Jessica and Willie Get Funk-Defied

As you probably remember, Jessica Simpson and Willie Nelson are doing a remake of "These Boots Are Made for Walking." has some details:

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."
Sounds great, but I don't know why they want to defy funk.
