The singer born in Vidalia, Georgia, grew up being inspired by a plethora of classic country artists such as Merle Haggard and Sammy Kershaw with a heavy influence from Elvis Presley. Every one of these artist’s special touch and sound is showcased throughout “Daddy’s Boots.” The classic country sound is prevalent all throughout the song, something that is not heard all too often nowadays.
The song was written with JC Andersen and Jarrett Hartness along with Dukes, who stated that they “knew we had something special.” Special is definitely a word to describe this song. Detailing memories of Dukes wearing his Dad’s boots while his Dad chased him down the hall laughing to feeling six-feet tall in those boots when he was six years old, this song is bound to make you want to hug your Dad tight and tell him how much you love him.
With an infectious hook of “One day I hope I’m half the man that stood in Daddy’s boots,” this song quickly gets in your head in a good way. Dukes states that his Dad is a big inspiration, and he has “always been there supporting my brother and I in everything we do,” a statement that is shown throughout the song.
Dukes has previously opened up for some big names, namely Vince Gill, Charlie Daniels, Luke Combs, Justin Moore, Shenandoah, and several others throughout his career, and has also played the famous Bluebird Cafe twice.
With this heartfelt single and some more along the way, Dukes has proven that he is a name to watch out for in the near future. In the meantime, “Daddy’s Boots” is available on all streaming platforms.
