Karen,What motivated Slaid to write/perform "Working Stiff"? It hits home for a schlep like me. (Sad as that is) It's great when a song makes you THINK of whiskey without referencing whiskey...
Melvern Taylor wrote the song "Working Stiff". Slaid saw Melvern perform it and really liked it, so he decided to record it on his album of all covers of friends songs "Unsung".
