Bassist JoJo Garza told the San Antonio News July 4, 2008 how this song came about: "I was here at the house, and I was jamming around with an acoustic guitar, recording. I just started playing. I had the music before I had the words were even done. We got together, us three, and finished it off."
Ronnie Dunn wrote "Boot Scootin' Boogie" before he teamed up with Kix Brooks to form Brooks & Dunn. It was originally recorded by the country group Asleep At The Wheel, but Brooks & Dunn did it themselves when it got its own line dance.
