Big Band Country
There's no denying it, Big Band Country really shows you who Nancy Hays is as a vocalist. It's all here—my love of swing and standards, a song I composed for my beloved father, the first song I ever sang for my husband, a long-time rodeo favorite for the UK fans, and much, much more.
I hope you enjoy listening and dancing to these songs as much as I enjoy performing them. For the first time ever, this record was truly effortless for me. I hope you like getting to know the complete Nancy Hays. Thanks for listening!

A veteran stage performer, Nancy is accustomed to singing with a full orchestra. In this collection, however, she proves she is equally at ease crooning to the elegantly styled accompaniment of Robert Benson on the Grand piano.
Come Dance With Me
"Great traditional and modern country music, sung by a talented new vocalist guaranteed to bring you out to dance".
"Come Dance with Me....performed by a lady with a voice that makes you feel you have known her for years. You want to sing along and then can't stop your feet tapping to the gentle Swing rhythmn. Jo Thompson put together a lovely beginner line dance of the same name that has taken off everywhere".
