What is it about a country twang that gets you in your heart? Is that the reason most romance movies are set in some cowboy’s backyard that seems to have an affinity for blue jeans and holding doors open for girls? From the looks of things, country music and fashion are on the up and up.
Just think about the song “Old Town Road”!
Old Town Road is a song by Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus. It’s essentially a mixture of rap, hip-hop, and country! The song has acquired over 500 million views on YouTube alone! If it has shown us anything, people love the idea of leather chaps, a wide-brimmed hat, and a country singer’s voice. It just brings us back to a nostalgic time in the wild west, doesn’t it? We all wanted to be a cowboy for Halloween at some point.
Even Blake Shelton did his own version of an ’80s song!
When we think of dancing and the ”80s, few things make a better marriage than Footloose! Released in 1984 by Kenny Loggins, the song has inspired people worldwide to get up and dance. For that same reason, Blake Shelton decided to remake the song with his rich and twangy voice in 2011.
After the song released, some people started recording their own versions of the dance – with a country twist!
Since the song was redone, the dance had to be as well, right? Thankfully, these cowgirls donned the appropriate apparel and got to work recording their own version of Footloose, only this time, it was in boots! These six ladies didn’t hold back!
With the guitar and drums hitting hard, we see the girls for the first time – and they don’t disappoint!
Each of the girls has the perfect outfit for the dance! They are all wearing some type of “down south” apparel, completed with hats and boots. Dancing around to the classy voice of Blake, the girls dance back and forth in a perfect combination of a line-dance and the original Footloose dance.
With kicks and hops, you can see the marriage of the two styles!
Line dancing often uses kicks and hops through the routine and has become a common example of dancing in Texas and the south! Using those telltale moves in combination with the original Footloose moves, we get to see a one of a kind dance that perfectly matches the song!
All the comments on the video are in Spanish!
If you needed any more convincing that this was the real deal, all the video comments are in Spanish! From the way things look, these girls are probably real-deal cattle ranchers or farmers! Who better to combine ’80s pop with a country classic?
After watching the video, you might just want to go out and get yourself a hat!
Whether it’s Blake Shelton’s voice or the awesome dancing from the ladies, after watching this, you might just want to run to the store and get yourself a hat! Dances like this combine the best of what dancing has to offer: a classic song of the past, simple dance moves, and having a blast with your friends!
