The Cadillac Three Discuss 'Boots'

The Cadillac Three

(Radio.com) There are a lot of subjects that pop up often in country lyrics these days, and "boots" would be high up on that list. And boots are pretty central to the Cadillac Three's latest album, Bury Me in My Boots.

"Eric Church has a song called 'These Boots,' and that's a moment at his show when everyone takes their boots and holds them up," frontman Jaren Johnston tells Radio.com. "The cool thing about a boot' I've been all over the world in these boots. These boots have been on every stage that I've been on in in the last year and a half. Think about the stories this boot, if it could talk, would tell. There's a lot of good things about boots, man, they can tell good stories."

He also notes that they make him a bit taller, and also: "We thought the [album] cover would look really cool, with three pairs of our boots. We're all very proud of the record. And that riff on 'Bury Me in My Boots,' even [ZZ Top's] Billy Gibbons would say 'Hell, yeah.' We're excited: [the album's] fourteen songs of 'Hell, yeah!'"

Johnston notes that the record is notably different from their self titled debut from 2012: "The record is pretty much three years of us traveling the world. The first record we did in four or five days in a little room in Nashville. This [album] was the exact opposite. This kinda shows where we've been, all the songs were written on the back of a bus, most of the vocals were done on the back of a bus because we travel so much. 'Bury Me in My Boots' was the only one that all three of us sat down and wrote together. And that's kinda why we called the record that." Read more here.
