"Mama Don't Get Dressed Up For Nothing" is a song co-written and recorded by American country music duo Brooks & Dunn. It was released in September 1996 as the third single from their CD Borderline, and their eighteenth single overall. The song received moderate success on the US Country chart, where it peaked at number 13, while it was a number 8 hit in Canada. It was the first single the duo released that missed the US country top 10, breaking a streak of 17 straight top 10 entries; the next eight singles Brooks and Dunn released after this would also make the country top 10. This is the fourth single to feature Kix Brooks on lead vocals instead of Ronnie Dunn. Kix and Ronnie wrote this song, along with Don Cook.
The music video for this song was directed by Michael Oblowitz. The video takes place at a Brooks & Dunn concert, with certain scenes cutting to two women who are preparing to go to the concert and make a quick stop and the girl smashes a picture on the road, and also cutting to a man at a ranch. The album cover of the duo's album Borderline can be barely seen in the background of the stage at the concert at the beginning of the video. The two women are seen at the concert among the entire audience towards the end of the video.
"Mama Don't Get Dressed Up for Nothing" debuted at number 74 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs chart for the week of September 14, 1996.
