When the clock seems to be slowing down by the minute and you're not even halfway through the work week, here's a playlist that will "Kick the Dust Up" and get you through the work day.

It's one of country music's favorite themes, with legends like Tennessee Ernie Ford and Dolly Parton crooning about the daily grind. Up-and-comers like Jon Pardi and Midland are also ready to punch the clock and head "East Bound and Down" to stay "Up All Night" for the weekend.

Whether you're a long-hauler on the highway or a short-trader on Wall Street, this mix will help the work hours fly by, or transport you to "Some Beach" to escape it all. Press play below on The Boot's workday Spotify playlist for hours of worker's compensation. We got you!
