Lovin’ ain’t easy in this one-honky-tonk town, so when the bartender and the bandleader fall for the same dance hall girl, you’re in for an evening of showstoppers and toe-tappers, cat fights, and love quadrangles that’ll keep any joint jumpin’ till way past last call. And if you think you got the gumption, you’re welcome to get up and dance along.
