|Continuing to stay true to his roots and write about what he knows, former saddle bronc athlete-turned-country artist Chancey Williams releases his drum-driven ode to the blue collar worker (and where that worker puts their money after-hours), “Paycheck Down” – available today on all digital platforms. The boot-stomping barn-burner, which follows his album release One of These Days (3/28), was co-written by Williams with Brice Long, and produced by Trent Wilmon. Fans got a first listen of the tune yesterday (5/25) when it premiered exclusively with The Boot, who called it a “jaunty country shuffler” that “captures the pure joy that comes with receiving one’s paycheck and readying for a weekend of celebrations – cowboy style, of course.” |

“I love this song. It was the first song I ever wrote with my friend Brice Long. This is a young workin’ man’s tune,” Williams told The Boot. “The kid in the song is a ranch worker, but really it applies to any kind of blue collar hard work. Reminds me of when you’re young and you just work all week for that paycheck, and then blow it on the weekend, figuring, “I’ll worry about next week, next week. Haha.”
