Toby Keith described this track as "a classic country radio song" in publicity materials. He explained: "It's old-fashioned. I guess I get it from listening to The Roadhouse so much on XM Sirius Radio in my vehicles. But the song is very simply written, a very classic melody. Guys, hey it's 'just another sundown, just another bar stool, just another place where a fool can find another fool,' sad night in the world, sad night in the club."
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.
