Very similar to the American-style Waltz, the Country Western Waltz is danced to country music with waltz (3/4) timing. Dancers in this style distinguish it from other types of Waltz by wearing different attire, specifically cowboy hats for the leader and dance boots for both the leader and follower. Because country music often is written in Waltz timing, this dance is very popular among those who frequent country western clubs and competitions.
