Stacy Burk is a country music artist from Van Alstyne, Texas. His musical influences are George Strait, Don Williams and Jim Reeves – you can hear that in his voice. He’s a genuine cowboy – you can see that in his confident demeanor. 

Through a professional music consultant, Stacy was introduced to industry icon, Josh Leo (Alabama, Reba McEntire, Restless Heart, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Martina McBride, Kathy Mattea and LeAnn Rimes), and convinced him to produce his record. Leo, the industry proclaimed "Renaissance Man" recently celebrated another #1 song with Love and Theft’s "Angel Eyes" – the 23rd #1 song that Leo has touched in his 30-plus-year-music career as a songwriter, producer and musician.

Through a mutual friend Stacy reached out to Los Angeles based director, Dave West. Stacy was looking for a story or concept for a video for the song, "Til Your Boots are Dirty" and had seen two of West's short films ("Puddlejumper" & "The Do Over"). West came up with the idea of taking a ‘city boy’ to the country and over the course of the song he gets his ‘boots dirty’ and transforms into a ‘country boy.’ West and Burk polished the idea and then brainstormed on how to find a way to have the song and specifically the video to pop through an incredibly crowded landscape. They understood that going "viral" is not something you can really plan, but prepping yourself to be able to maximize social media is.  

Through his multiple seasons working as a producer on Dancing with the Stars, West befriended Maksim Chmerkovskiy. One call to Maks explaining the story was all he needed to come onboard.
