WCFB (Star 94.5) in Orlando has announced the creation of a line dance for Beyonce's hit song, "Texas Hold 'Em." The dance was crafted to capture the rhythm and energy of the song, allowing listeners to groove to the music in a fun and engaging way. "Texas Hold 'Em" has made Beyonce the first Black woman to lead the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. The song has reached over 16 million airplay impressions on the radio.

The inspiration for the Beyonce "Texas Hold 'Em" Line Dance came from WCFB (Star 94.5) air personality Jojo, who expressed her desire to engage with listeners and create a dance. JoJo is heard on three of Cox Media stations, including WHJX (Hot 106.5) in Jacksonville and WBTV (The Vibe 105.1) in Tampa Bay.

JoJo's enthusiasm sparked a creative collaboration between Star 94.5 and Orlando's dance instructor Vinetta G to bring the dance to life. This professional instructor carefully choreographed the dance to highlight the song's infectious beats and empower everyone to unleash their inner dancer.

"What caught my attention with this song was watching African Americans doing this dance on YouTube," said Star 94.5 Director of Branding & Programming Elroy Smith. "We wanted to do an urban twist to this dance. We asked our listeners to join us and they responded in their cowboy attire and quickly learned our version of 'Texas Hold Em.' They were engaged, excited, and appreciative to be a part of this line-dance craze."
