Jesse Daniel Pens New Song For Upcoming Dust Slay Netflix Comedy Special, Workin’ Man (Out 1/16/24), Announces Countin’ The Miles Tour

Listen to “Workin’ Hard (Day and Night)” everywhere today and watch the lyric video on YouTube

Rising star comedian, Dusty Slay, knew exactly who to ask for a new song that captures the theme of Slay’s new Netflix comedy special, Workin’ Man (premiering January 16). He turned to Jesse Daniel who happens to be one of the hardest working performers in Country Music to bring the story to music. “My comedian friend Dusty Slay reached out one day and asked me to write a song for his upcoming Netflix special. Dusty is a workin’ man’s comic (hence the name of his special) so Jodi and I started writing without hesitation. We incorporated some things that were directly inspired by Dusty and his life, while pulling from our own experience. Dusty makes comedy for everyday, workin’ people and those are the same people I make country music for. I’m honored to have my song on his first Netflix special.” Fans can preview the Netflix special and hear the new song on Slay’s Youtube page.

Daniel worked with Neighborhoods Apart to create a lyric video that captures the blue collar aesthetic of the tune. “This video captures the spirit of the worker. I think it goes perfectly with the message of the song,” Daniel explains. Check out the full video HERE.

Daniel has also announced the Countin’ The Miles tour that will take him and the band all over the Western US and Midwest (full list of dates below). Tickets go on sale today over at . Kentucky singer/songwriter Brit Taylor and Indiana Country rocker Alex Williams will split support duties on the Countin’ The Miles Tour.

Jesse Daniel has been a well-respected name within traditional country music fans for years. Known for his relentless work ethic, roaring live shows and true to life songwriting, he has earned his place among the heavy hitters of today’s industry. The California native is blazing the trail for a new wave of traditional artists, bringing his kind of country music to stages all over the world. With three full length studio records and a newly released live album, he continues to rival the greats of the genre with his level of creative output. While rooted in the tradition of his Bakersfield heroes like Merle Haggard and Buck Owens, Daniel’s sound is uniquely his own.
