"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 managed to cross over to the pop charts, reaching #25 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and ranking #71 for the year on that chart.
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.
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.
"Ain't Nothing 'bout You" debuted at No. 48 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart for the week of February 17, 2001.
