California native Jon Pardi boot-scooted up to NYC today (March 23) to perform his recent No. 1 hit, “Dirt on My Boots,” on Good Morning America.
Donning his best denim, hat and boots, the ACM New Male Vocalist of the Year got “cleaned up” for the gig, but only “so fancy,” just like it says in the lyrics of the aforementioned tune.
“I saw my 22-year-old self getting off a tractor and going to take a shower and putting his work boots back on and going and hanging out with a girl and having a good time dancing or something,” Jon said previously about the song. “And I really connected to the lyrics of it. It’s very country lyrics. It has tractors. It has cutting a rug. My favorite [line]: ‘I can get cleaned up, but I can only get so fancy,’ and I loved it. It was a great written country lyric, and I really think we made it more of a traditional feel with a modern flair to it, and I was really proud of that track.”
