In honor of Labor Day, put together a list of country stars and the terrible jobs they had before they were stars -

1.  Dierks Bentley worked at Arizona's Lake Powell cleaning out 250-gallon portable toilets from rental houseboats.

2.  Johnny Cash picked cotton on his family farm when he was eight years old.

3.  Trace Adkins had his forehead busted open by a snapped cable when he worked in the oil fields.

4.  Reba McEntire helped her dad turn bulls into steers, if you know what I mean, as a six-year-old working at her family's ranch.

5.  Phillip Sweet of Little Big Town cleaned bathrooms at a Nashville mall.

6.  Joe Nichols sold frozen meat out of the back of a truck.

7.  Steve Earle worked at a car wash in Houston, Texas.

8.  Faith Hill and Martina McBride sold T-shirts and merchandise at concerts and events.

9.  Eric Church worked the midnight shift at a home shopping channel.

10.  Kellie Pickler was a roller skating carhop at a Sonic drive-thru.

My first job was to dress like a bunny rabbit and teach little kids how to roller skate.  It had it's challenges, but I have good memories from it!

What was your first job?
