In the video for “Silver Cowboy Boots”, Anna Shoemaker prances around a motel room trying to forget about the person that broke her heart.  While some of these methods of mind-erasure involve food and drinks, Shoemaker finds that the best way to rid your mind of an unwanted person is by donning a fresh pair of cowboy boots.  So, she does.  The track itself, which features Invisible Will, is essentially a love story to the boots.  The video is the story of how boots are unable to bring you down and put you in a bad place, unlike the relationship she just got out of.  Still, there are moments of vulnerability where Shoemaker admits that it isn’t that simple to get somebody off your mind.  In any case, “Silver Cowboy Boots” can serve as a reminder to us all that sometimes all it takes is a little something simple, like cowboy boots, to clear your mind.

Shoemaker says of the inspiration behind the track:

I wrote this song after my ex and I broke up for the second time. He seemed to be doing fine and I was still heartbroken. I was in the studio sad, hungover, and wearing these insane silver Fendi cowboy boots I had bought myself and was just like, you know what, maybe this is fine?
