Happy Labor Day! Remember, if you haven’t already put a good half-day’s work in, the commies are winning. And remember that not everybody ready to work has work to do.
Country music is often aspirational, promoting the cherished values of the people who listen to it. Cost of Livin’ looks at people at their best, a song about a man who just wants to work. Hard times notwithstanding, the value of work is too often lost on today’s working class Americans. Cost of Livin’ is a good reminder of the worth of a man ready to work, and the tragedy of a man like that stuck without it.
Cost of Livin’ is off Ronnie Dunn’s self-titled album.
I previously featured Cost of Livin’ in A Post-Election Reading List in the Age of Trump.
