The new track and video are the next step in Greyson’s evolution as an artist and what’s to come for him in 2020.
Says Greyson, “’Boots’ at its core, is a narrative addressing pop culture’s current usage of Western imagery. When I was writing the song, I found myself imagining what Johnny Cash would be like if he were around and making music in 2019. I thought about what he would wear, how he would act, and what he would write about. My conclusion was that it all would look and feel considerably different than these stars wearing cowboy hats these days. Being from Oklahoma, I understand that being ‘Western’ isn’t all about the style, it’s about an attitude, an obsessive loyalty and an unwavering wildness. ‘Boots’ is truly just an observation of what I see in pop culture currently, and what I think about it.”
“Boots” arrives on the heels of the U.S. leg of Greyson’s portraits World Tour. Having played to fans all across Asia, Berlin, Dublin, London, Amsterdam and more, the North American run includes stops in New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, Toronto, Los Angeles and more. Greyson has also partnered with The Ally Coalition for the U.S. tour, and at each show, the organization will introduce attendees to a charity in their respective communities that is in need of support.
