A cowboy from Maryland showed off his moves after a man from the audience challenged him as they danced to the beat of “Watermelon Crawl.”
The video of the dance-off became a hit for social media users and had become viral. The four-minute clip shows off a man dressed as a cowboy enjoying a night of line-dancing at Bob Jackson’s in Elkton, Maryland.
The man was dancing to Tracy Byrd’s “Watermelon Crawl,” which became a big hit in 1994.
Up until today, the song remains a staple tune for many line-dancers.
In the video, the man was dancing at the center and surrounded by many dancing women. He quickly stole attention as he stood out on the dance floor.
Soon enough, a man from the audience stood up and walked towards the center. He started to show off his moves and seemed to be challenging the cowboy.
They performed neat dance moves in a close battle with the cowboy giving his all.
The duo’s line-dancing battle was epic, and the video has already received more than half a million hits.
In history, line-dancing became very popular in the 90’s when songs like “Boot-Scootin' Boogie” by Brooks & Dunn, “God Bless Texas” by Little Texas, and “Chattahoochee” by Alan Jackson were released.
Line-dancing did not originate from country music fans, but the dance soon became associated with the genre when Billy Ray Cyrus put out “Achy Breaky Heart.”
Even until now, the song remains to be the most popular line-dance song in history.
In fact, several children line-danced to the song while they were in their cowboy and cowgirl costumes.
