Flying back from New Orleans, Billy sat next to a long-haul truck driver who would fly into Portland and pickup a brand new Daimler truck and then drive it to its destination across country. His job kept him so busy that he rarely had time to be home, was constantly on the road, and even missed Christmas with his family. He was based in Florida, but flew to Portland to pick up the trucks and drive them, working many long hours to support his family. His story inspired Billy to write the song .
"Workin'" captures the pathos of life in America today, where too many have to work long hours, often at more than one job, to make ends meet; it is a tribute to the hard-working man and woman in America today. - Billy Ray Deiz
"Workin'" is one of Billy Ray's most popular songs where it is consistently ranks high on the Independent Country Music Charts in Oregon and around the U.S.
