Boots


Ceekay tagged me for a meme of listing five embarrassing songs I like. I honestly couldn’t think of five, but I finally thought of three.

The first is “Boot Scoot Boogie” by Brooks and Dunn. It really isn’t embarrassing to me that I love it, but some people do make fun of my love of some country music. I just love the beat of this song! When I was single, I tried a little line dancing. This was my favorite dance! I don’t know how to put the You Tube on here, but here’s the link, see if it stays on your mind all day! It will sure make you happy! I also played a few other songs by them, and love them!

The second is Achy Breaky Heart by Billy Ray Cyrus. I still like that silly song! It was a hard line dance, for me, I don’t think I ever did get the hang of it!

The third embarrassing song is “Swingin.” The story of why I like this song: I went to junior and senior high school with Lionel Delmore who wrote this song. He was even president of our senior class. At our recent 50th reunion, we honored his memory, and sang the song! He passed away in 2002. His father and uncle were “famous” Delmore brothers country music singers, who had hits such as Beautiful Brown Eyes (that they wrote.) To continue with the story – when Lionel and I were in 7th grade, he had a crush on me. He would bring his guitar to school and the teacher would let him sing. Once he looked right at me and sang “Beautiful, beautiful brown eyes!” (I have brown eyes!) I was soooo embarrassed! We never dated (when we were old enough to) but we were friends. The hit song "Swingin" is sung "swanging!" Have any of you ever heard this song?

Here are some websites you can read about Lionel.

I’m not going to tag anyone, but if you have some embarrassing songs, please share them with us, and let me know you did!

Note: The boots above are the ones I used to wear back when I was line dancing, I can't bear to part with them! I also have a little short skirt (above the knee) that I used to wear, doubt it still fits, but I kept it too! I might add that my Brooklyn born husband doesn't care for country music, he teased me when he saw me with them on today, but I think he enjoyed seeing them! LOL!

I know your country songs. I love to line dance. I am terrible at it, but I love it. Wish it would become more popular again. Your boots are perfect and I would keep them too. So fun that you played along. Have a good week.

Your boots are so cute. I can really imagine your dancing up a storm in them. How sweet to be courted by a boy with a guitar. :)

I like Brooks and Dunn when I need some energy, like on cleaning days.

Katherine those boots look great on you!
How interesting about the Swingin' song. I love all three songs as well.
How fun to have had a song sung to you, even if it was embarassing at the time!

That is a fascinating story about Lionel Delmore! Thank you for sharing that!
You probably know that I don't care for country music, but I did go through a "phase", and those other two songs you mentioned were popular then.
(thanks for getting boot scootin' going through my head! :)

Katherine,

Love your boots. I wouldn't part with them either. They are so cool!

I know Boot Scootin' Boogie, Achey Breaky Heart and Swinging. Boot Scootin' Boogie has a good beat and Swingin' was one of my favorites way back when.

Sorry I haven't been over to visit lately. Now I'm going to read your previous post. "The Poconos" caught my eye as I was typing this.
