A Thousand Horses' first single from their sophomore album finds them paying tribute to the hard working and playing American people.
If you're a 40-drinking, 40-working Living the dream Then you're just like me And I'm preachin' to the choir.
"'Preachin' to the Choir' is the working people's anthem," lead singer Michael Hobby told Rolling Stone. "It's about the people that give it 100 percent and are an all-in / all-out kind of crowd. They work hard, they love hard, and they play hard, and that's what the song really speaks to."
The song was written by Heather Morgan, Morgan Wallen, Brad Warren and Brett Warren. It's the first outside track A Thousand Horses have recorded, but Hobby said the song's message was impossible to resist.
"Brett sent it to me one night and said, 'This song fits you guys.' We listened to it, and as soon as the first lick came in, we were like, 'That is us.' It rang true to who we are in our upbringing," he recalled.
