Pat Boone Shows Off His Dance Moves at 89 Years Old in New Music Video

Pat Boone is here to prove that he still has moves— even at 89 years old.

Pat Boone recently sat down for an exclusive interview with PEOPLE, where he delved into his deep connection to his country roots.

He gained popularity as a teenage idol in the ’50s and ’60s. While he is most recognized for his chart-toppers like “Ain’t That a Shame” and “April Love,” Boone’s musical career also includes a noteworthy collection of “a couple hundred country songs” that he has recorded over the course of his career.

“I grew up in the country, so to not really be thought of as a country performer has always rankled me,” he jokingly said.

His country roots go further than most think, also influencing his unwavering love of Southern cuisine—  more specifically his dedicated love for grits. In fact, his love for grits is so powerful that it lead him to creating his newest single, titled ‘Grits.’

When talking about how the song came into existance, Boone revealed that the idea came to him in a dream.

“I dreamed I was having a big country hit record,” Boone said. “People were congratulating me, and even in my dream, I was singing some of it. I came out of the dream with the first verse.”

And of course, what comes along with a “big country hit record,” there arrives an enjoyable music video where Boone impresses with his unexpected dance skills.

“I’m not a gifted dancer by any means. I’m 89, so trying to learn that peppy line dance which was created for ‘Grits’ was a lot,” he said.
