A bad day on tour is nothing compared to what Dierks Bentley had to put up with at a former job. The ‘Home’ singer cleaned out toilets from houseboats that had been on the water — and they sometimes had gone a week between cleanings. The antiquated equipment was prone to malfunction, and (gulp) backfire. “I tried to outrun the rain,” he says of one specific stormy morning. “Got nailed.” Few country artists can compete with that story, but as you’ll see if you keep clicking, there are some that try.

Next: Reba McEntire
