1. The Boot

The new single release from Joe Michaels, “The Boot,” (written and produced by the artist) 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. Influenced by the legendary Bakersfield sound and artists like Dwight Yoakam, Marty Stuart, and The Mavericks, Michaels brings a modern outlaw flare to his classic country style.
