  • Lyrics
  • This tribute to the different types of working people who make up the United States fits perfectly on Brad Paisley's Moonshine in the Trunk album. "You know that feeling you get in the middle of the week of 'I can't do anything right' or 'It's not going my way?' But every week ends with a Friday, and that's where we excel, I think, at country music," the singer explained. "I see people at the end of long weeks. That's when I have my therapy session with them. I stand there, looking out at them, and they're like, 'Can you help erase what my boss said to me on Wednesday?' That's our job. And it flavored a lot of the record that way."
  • Paisley's 2014-15 Country Nation World Tour took its name from this patriotic tune.
  • The video for the song was directed by Jeff Venable and celebrates the blue-collar spirit and America's love of sports. The clip features dozens of mascots from college football teams across the nation with cuts to performance shots of Paisley at Vanderbilt University's football stadium.
