Penned by Fleet alongside Rhett Akins and Will Bundy, “Workin’ Hard” paints the picture of accomplishments that can be accredited to the everyday grind – ranging from high school sports to sweat-inducing summer jobs and playing in honkytonks for tips – all of which the Tennessee native has experienced first-hand.
“The whole backstory of the song came from the way the three of us each grew up and developed into where I am now,” Fleet told The Tennessean. “It’s an honest, real-life story that’s true to my life. I was taught … if you want something you have to work for it. ‘Workin’ Hard’ was the perfect title track for my debut, because that’s been my life story.”
Released in November 2019, WORKIN’ HARD features eight tracks that find the sweet spot between Classic Country and the contemporary sounds of today – produced by ACM Producer of the Year nominee Joey Moi. Out of the gate, Fleet has racked up critical acclaim from American Songwriter, Billboard and Rolling Stone, while scoring coveted spots on artist to watch lists by Pandora, Sounds Like Nashville and Taste of Country.
Fleet’s latest release, “Where I Find God” continues to resonate with fans as a musical expression of gratitude and uplifting ode to finding peace in the higher power’s presence during life’s little moments. The track’s official music video – filmed on Lake Martin in Eclectic, AL, and featuring Fleet’s wife, Phebe, and now 10-month-old son, Waylon – has garnered 2.8 MILLION views and counting.

ABOUT LARRY FLEET: Blue-collar, Tennessee-native Larry Fleet grew up with a love of music sparked by an eclectic mix of influences spanning from Merle Haggard to Marvin Gaye. To make ends meet, Fleet spent tireless hours working construction jobs – never losing his dream of making music. A chance encounter with Jake Owen in 2017 led to a collaborative friendship and an opening slot on the road with Owen. Not long after, Fleet was sharing the stage with a living legend – and one of his heroes – Willie Nelson. Etching his mark in the Nashville songwriting community co-writing with esteemed tunesmiths including Rhett Akins, Brett James and Kendell Marvel, the hard-working family man (and father of newborn son, Waylon) is now poised for Country stardom with WORKIN’ HARD – his aptly-titled debut album on Big Loud Records. WORKIN’ HARD, produced by studio ace Joey Moi (Jake Owen, Morgan Wallen), is available now.https://www.countryschatter.com/2020/06/larry-fleet-shares-workin-hard-acoustic-video/New ReleasesPress Release"I Find God","Workin' Hard",facebook,Larry Fleet,Rhett Akins,The Tennessean,Will Bundy
