Now, back to Luke. Back in March, the star livestreamed an acoustic performance of the “Knockin’ Boots” from his home on his Facebook page. The video was one of the most-viewed clips by a musician in its first seven days of release, racking up 1.7 million views (currently 2.8 million) landing it at the #1 spot on Billboard’s Top Facebook Live Videos chart. Watch the performance below!

“Knockin’ Boots” was written by Hillary Lindsey, Gordie Sampson and Jon Nite. The song follows Luke’s recent 22nd career #1 single “What Makes You Country,” the fourth consecutive #1 song from his What Makes You Country album.

After the American Idol finale, the star will launch his Sunset Repeat Tour on May 31 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania at the BB&T Pavilion.

“Knockin’ Boots” Lyrics

This truck needs a half tank
These wheels need a two-lane
This radio needs three songs to play
To get me across town to you
That dress needs to slip off
That hair needs to come down
Friday nights need to do
What Friday nights need to do
That’s the truth
Yeah, birds need bees and ice needs whiskey
Boys like me need the girls like you to kiss me
Fishing in the dark needs Nitty Gritty
Under that pale moon
Sweet tea needs that sugar stirring
Small town nights need both ends burning
Shades need drawing, hearts need falling
Boots need knocking, knocking boots
Knocking boots, me and you, oh
Long weeks need a weekend
Cheap drinks need a-slinging
That dance floor needs some me on you
And you want me tonight
Singalongs need to be sung
Tip bells need to be rung
Last calls need a call that cab
And backseats need I want you so bad
Yeah, birds need bees and ice needs whiskey
Boys like me need the girls like you to kiss me
Fishing in the dark needs Nitty Gritty
Under that pale moon
Sweet tea needs that sugar stirring
Small town nights need both ends burning
Shades need drawing, hearts need falling
Boots need knocking, knocking boots
Knocking boots, girl me and yo
Doors need shutting
Lights need cutting
Lips need locking
Boots need knocking
And birds need bees and ice needs whiskey
Boys like me need the girls like you to kiss me
Fishing in the dark needs Nitty Gritty
Under that pale moon
Sweet tea needs that sugar stirring
Small town nights need both ends burnin’
Shades need drawing, hearts need falling
Boots need knocking, knocking boots
Mmm, knocking boots, me and you, oh
Knocking boots
