Following a lyric video and success on Sirius XM’s The Highway, Lee Brice premiered a music video for his current single “Drinking Class.” As we previously noted in our article about the lyric video, the track celebrates blue-collar workers who spend long laborious days on the job, finding solace at a bar after their shifts.
In perfect sync with the lyrics to the song, the video showcases the men and women who are up to their elbows in grease, relying on their elbow grease, performing manual labor in the workforce. Throughout the three minute and a half minute production, we see a variety of workers, men and women, “busting [their] backs” while on the clock, but finding the time to come together, let loose, and shake the week off as a class of individuals who can empathize with this way of life.
Without this group of people, this “drinking class,” we would be devoid of many of the necessary things in our lives, as these are the workers who exhaust themselves physically to build and maintain that which is relied on by the masses. Of course they deserve to take a load off and enjoy some downtime, and this music video (as well as the lyrics of the song) shows that Lee Brice understands and respects this lifestyle.
“Drinking class” is a tremendous ode to the under-appreciated blue-collar workforce with lyrics such as “I’m a member of a blue collar crowd, they can never, nah they can’t keep us down. If you gotta, gotta label me, label me proud.” Raise a glass in honor of the “drinking class” today, and watch Lee’s music video tribute below.
