Chris Janson is tipping his hat to the blue-collar working class of America in the brand new video for his latest single, “Waitin’ On 5.”

Janson took to the Highland Rim Speedway in Greenbrier, Tenn. for the socially distanced music video, which was directed by Sam Siske. The clip features Janson’s father, who fills his real-life role as an auto body painter, as well as his father-in-law.

“I have so much respect for the hardworking men and women in this country,” Janson said. “I am proud to count members of my own family, like my dad and father-in-law, among them. This song and the video are my way of honoring what they and so many others do every day – and encouraging them to have a little fun when the job is done!”
