After taking some time away from country music to concentrate on her clothing line, hair care line and book, along with taking care of her new baby boy, Jessie James Decker surprised fans with a brand new single, “Boots.”
Earlier this week, Decker subtly teased fans by posting a seven second clip to instagram of her shoot with JustFab for their upcoming collaborative clothing line, captioned, “JJD x @justfabonline …. get ready (ps yes this is a new song. Out soon)” Just hours before the song’s release, Decker officially announced “Boots” by posting a thirty second clip of the single with it’s cover art and caption, “Tonight. new music droppin #boots (this is my new song it’s featured in my new @justfabonline commercial!!!)”
Co-written by Tofer Brown, “Boots” is an upbeat, fun and sassy anthem version of the idiom “walk a mile in their shoes.” Before judging someone, you must understand their experiences, challenges, thought processes, etc. Decker put her own womanly, country twist on it and sings in the chorus:
“Come on, tonight / I’m daring you to walk a mile in my boots / Bring it on, just try / I bet you couldn’t even strap ‘em up on right / You got your little friends / I hear ‘em talkin’ / But talking ain’t the same as walking a mile in my boots so come on”
In addition to the single, Decker wrote a new book titled “Just Jessie”, due out on October 2nd. It is a self-written guide to love, life, family and food. To celebrate the book’s release, the singer-songwriter will be going on a four-city book signing tour which will stop in Brooklyn at The BookMark Shoppe on October 3rd at 7pm. You can pre-order the book here.
“Boots” is now available everywhere you buy or stream music.
