Do you remember the iconic hit "That Don't Impress Me Much" by Shania Twain? Well, get ready to experience it in a whole new way! Oklahoma-born Nashville resident Kaitlin Butts, along with DJ Disko Cowboy and dance band French Horn Rebellion, has released a fresh and captivating take on this timeless classic.

A Fusion of Dance and Country Music

Kaitlin Butts is not only a talented singer-songwriter but also a master of drama and whimsy on stage. She has previously released dance-friendly reimaginings like "White River" and "Marfa Lights." Now, she has joined forces with DJ Disko Cowboy and French Horn Rebellion to create a unique blend of country and dance music.

A Nostalgic Inspiration

Butts, who grew up listening to Shania Twain, shares her connection to the original track. She recalls hearing it while riding in the backseat of her mother's car, going to musical theatre class or enjoying leisurely cruises on pontoons at Eulafula Lake Reservoir. "That Don't Impress Me Much" was an empowering anthem for her and continues to inspire her as an artist today.

Bridging Dance and Country Music

This dance cover is not just a one-off project. It reflects a larger trend in the music industry where dance culture is finding its way into country music's mainstream. Similar to the "Urban Cowboy" movement of the early 1980s, we are witnessing a rise in house music edits of country classics and Western-themed parties. Disco Cowboy's schedule for 2024 includes spinning alongside renowned artists like Orville Peck, Flatland Cavalry, and Hayes Carll on Midland's Miami-based "Last Resort" cruise in April.

A Nationwide Trend

The fusion of dance and country is not limited to one region. Los Angeles is also playing a significant role in this movement with Stud Country, a line-dancing-driven homage to queer dance spaces and LGBTQ cowboy culture. Additionally, the Desert 5 Spot bar in the city has become a hotspot for this unique blend of genres. Country line dancing at Manhattan's Ukrainian East Village Restaurant, inspired by the success of these dance parties, further showcases the growing popularity of this trend.

The Future of Kaitlin Butts

For Kaitlin Butts, this collaboration is just the beginning. Her previous releases, "What Else Can She Do" and "Marfa Lights," have already captivated audiences with their unique storytelling and melodic narratives. She is determined to continue pushing boundaries and exploring new musical territories. The release of "That Don't Impress Me Much" also includes a remix by Blake Ward, the founder of DiscoTX, Dallas' largest disco party.

So get ready to dance, sing along, and experience the magic of this reimagined hit. As Kaitlin Butts herself says, "[Our re-imagining] puts a pep in your step, gives you some Shania 'tude, and makes you wanna boot, scoot, AND boogie!"
