Marking the start of a new era of HARDY signatures, “BOOTS” is soaked in grunge production and simmering with backwoods attitude, unveiling yet another layer to his multifaceted artistry. “I’m so glad this song is out in the world,” shares HARDY. “‘BOOTS’ is a perfect representation of who I am as an artist. It’s a country lyric but it sounds like a rock and roll song.”
