In honor of the men and women that work hard every day, The Southern Coterie compiled a list featuring some of the best songs about working people. It is by no means a complete list… what started out as a top 10 list quickly became our top 20 list!

This Labor Day, we celebrate you – the American worker – and your economic contributions, social achievements and good old American work ethic. Could there be a better reason for a holiday?

Check out our list, watch a few videos and feel free to share your favorites with us. It just might make our 2013 Labor Day list. Kick back, relax and enjoy your much deserved day off and remember… Thanksgiving is not that far away!
