"Ain't Nothing 'bout You" is a song written by Tom Shapiro and Rivers Rutherford and recorded by American country music duo Brooks & Dunn. It was released on February 12, 2001 as the first single from Brooks & Dunn’s album Steers & Stripes. The song was nominated by the Country Music Association for Single of the Year. It spent six consecutive weeks as the No. 1 song on the US Country chart, and eventually ranked as the chart's No. 1 song of 2001. It also reached No. 25 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and ranked No. 71 for the year on that chart.

In 2019, Brooks & Dunn re-recorded "Ain't Nothing 'bout You" with American country music artist Brett Young for their album Reboot.

Critical reception[edit]

Chuck Taylor, of Billboard magazine reviewed the song favorably calling it "a sultry, hook-laden tune that finds Ronnie Dunn in fine vocal form." He says that this single represents a departure from Brooks & Dunn's signature honky-tonk style.[1]

Cover versions[edit]

Country/Pop music singer Taylor Swift covered the song from The Last Rodeo Tour

Music video[edit]

The music video was directed by Trey Fanjoy. It features a model, (a then unknown Alana De La Garza of Law & Order fame) who is the central character of the video. It was shot in an abandoned warehouse, and shot in green. It was also the only video by the duo to be directed by Fanjoy. Throughout the video, the model is seen in different layouts. The duo are performing, with a full band, on a high platform, in front of a screen, projecting the model's scenes. The model is also seen poking her head through thin blinds, seen as both the first, and last image of the video. The video was released in March 2001.
