Having turned their acappella, on-the-job serenades into a national recording career, The Singing Contractors have assembled Hard Workin’ Man, a collection of country classics.
“We are so excited about this new record,” stated Aaron Gray. “From the beginning of this recording process we wanted this album to connect with the everyday, hard workin’ man and woman.” “Working as contractors while getting to sing and perform, we can relate to how many of our listeners feel day in and day out,” added Josh Arnett. “We selected these songs with the hope they will mean as much to listeners as they have meant to us.”
The Singing Contractors teamed up with veteran producer Michael Sykes to create Hard Workin’ Man. Showcasing the harmonies that have garnered national TV appearances and avid fans, the singing sensations put their unique twiston country music classics such as “Back Home Again,” “Forever and Ever Amen” and other songs that inspired them to be the hard-working men and acclaimed talents they are today. Those signature renditions include a guest vocal from country music icon Merle Haggard on their rendition of “That’s the Way Love Goes.”
Filmed at the Gaither Music Studio and directed by Doug Stuckey, the DVD and TV special feature performances from The Singing Contractors and conversations with host/ singer/songwriter Woody Wright about the history and inspiration behind Hard Workin’ Man. Gospel music legend Bill Gaither also makes a special appearance as he joins The Singing Contractors and Wright for a memorable rendition of “He Touched Me.”
