Kevin Bacon sings his GOATS as he performs an acoustic cover of Beyonce’s Heated from his farmhouse

He recently attempted to recreate the viral dance from his classic film Footloose, which left his wife Kyra Sedgwick with a wrist injury.

But Kevin Bacon opted for a much more modest look on Sunday when he posted a video to social media of himself singing an acoustic cover version of Beyoncé’s new kid, Heated.

The 64-year-old actor strums a red guitar while sitting on a wooden platform in what looks like his Connecticut ranch, while his curious goats climb up for a closer look.

Singer Barnyard: Kevin Bacon, 64, showed off his vocal and guitar skills on Sunday when he posted a video of himself covering Beyoncé Heated's new song.

Kevin’s lo-fi video shows him sitting on a wooden platform, which appears to be a play area for his goat, with an exposed hiding place under his feet and a long plastic tube they can pass to his side.

He was casually dressed on a sunny day in a white tank top, slim gray jeans and a red-and-white trainer, while he wore a gray truck cap and sunglasses.

‘Hot day, hot song,’ he says at the beginning of the clip before he starts strumming his guitar.

Beyoncé’s original song, which is featured on her latest hit album, Renaissance, opens to a sparse reggaeton beat, but Kevin’s version is very different with the whisper vocals and synchronized guitar.

The Renaissance version of Heated ends with Beyoncé giving a pompous rap, but the Apollo 13 actor skipped that part and focused on the right song.

Kevin’s goat can’t seem to get enough of his sweet notes, and one scapegoat climbs the platform to nudge his guitar, while the others relax by his side behind him.

‘He’s really playing!’ Kevin exclaimed in the middle of his performance after the scapegoat bit the strings and accidentally strummed a high note.

‘The goat and I are feeling hot, @Beyonce. Loved this track. #GoatSongs #Renaissance,” Kevin added in the caption.

‘That’s pretty good!’ he agrees at the end of the clip, before stroking his goat affectionately.

Beyoncé released Renaissance, her seventh studio album, on July 29, following the release of the follow-up single Break My Soul.

The album was an instant hit, debuting atop the Billboard 200 album chart, and receiving widespread critical acclaim.

Despite showing that he is still a capable vocalist, Kevin is better known as a dancer thanks to his outstanding role in Footloose.

Earlier this summer, he joined in a viral dance from the film in which he had to carry his wife Kyra Sedgwick aside, before dropping her and turning her back in his arms.

The maneuver didn’t go as well as it seemed in the video, as he later shared a photo of the actress applying dab to her injured wrist.
