Pardi’s “Dirt On My Boots”
“Dirt on My Boots” is the second single from Jon Pardi’s new album, California Sunrise. The track features a swaggering bass groove and R&B-influenced guitar riffs. The song features a banjo, which adds a country flavor to the track.
This song peaked at number two on the Country Airplay chart, number 37 on the Hot 100, and landed on the VEVO Presents list for 2017. The song has since been certified four times platinum by the RIAA and has sold more than 695,000 copies in the United States. It also reached number one on the Canadian Country chart and earned a Gold certification from Music Canada.
The song’s lyrical content is not very good. It tries to appeal to both country and city listeners, but the words do not mesh well with Pardi’s voice. The lyrics are mediocre, and it doesn’t help that it was co-written by Rhett Akins and Ashley Gorley. This song is basically about a guy trying to pick up a girl. It is similar to many other pop country songs.
Nancy Sinatra’s “These Boots Are Made for Walking”
“These Boots Are Made for Walking” is a classic song recorded by Nancy Sinatra in 1966. She was one of the most popular singers of that decade. The song’s sultry melody was reminiscent of the sound of a cowboy boot. The track was a chart-topping hit in the UK. The song was a rebuke to the sexual politics of the previous hit, “Lightnin’ Strikes,” but fit within the early ’60s pop mold. Despite this, it is one of Sinatra’s best-known songs.
The song was written by Lee Hazlewood. It was a hit in the UK and US. Hazlewood directed engineer Eddie Brackett to add light reverb to the track. As a result, “These Boots Are Made For Walking” became one of the most popular songs of all time.
