Pat Boone’s Love Letter to Grits Comes to Life in New Music Video

Renowned music icon Pat Boone has delighted fans with the release of his latest music video, “Grits,” directed by Preston Leatherman for Tuff Contender. The video, which premiered on, is now available for streaming.

Shot against the backdrop of the historic Capitol Theatre in Lebanon, Tennessee, the video showcases Pat Boone’s spirited attempt at line dancing to the infectious track. Adding to the dynamic visuals, the video features the remarkable choreography of Jamie Marshall, known for her exceptional talent and creativity. Marshall is joined by dancers from across the Southeast, who bring their energy and passion to the performance.

“Grits” is an ode to the Southern food staple, extolling its virtues and superiority over other fancy foods such as escargot and pâté. The catchy chorus expresses gratitude for growing up in the country and enjoying hearty dishes like turnip greens and black-eyed peas, with the singer insisting that nothing beats the satisfaction of a warm bowl of grits. The “Grits” lyric video is also available for streaming on YouTube (here).
