Yeah, Maksim Chmerkovskiy always did look good in those country costumes, and now the longtime Dancing With the Stars pro is the featured star of Stacy Burk's great new music video for his song, "Til Your Boots Are Dirty.”

In the video, Maks plays a prime example of how a man isn't country until his "boots are dirty." He shows up in the vid dressed like a city boy trying to be a cowboy, and the lovely lady he's trying to woo successfully country-fies his clothes, dancing, and watermelon-salting. She even gets our fish-out-of-water skinny dipping (yep, there’s a brief shirtless moment), packing hay, riding a truck, and saddlin’ horses.

It's a really cute video. Maks always makes everything better — and he does eventually get to show off his impressive dance moves — but it's also a good showcase for his comedic skills. The joke's on him for most of the 4-minute video, until his Pygmalion transformation is complete. Maybe Maks can show this to some casting directors and get himself a role in a Hollywood rom-com. We'd see it!

Watch the video below. What do you think? Is the song stuck in your head now? That's not a bad thing!
