Joe Nichols, Easton Corbinand Phil Vassar are stepping out of the spotlight – at least for a day. The three country stars will appear on the next episode of GAC’s Day Jobs, airing Sunday, November 6 at 8/7 CT. The show follows country stars as they return to the roles they held before getting their big break. As they see if they still have what it takes to put in a day’s work, they also realize just how much those first jobs shaped their lives today.
Before he was singing about tequila and “Brokenheartsville,” Joe Nichols was running a forklift at the 500,000 square-foot headquarters of OHL. While Joe dreamed of a life far from the warehouse he reported to every day, the job was a means of survival. On Day Jobs, he will get behind the wheel of a forklift and try to keep up with his co-worker, John. Joe returns to the warehouse expecting to be bored, but finds he has more in common with John than just working the same shift.
For Easton Corbin, Ace Hardware was both the neighborhood hardware store and the source of his paycheck. Only a year and a half ago, Easton was helping customers with their home improvement projects and mixing paint, dreaming of making it as a country artist. While the Ace Hardware employees were like family to Easton after he first moved to town, they don’t cut him any slack upon his return, leaving him to clean the store’s bathrooms.
Phil Vassar had a plan B when he moved to Nashville. Having learned the restaurant business from his father, Phil opened his own restaurant while also working to make it in Music City. On this episode of Day Jobs, he’ll work with Sean, a man whose dream was to own his own restaurant. Now that dream has been threatened by both Nashville’s historic flooding in May of 2010 and today’s economy.
