Bury Me in My Boots

Album: Bury Me in My Boots (2016)
  • The title track of Cadillac Three's debut album, "Bury Me in My Boots" was inspired by frontman Jaren Johnston's fear of dying young. "I was trying to make it past 27," he told Taste of Country. "Then I was trying to make it past 33 because Keith Whitley died at 33. We're doing pretty good."
  • The track was penned by the trio about how a hard living lifestyle isn't great for their loved ones. "The idea of the song was like... it's scary," Johnston said. "It's scary going, 'Baby I love you, but I've chose this path - whether it's drinking or drug dealing or whatever it is. That's kind of what that mindset was. 'And you can't go with me.'"
