Flashback: Huey Lewis, Garth Brooks Tackle ‘Workin’ for a Livin”

As Huey Lewis and the News announce a new album, we look back at his 2007 collab with the country star

'Let It Bleed': Why the Stones' Nastiest Masterpiece Feels Right on Time “Garth called me and said, ‘How ‘bout it? I said, ‘Anytime, anywhere, you name it,’” Lewis recalls in a behind-the-scenes interview on the set of the music video, shot by director Jon Small at the Atlanta Motor Speedway. (Fun fact: Years before he was elected U.S. president, Georgia resident Jimmy Carter worked as a ticket-taker at the venue). The high-octane clip features 10 NASCAR vehicles appearing to whiz past the two performers on the racetrack at speeds of up to 180 miles per hour, with Lewis joking, “If one of us gets killed in the shoot it’ll be really good for the other guy.” Popular on Rolling Stone In reality, the two entertainers — and the cars’ drivers — were never in any danger as technology was used to mix the shots together. A later shot, however, with the cars trained to stop well behind both singers, accelerated the drama when two vehicles nearly collided not far from where Lewis and Brooks were standing. Still, with Atlanta’s temperature hovering around 104 degrees, the track hitting 126 degrees, and temps inside the vehicles even higher than that, Brooks and Lewis had to sit inside the director’s rented air-conditioned Cadillac to keep their makeup from melting. Ever the daredevil, Brooks ran the car around the racetrack a few times then switched places so Lewis could take a few laps, at an even higher speed. Released in December 2007, on the heels of Brooks’ nine-show concert series in Kansas City in early November, the duet version of “Workin’ for a Livin’” would peak at Number 19, taking it one spot higher than the highest position the Lewis original had achieved on Billboard’s Top Tracks (now Mainstream Rock) survey in 1982. For Brooks, it was his highest-charted single for a decade, until 2017’s “Ask Me How I Know” from the Gunslinger Read more: Rolling Stone
