Watch Craig Campbell and Actress Scarlett Johansson Sing “These Boots Are Made For Walkin’” During USO Tour in Afghanistan

Watch Craig Campbell and Actress Scarlett Johansson Sing “These Boots Are Made For Walkin’” During USO Tour in Afghanistan

While in Afghanistan on the USO’s star-studded holiday tour—which also included stops in Turkey, Qatar and Germany—Craig Campbell sat down with actress Scarlett Johansson [Lost In Translation, Lucy] to duet on Nancy Sinatra’s 1966 hit “These Boots Are Made For Walkin,” as part of his Women Cover Wednesday #WCW video series, where Craig covers songs originally recorded by women.

While Craig may have had some trouble kicking off the song, the Tony Award-winning ScarJo delivered her lines with a calm as cool as the Lieutenant Colonel Cavalry Stetson on his head. Watch the performance below.

Craig and Scarlett are on the six-day, four-country USO holiday tour with Captain America himself, actor Chris Evans, as well as NBA All-Star and Olympic gold medalist Ray Allen, four-time Olympic swimming medalist Maya DiRado and renowned mentalist and entertainer Jim Karol.

“I had a great time visiting and performing for our nation’s service members and military families just a few months ago with the USO,” said Craig in a statement. “I am so honored that General Dunford invited me on this incredibly important tour. It really means a lot to have the opportunity to give back to those who give so much and to bring a little piece of home to them during the holidays.”

Craig is encouraging viewers to please join him, alongside Scarlet and the USO, in being a Force Behind the Forces and help the USO send 1.4 million messages of support to service members around the world by year’s end.
