“The rowdy and joyous country-blues track is all about looking forward to cashing in and easing your mind, if only for a few days or one great night on the town,” Wide Open Country states about song.

“The reason the whole record is named after the song is because it’s almost like a bigger thing,” The Rev. Peyton explains. “It’s not just about payday at the end of the week. It’s waiting on that real payday to come. So that’s what it is for me. And that’s what the song is kind of about, too.”

The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band are the world’s greatest practitioners of classic country-blues, featuring the foremost finger-picking steel guitar player in the Rev, and the sensational rhythm and vocal accompaniment of Washboard Breezy, Rev’s wife of 15 years, who has played by his side since the band’s inception and is known for setting her washboard on fire, Jimi Hendrix-style, as part of the group’s dynamic live performances.

A devotee of what he calls “front porch blues” since he was 12 years old, Rev and the band have followed their lifetime immersion in and devotion to this music with pilgrimages to its birthplace of Clarksdale, MI, and the Chess Studios in Chicago. A student of Charlie PattonRobert JohnsonFurry LewisBukka White and Mississippi John Hurt, Rev’s style has been honed through studying with the late David “Honeyboy” EdwardsRobert Belfour and T-Model Ford.

Rev is even a bit of a YouTube star, featured in a pair of viral videos, one that features him playing (and shooting) a guitar made from a 12-gauge shotgun, the other in which he chops wood with one fashioned out of an axe.

With a European tour on the horizon, the band have recently announced a new run of headline dates for the fall including stops in Chicago, New Orleans, Washington D.C., Houston, New York City and more. See full list of dates below.
