A lot of my fans, and a lot of country music fans, they still wear boots.
It never mattered to me that people in school didn’t think that country music was cool, and they made fun of me for it – though it did matter to me that I was not wearing the clothes that everybody was wearing at that moment.

My mom couldn’t afford dance shoes, so she put me in these old cowboy boots with a hard bottom so I could get some sound out. I used them for seven months. When I finally got real tap shoes, I was nervous. I kept moving my feet, thinking, ‘Oh, so this is how it’s supposed to sound.’
I’ve gone from wearing jeans and cowboy boots to wearing miniskirts and gold tassels and high heels. I’m sure I’m not going to dress that way forever. It’s going to change again and again.
