It's Labor Day, a day we recognize the hard working men and women that drive the economic engine of this country. Today's country music superstars lead glamorous and fabulously wealthy lives but that wasn't always the case for most of them. Check out a few of the worst jobs some country stars say they had before finding success in their music.

CMT checked out a few of our favorites.

Luke Bryan: "I had to clean out a grain bin elevator that had water in it. All the corn had mildewed and soured, so I had to spend a whole week dumping rotten corn out of a big grain thing, and it took about a week for the smell to get out of my body.
Kellie Pickler: "Working in fast food. ... I worked at Sonic, and it was a great job for when I was in school. I think everyone should experience what it's like to work in the food industry where you serve other people.
Joe Nichols: "Selling steaks door to door. I sold steaks for one day like those guys that ride around in the freezer truck selling meat to all the 'neighbors.' I tried to sell steaks, but I'm a terrible salesman because I'm really honest, and they saw it in my face. I was terrible and miserable.
Chris Young: "The worst job I've ever had was an HVAC [heating, ventilation and air conditioning] job in a church. I came home so tired. I was using a cutting torch every day and got so dirty. I had to come home and strip on my back deck because I was so dirty."
