For Country Musician Jon Wolfe, His Boots Are Merely A Conversation Starter

Jon Wolfe is a country singer and songwriter from Austin.

He says wearing boots can put you in a certain state of mind.

“There’s really kind of a deep connection that can get formed with the fit of the boot, the story behind the boot, and it definitely puts you in a different character,” he says.

One little secret of country music performers, he says, is that they’ll wear sneakers when they travel, and boots onstage. But Willie Nelson bucks that trend; he’s been known to wear sneakers onstage!

Wolfe has been touring for a decade, and released two albums last year: one live at Gruene Hall, in Gruene, Texas; the other, a five-song EP. Wolfe also has a new tequila brand, Juan Lobo Tequila.

“I’ve kind of bit of more than I can chew over the past couple years.”
