Monday’s ACM Awards closed with a rousing performance from Brothers Osborne and Brittney Spencer, who joined forces for a cover of Nancy Sinatra’s “These Boots Are Made For Walkin’.” After their show-stopping rendition of the 1966 chart-topper, Sinatra took to social media to react to the performance.
The singer and actress, 81, admitted she “loved” what Spencer and Brothers Osborne did with the song.
“I’m always flattered when young people find me. I’m glad the song still has a life of its own,” she shared.
Loved what @brothersosborne and @BrittNicx did with Boots on the @ACMawards tonight! I’m always flattered when young people find me. I’m glad the song still has a life of its own. Thanks, Barton Lee. Congrats on your win tonight, John and TJ! #ACMawards #ACMs pic.twitter.com/4HOaiKMHdM

Sinatra also congratulated John and TJ Osborne for their Duo of the Year win, which was their third win in the category.
The performance marked Spencer’s ACM Awards debut and it certainly won’t be her last.
