Kyle Park and his rowdy friends aren’t afraid to get a little dirt under their fingernails in his “Rednecks With Paychecks” video. The Texas-based country artist knows how to show his fans a good time, and that’s evident in the clip, which is premiering exclusively via Taste of Country.
The “Rednecks With Paychecks” video was filmed in St. Hedwig, Texas, just outside of San Antonio, and in fact, part of the shoot took place at an actual place called Rednecks With Paychecks Offroad in St. Jo, Texas, a mud bog that also features music and other activities. Park worked with director Paul De La Cerda — who has previously worked extensively with Granger Smith — on the fun-filled video, which includes plenty of pretty country girls, jacked-up trucks, off-roading fun and country music.
Park co-wrote the song with Trent Willmon, whose credits include Little Big Town, Brad Paisley, Eric Church and more. The lyrics appeal to work-hard, play-hard, diehard blue collar Americans.
“We’re just rednecks with paychecks / We’re American made, bona fide blue collar / Working for a dollar, just hoot and holler for the weekend / With some good friends / We’re gonna blow a little dough, do a little livin’ / ‘Cause you can’t take it with you up to redneck heaven,” Park sings in the chorus.
“This is a song for the boys (and girls) who love their toys — jet skis, RVs, jacked-up pickups, huge BBQ pits, etc. Anything with four wheels, a warning label, a throttle or an outboard motor,” Park says. “We all know a few rednecks with paychecks!”
