Rising country music star Sophia Scott has released her new single ‘Boots, Jeans and Jesus’. Serving as a first taste of her highly anticipated debut album, this girls-night-out anthem is perfectly timed for the peak of summer.
‘Boots, Jeans and Jesus’ is a strong showcase of Scott’s heartfelt songwriting and her bold yet vulnerable vocal performance. The track delves into the tale of lust at first sight and the inner conflict that goes with it. With her signature sly humor, genuine honesty, and clever wordplay, the Nashville-based artist captures the thrill and danger of temptation with unforgettable originality. The pre-chorus line, “I’m cowboy-crazy, off the daisies, think of unladylike things,” reveals Scott’s playful yet relatable story.
Backed by sparse but powerful guitar riffs and driving melodies, the song exudes both swagger and soul. Playful elements like vibrant handclaps, brutal gang vocals and infectious carefree whistling add to the track’s undeniable charm. The result is a two-and-a-half-minute blast of unbridled joy, turning Scott Barstol’s confessional into a fiery, unapologetic declaration of freedom.
Co-written by Scott, Nolan Sippe and Sam Martinez (who produced the track), ‘Boots, Jeans and Jesus’ showcases Scott’s larger-than-life personality and boundless musicality. The song builds on the unique blend of powerhouse R&B, poppy West Coast rock and traditional country that Scott is known for. Her 2022 debut EP, ‘One of These Days’, exemplifies this unique sound. EPE also delves into complex topics like addiction, as revealed in the ballad ‘Side Effects’, which had a huge impact on TikTok, prompting users to share their own stories.
The EP also includes upbeat tracks such as the dance-ready anthem, which has garnered attention on Spotify’s New Music Nashville and Next From Nashville playlists. Prior to the release of “One of These Days,” Scott opened for the Jonas Brothers in Nashville, appeared on People magazine’s “artists to watch” list, and performed the EP’s title track, ‘The Kelly,’ on The Clarkson Show.
