Superstar Kelly Clarkson transported viewers of The Kelly Clarkson Show to a honky-tonk with her latest “Kellyoke” performance. 

The Texas native had her country roots on full display as she belted out the lyrics to Brooks & Dunn‘s 1992 hit, “Boot Scootin’ Boogie.” 

Clarkson’s performance was praised by fans as they applauded her energy and overall enthusiasm. Others once again begged the GRAMMY winner to finally release a country album. 

“We need a country album ASAP,” wrote one YouTube user.

“Boot Scootin’ Boogie” was released by Brooks & Dunn on their 1991 debut album, Brand New Man. Although to duo made the song famous, Asleep at the Wheel actually recorded the song first for their 1990 project, Keeping’ My Up Nights. 

The song was a massive hit for Brooks & Dunn and went on to become their fourth consecutive chart-topping single at country radio. The duo later re-recorded it with country trio Midland.
