explained to The Boot
how this cut about rural pride came to be: "This song starts off with a bluesy kind of lick that I grew up listening to, like a Robert Johnson kind of slide lick," he said.
"The idea of the song came from something my daddy used to say when I was kid," Houser continued: "He would tell me to make sure you go out with your boots on, which meant that if the good Lord was to take you out, go out with your boots on … go out kickin'! Go out doin' what you love — just make sure that's what you do in life."
"He passed away back in '97, and it inspired me to write this song," he concluded.
