Boot Americana and Hat Americana

In my Zach Bryan review I asserted that modern “Americana” artists can be classified along a spectrum of “Boots” to “Hats”, similar to the egg punk / chain punk dichotomy. Thought it might be fun to continue the fun here, and see how many artists we can classify this way before the system breaks down.
1Gillian Welch
Boots No. 1: The Official Revival Bootleg

“Boot Americana lies close to the earth — it’s a barroom floor sticky with alcohol and blood and the dust kicked up during a night of revelry. It’s stepping onto a lifted truck; it’s flipping up the kickstand on your motorcycle. It’s a hard-drinking, hard-smoking, hard-headed tale of a hard-living hard-day’s-work. Boot Americana is for the Steve Earles and Gillian Welchs of the world”
2Steve Earle

Hat Americana with slight Boot tendencies
5Honey Harper

“Hat Americana, though? Hat Americana is the head in the clouds. Hat Americana is eyeshadow and sequins; it is the ornery fringes and cashmere tassels on a pink and white cowboy duster. It is wistful crooning delivered with a wink and a sigh by someone too emotionally aware for the haircut they sport. Hat Americana is for the Honey Harpers and Orville Pecks.”
6Sturgill Simpson

Suggested by Arse. Hat with a boot voice.
