We like to think of rock musicians as living a glamorous life: sleeping in until three in the afternoon, rolling into a club, and playing to huge crowds of adoring fans.

But the reality is, in today's world, it's really hard to make it as a musician and many have to take on day jobs. That's the case with musician Richard Buckner.

He's been making incredible, critically-acclaimed albums for more than a decade now, but you can still find him working odd jobs during the day. Richard Buckner took some time off today to talk about his new album, "Surrounded."
