Music City glory doesn’t come without a whole lot of gross and greasy. That’s the lesson to be learned from this list of the worst pre-fame jobs in country music. From fast food fry cook to the guy who empties toilets on house boats, some of Nashville’s finest have paid their dues, and then some, to get where they are today.

On this Worst Pre-Fame Jobs list, you’ll learn what Reba McEntire, Blake Shelton, Dierks Bentley and more did before they released their first singles. You can also find out what stars in the world of hard rock, television and movies, alt-rock, classic rock and pop music did before making it big by checking out lists on Loudwire, ScreenCrush, Diffuser, Ultimate Classic Rock and PopCrush. If you’re worst job is as bad as some of these, we salute you.
