Nelson And Simpson Re-Make 'These Boots...'

Country legend WILLIE NELSON is recording a duet version of NANCY SINATRA's hit THESE BOOTS ARE MADE FOR WALKING, with popstar JESSICA SIMPSON.

The track will be for the first single from the soundtrack to new movie THE DUKES OF HAZZARD, in which they both star.

The unlikely duo have vowed to perform a "funk-defied" version of the track, with new lyrics written by Simpson - who plays the DUKE brothers' sexy cousin DAISY DUKE.

Soundtrack co-producer JIMMY JAM tells MTV NEWS, "LORETTA LYNN also did a version, so we took elements of both (Lynn and Sinatra's) and funk-defied it a little bit.

"And Jessica wrote a whole new set of lyrics that put her in the Daisy Duke character in the movie."
