This daddy-daughter team brings a whole new level of cuteness to the challenge. It seemed like just another laidback day in the residence of DJ Rhett when he and his daughter Meg decided to upload a dance video of their own. Both even had on plaid tops which highlighted the country music feel of the song and the steps. The two looked like they were having a blast just dancing and goofing around in their living room.
