This is Colt Miller. Just about everyone you’d ever meet in Lubbock music will tell you just how influential and significant his guitar playing and song composition have been. With Thrift Store Cowboys, you had a band that sounded more like West Texas than just about anyone ever. You may also know Miller because of his Cobra Rock Boots.  Today would be the Thrift Store Cowboy guitarist boot maker’s birthday. #coltmiller #thriftstorecowboys #cobrarockboots #lubbock #lubbockmusic #texasmusic #lightfighte #laylow
