George Strait Blows The Roof Clean Off With Cover Of Brooks & Dunn’s “Boot Scootin’ Boogie”


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, floating… 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…

George Strait Nearly Breaks His Own RodeoHouston Attendance Record

Looks like King George brought the house down at RodeoHouston.

Of course, what’s the world’s biggest rodeo without George Strait himself?

The country legend drew a crowd of 79,452 fans, almost topping his 2019 appearance, where he set an NRG Stadium record of 80,108 fans.

For this year’s show, he played an astounding 29 songs over a course of two-plus hours, according to Houston Culture Map.

Although he drew nearly an identical crowd at his 2019 show, which featured Texas country legends Robert Earn Keen and Lyle Lovett, he decided to bring in a young face to join him on stage this year as an opener, and it was Ashley McBryde.

She performed her hits like “Martha Devine,” “A Little Dive Bar in Dahlonega,” “Voodoo Doll,” “Whiskey + Country Music,” as well as a kickass rendition of the Allman Brothers’ “Midnight Rider.”

After a 20 minute intermission, it was time for Strait to hit the stage.

He strutted on stage reppin’ a red and white plaid dress shirt, a black cowboy hat, blue jeans, and brown cowboy boots.

He kicked things off with his Pure Country movie hit song, “Heartland,” and the crowd was on their feet, roaring.

Needless to say, it was quite the memorable night for the man.
