Back in 2010, the Academy of Country Music brought some of country’s biggest stars together to honor one of the most iconic duos in country music history… the great Brooks & Dunn. Brad Paisley, Miranda Lambert, Carrie Underwood, Jason Aldean, Tim McGraw, even Taylor Swift… tons of artists were there to pay tribute to Kix and Ronnie.
But there was another artist there, even more legendary than Brooks & Dunn… the great George Strait.
Donning a bright white suit jacket, and even his glasses, George walked onto that stage like an angel walks through Heaven. Glowing, with a certain holy reverence about him. And after some kind words about Kix and Ronnie, King George went to work on an electric cover of the 1991 classic, “Boot Scootin’ Boogie.”
And he blew the damn roof off.
How about that baby-faced Luke Bryan in the crowd too? Time flies…
