Jimmy and Jane Barnes have continued their At Home performances with a dressed to kill version of Hank Williams ‘Hey Good Lookin’.
Jimmy posted, “A bit of fun in the kitchen tonight. If we could have got the horses in we would have. It’s hard to kiss with cowboy hats on.”
For last night’s song he says, “I was trying to think of a way we could get a bit of cooking, along with good looking into a song and this is what we came up with”.
