Bonner Bolton Ready To ‘Boot Scootin’ Boogie’ On Dancing With The Stars

The Star Telegram has a cool article published on Bonner Bolton and Sharna Burgess. Sharna remarks how competitive and incredibly talented her new partner is. Bonner says he’s “ready” to do a little ‘Boot Scootin’ Boogie’.

“I wanted to be on ‘Dancing With the Stars’ because it’s the first competition opportunity I’ve had in over a year now,” says Bolton, who lives in the Dallas area. “When they gave me the opportunity and said, ‘Would you like to do this?’, I jumped right on.

“I said, ‘Heck, yeah. I’m ready.’ ”

The two-hour season premiere begins at 7 p.m. Monday on ABC. The Season 24 opener is the milestone 400th episode of “Dancing With the Stars.”

The eclectic collection of 12 celebrity dancers ranges from world-class athletes to “Where Are They Now?”-type showbiz personalities. Each has a compelling personal reason to compete, but Bolton’s story is likely to make him a sentimental fan favorite.

Sharna Burgess, Bolton’s dance partner, has certainly been impressed.

“He is highly competitive, incredibly determined,” she says. “He is going to have some dance moves.”

“I’m pretty flexible, especially for a guy who broke his neck a year ago,” Bolton says.

His experience on the dance floor pretty much begins and ends with honky-tonking.

“I can do a little ‘Boot Scootin’ Boogie,’ ” he boasts.
