Wash your cares away with this jukebox musical full of country favorites from Carrie Underwood, Trisha Yearwood, Reba McEntire, Tammy Wynette, Loretta Lynn, Patsy Cline, and more! When Lana Mae Hopkins, owner and proprietress of the Wishy Washy Washateria, hires Katie to help out, they soon find themselves up to their elbows in soap, suds, and cheatin’ hearts. The women join forces to transform the laundromat into a bootscootin’ honky-tonk and exact a touch of revenge against those that done ‘em wrong.
Featuring Country favorites like: “Why’d You Come In Here Lookin’ Like That,” “Stand By Your Man,” “Before He Cheats,” “These Boots Were Made For Walkin’,” “I Fall To Pieces,” “Goodbye Earl,” and more!
