With just weeks left until the November 15th release of their debut album with Big Machine Label Group, Ocean, Lady Antebellum has released yet another preview track, “Boots.” Co-written by Charles Kelley and Ross Copperman (“John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16,” “Love Ain’t”, “Get Along”), the track is a rocking uptempo to contrast with the album’s other previously released tracks.
“Boots” continues the theme of Lady A’s return to its musical roots, sounding easily like a track that could’ve appeared on one of the group’s earliest albums. Sonically, the song is remnant of the group’s earliest hits, including “Love Don’t Live Here.”
Led by Kelley’s raspy growl, the song tells the tale of a pair of boots that “took a while to find their place/ but you know they’re here to stay.” His voice is only complemented here by Hillary Scott and Dave Haywood’s harmonies, but the song is Kelley’s moment to shine. The Lady A frontman professes his love and devotion to the woman in his life through a tale of two boots, singing “Yeah, these boots, never walkin’ out on you/ They ain’t got no more running left to do.”
Accompanying the song, the trio released a simple video that shows them in the studio alongside producers, writers, and musicians. They enlisted a bevy of Nashville’s biggest names on Ocean, including Sarah Buxton, Corey Crowder, Chris DeStefano, Hillary Lindsey, and more. The album will also feature a highly-anticipated collaboration with Little Big Town.
The release of “Boots” comes on the heels of buzzed about tracks, including the theatric “What If I Never Get Over You,” the bittersweet “Pictures,” and the album’s title track, the lush and melodic, “Ocean.” We are counting down the days until release day of Ocean, and we’re excited to add “Boots” to our playlist!
