After a pretty much perfect debut single, Randy Houser returns with the opening song from his debut album. If he channeled Ronnie Dunn on “Anything Goes”, he sounds a lot closer to Trace Adkins on this twangy rocker.
Houser’s enthusiastic performance helps to elevate the rather ordinary material, but there’s been such a glut of “country and proud of it” songs lately. “Boots On” may be one of the better ones, but they haven’t been collectively good in the first place. There are far better tracks on Houser’s album.
