1. The Boot

The Boot is a honky-tonkin, line dancing, “she’s leaving” song with a driving backbeat and the raw-edged instrumentation of electric and pedal-steel guitars. The walking bass line keeps you moving as it builds to the turnaround in the final verse and chorus. With heavy influences from Bakersfield Country artists such as Dwight Yoakam, Marty Stuart, and The Mavericks, Michaels adds a modern outlaw flare to this classic country sound that will have everyone up dancing and singing along by the end of the first chorus. The Boot s is the lead single off Michaels' freshman EP “Some Things Never Change”.
