This the first single from the re-released version of Canadian vocalist Michael Bublé's Crazy Love album. The song, originally titled "Hollywood is Dead," was left over from the recording sessions for the original Crazy Love record. It was released worldwide on September 7, 2010.
Bublé co-wrote the track with Toronto songwriter Robert Scott. He told Billboard magazine: "That's probably the best pop song I've ever been part of. It's kind of like our take on the culture of celebrity and how f--ked up it is and how people lose their way in the hunt for fame. It's just one of those things saying, 'If you're gonna go for it, don't give everything up for it. Remember where you came from... You need to remember what you asked for when you get it.'"
The song's music video parodies several celebrities, including Canadian teen idol Justin Bieber. Speaking of the clip, Bublé told The Sun: "The video is about celebrity culture, people's dreams about fame and what can go with it. You can see what fun I had playing the characters."
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.
Mike Campbell from Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers played the slide guitar on "Sixth Avenue Heartache." There is a connection here - Wallflowers lead singer Jakob's dad, Bob Dylan, played with Tom Petty in The Traveling Wilburys.
