Blackboot Family Band: “Goodbye Whiskey”

By: Jack Anderson

Folk and country have both maintained an air of openness, unification, and hospitality since their origins, so it’s not all that farfetched to claim a “family” even when nobody’s sharing surnames. Austin six-piece Blackboot Family Band is no exception, whose internal bonds have only grown stronger since 2016.
