Have you ever tried dining at Texas Roadhouse? If so,  you most probably had a great experience. The food is great, service is amazing, and there’s satiating live entertainment to complete your dining experience. The staff at the said restaurant are not only skilled in preparing food and serving it to their customers; they are talented entertainers, as well. Even in the middle of what they’re doing, as long as a particular song starts playing, they stop. The next thing you’ll see at the middle of the restaurant is a group of guys showing off their dancing skills.

Their exceptional twirling talents brought the restaurant workers to prominence. The restaurant chain began hosting line dancing contests for their staff. Often, the Texas Roadhouse staff in Worcester, Massachusetts top the competitions they join in.

Moving to the Beat of Blake Shelton’s “Footloose”

In 2015, the group created an intricate line dance entry to Blake Shelton’s rendition of “Footloose.” Given the song’s upbeat tempo and hearing Shelton’s enticing cover, you can’t help but sway your body to it. This is why these dance-talent restaurant workers chose the song as their background music. Crafting a dance movement that would fit the sound was challenging though. The moves have to be pretty fast. However, each member proves there’s nothing they can’t perfect. They managed to keep up with the routine they’ve made. You can hardly notice any irregularity in their entertaining steps comprising of a series of kicks, claps, turns, and other fun moves.

“Footloose” was originally recorded by rock music artist Kenny Loggins in 1984. His record was a chart-topper on Billboard Hot 100 and spent a three-week run atop the chart. A film of the same name used this version for its soundtrack. In 2011, a remake of the film was made. This time, the soundtrack was a cover from Blake Shelton making it more of a country music influence.

I know you can’t wait to see the Texas Roadhouse staff’s winning line dance entry.
