Big D’s Country Music Trivia Quiz

Last month’s quiz was won by Margaret Brown with 8 correct answers. There will be no quiz this month as I am working on a new format.  It will resume in June, but from that date, it will be bi-monthly with the prize being free entry to a club night for two people.
