"Boot Scootin' Boogie" is the fourth single by American country music duo Brooks & Dunn. Before its release, the band Asleep at the Wheel recorded it on their 1990 album Keepin' Me Up Nights. Brooks & Dunn's version was included on their debut album Brand New Man and originally served as the b-side to its second single, "My Next Broken Heart." The single was the duo's fourth release, as well as their fourth consecutive Number One single on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks charts. Alvin and the Chipmunks released a cover, done in their signature style, for the 1993 re-release of Urban Chipmunk.
The song is a tribute to the Texas style honky tonk's line dancing.
Its success is cited as having started a renewed interest in line dancing throughout the United States. The song was also their first crossover hit as it reached #50 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. A dance mix of "Boot Scootin' Boogie" can be found on Brooks & Dunn's 1993 album Hard Workin' Man.
The music video was directed by Michael Merriman. It shows the duo performing at a concert. The video was filmed at the Tulsa City Limits Night Club in Tulsa Oklahoma.
"Boot Scootin' Boogie" debuted at number 73 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks for the week of May 23, 1992.
