Honky Tonk Boots is an album released in 2006 by American country music artist Sammy Kershaw. His only release for the Category 5 Records album, it was also his first studio release since 2003's I Want My Money Back. The album's lead-off single, "Tennessee Girl", peaked at number 43 on the Billboard country charts in 2006. Honky Tonk Boots also reunited him with producers Buddy Cannon and Norro Wilson, who co-produced his first four albums.

Three cover songs are included on this album. "Baby's Got Her Blue Jeans On", the second and final single, is a cover of Mel McDaniel's Number One hit from his 1984 album Let It Roll. Kershaw's rendition failed to chart. "Evangeline" was previously a number 51-peaking single for Chad Brock in 1998 from his self-titled debut, which Cannon and Wilson also produced. "The Battle" was previously recorded by George Jones for his 1976 album of the same title. The single peaked at number 14.

Jeffrey B. Remz of Country Standard Time gave the album a positive review, comparing Kershaw's vocals favorably to George Jones and saying that "The Louisiana native has done his part in coming through with a meaty performance."[1]
