Did you know that one of Brooks & Dunn’s biggest hits wasn’t originally recorded by the dynamic duo? ‘Boot Scootin’ Boogie’ was recorded by Asleep At The Wheel just a year before Brooks & Dunn, but it never found its way to radio. Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn cut the song for their debut album and, as they say, the rest is history.
‘Boot Scootin’ Boogie’ was a driving force in the resurgence of line dancing in the ‘90s and became a signature song for the duo who also garnered a Grammy nomination for their rendition of the song.
More than 20 years later, ‘Boot Scootin’ Boogie’ is finding a new audience. 10-year old Maddox Ross wasn’t even born when the song was released, but you’d never know it by the way he performed it at the Oklahoma Centennial Rodeo Opry. Ross looked every bit the part of a country star as he engaged the audience during his toe-tapping rendition of the Brooks & Dunn hit.
