Hold On To That Day Job
Country Stars Go Back To Work On New GAC Series
September 12, 2011 at 7:06 AM (PT)
GAC-TV is presenting an original new series, premiering on SUNDAY, OCTOBER 2nd at 8p (ET), called “DAY JOBS.” Many of today’s Country stars will step back in time and put in a full day’s work at the job that they did before they made it in music.
Each one-hour episode will follow three stars as they work a shift in a variety of jobs from offshore oil rig roughneck, cattle rancher, women’s shoe salesman, pilot and waitress. Before SHOW DOG-UNIVERSAL MUSIC artist TRACE ADKINS could return to his former job as a roughneck on an offshore oil rig, he had to put in a day of safety training while label-mate JOE NICHOLS had to become certified to drive a forklift before spending a day loading pallets and filling orders in a warehouse.
“I’ve told lots of people I’m not defined by what I do now,” said ADKINS. “’Roughneck’ defines me better than anything else does. I’ve been called lots of things in my life but one of the things I’m proudest of is just that I was called a good hand.”
“Country music has long epitomized the working man and it was great to see so many stars wanting to tell their stories and revisit their early jobs alongside the hard working people doing those jobs today,” said GAC Pres. ED HARDY. “Viewers will get rare insight -- straight from the stars themselves -- about an important part of these artists’ lives.”
Other stars participating include CHRIS YOUNG, JOSH KELLEY, EDDIE MONTGOMERY, DARRYL WORLEY, PHIL VASSAR, GARY ALLAN, TROY GENTRY, CLAY WALKER, and many more.
