“Whose Bed have your Boots been Under?” by Shania Twain

“Better in Boots” by Tyler Farr
This Tyler Farr chart-topper is a surefire hit, as it’s an anthem celebrating the power of boots on a long night out. Lyrics that reference boots: “Everything looks better in boots, If you don’t believe, I’ve just one proof, She had them ol’ blue jeans on, Lookin’ hotter than a smoke alarm, Yeah, the beauty of that pair of jeans, Could make a preacher cuss and scream, Nothin’ looks better in boots than a pretty girl’s jeans.”
“Boots On” by Randy Houser
Randy Houser’s top 10 single was originally written for Kenny Chesney. This single calls for a celebration and makes you feel like you’re at the bar.

“Go-Go Boots” by Drive-By Truckers
This classic Drive-By Trucker single is based around a character in a honky-tonk bar with a duffel bag full of Go-Go boots. It tells a story of a rough and dangerous past, where life must call for tough-guy behavior to survive. “You stumble up to the mic, You stick your hand deep in a bag And pull out your go-go boots, And the ladies all scream and holler, You know you can’t lose, ‘Cause there aint nothin’ better, Than a sharp dressed man in go-go boots.”
“These Boots Are Made for Walkin’” by Nancy Sinatra
Probably the most famous song about boots, this 1960s sassy single by Nancy Sinatra pokes fun at cheating men, deserving of a red-bottomed shoe to the face. It’s an anthem of liberation, women’s power, and revenge! While 40-50% of marriages end in divorce, Nancy was going to walk out on her man in style. “These boots are made for walking, and that’s just what they’ll do; one of these days these boots are gonna walk, All over you.”
