The Cadillac Three's “Hard Out Here For A Country Boy” features country music stars Chris Janson and Travis Tritt! Check it out here.

The Cadillac Three‘s “Hard Out Here For A Country Boy” features Chris Janson and Travis Tritt. The song is from their upcoming album Country Fuzz, out February 7th. Singer-guitarist Jaren Johnston and drummer Neil Mason wrote the track with Jeremy Stover while out on the road.

“We were playing some tour dates with Travis Tritt and The Charlie Daniels Band when ‘Hard Out Here For A Country Boy’ was written. He was on the bus when we were playing through some songs and with his big signature twang belted out the line. I grew up listening to Travis, and he’s a big reason I sing the way I do — that gritty twang thing. We knew he had to be on the song,” shared Jaren.

Neil adds, “This song was kind of a jumping off point for the record and one of the first we cut. We’ve all been buddies for years and Chris heard the song playing in the background during a call with Jaren. It was cool that he quickly wanted to be a part of it and cut the vocal the next day.”

“Hard Out Here For A Country Boy” Lyrics

Well, it’s hard out here for a country boy
Chugging that cold beer, loving that hot girl
Living that slow life in a real fast world
Gonna be a long day but I’ll get through it
It’s a hell of a job but somebody gotta do it
It’s hard out here for a country boy

Woo-wee, yeah it’s hard out here
Turn four Talladega second time this year
Lifting this koozie’s got my arm tired
Sweating and getting this old boy wired
NASCAR, bikini tan lines
Coppertone shoulders, sunshine
It’s touch for a red, white, and blue collared guy

Well, it’s hard out here for a country boy (hell yeah)
Chugging that cold beer, loving that hot girl
Living that slow life in a real fast world
It’s hard out here for a country boy (hell yeah)
Riding them Goodyears, reeling them big cats
Wearing this red neck like an old ball cap
Gonna be a long day but I’ll get through it
It’s a hell of a job but somebody gotta do it
It’s hard out here for a country boy

Naw, sir, we ain’t worried about it
When it comes to fun we know our way around it, man
We smoking that smoke on the back porch swing
While the hound dog chews on a chicken wing

It’s hard out here for a country boy (hell yeah)
Chugging that cold beer, loving that hot girl
Living that slow life in a real fast world
It’s hard out here for a country boy (hell yeah)
Riding them Goodyears, reeling them big cats
Wearing this red neck like an old ball cap
Gonna be a long day but I’ll get through it
It’s a hell of a job but somebody gotta do it
It’s hard out here for a country boy

Well, it’s hard out here for a country boy
