The western boot has gone in and out of style, but it remains a constant in rock & roll. Today, Americana bands like Drive-By Truckers are the primary musicians wearing cowboy boots.

Where else could I see Bob Dylan, Neil Young, and Derek and the Dominos alongside Roger Miller and Merle Haggard? The (JOHNNY CASH TV) show made me feel that having long hair and wearing cowboy boots in Texas wasn't so weird after all.
