Brooks & Dunn, Midland Bring ‘Boot Scootin’ Boogie’ to the ‘Tonight’ Show [Watch]
Brooks & Dunn and Midland took the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon stage on Tuesday (April 9) to make their television debut together of their collaboration on Brooks & Dunn's classic hit, "Boot Scootin' Boogie."
Fallon was extremely enthusiastic and thrilled for the collaboration. He introduces them in the video above by yelling, "Everybody, are you ready? Turn up the volume right now!"
The five-piece band brought the audience and host Fallon to their feet with their boot stomping performance. It even seemed like this was, in fact, a five-piece band and not two groups coming together.
"Yeah, heel-toe, do si do / Come on baby let's go boot scootin' / Oh Cadillac, blackjack / Baby meet me out back / We're gonna boogie / Oh, get down, turn around, go to town / Boot scootin' boogie," they sang in the chorus.
"That's how you do it right there! Thank you so much, oh god, unbelievable!" Fallon yelled in response to their energetic performance of the song, which gave Brooks & Dunn their fourth consecutive No. 1 single when it was released as the fourth single from their debut album, Brand New Man, in 1992.
Midland are among the artists who collaborated with Brooks & Dunn on their latest studio album, Reboot, which features re-recordings of the duo's classic hit songs alongside today's brightest stars.
"We’re simply honored to have collaborated with a couple of our heroes on one of the most slamming honky tonk songs of all time...This is Brooks & Dunn as the 5 piece band of our dreams! #reboot #bootscootinboogie" the trio shared on their Facebook page on April 5, the day the song was released.
