Show Dog- Universal Music will release Trailer Choir’s debut CD, Tailgate, on July 6, 2010. The group’s first full length CD features its upcoming new single release, “Shakin’ That Tailgate,” a song they premiered on the recent CMT Music Awards. Fans of their signature song, “Rockin’ the Beer Gut,” won’t be disappointed as that song as well as “Last Man Standing” and “Off the Hillbilly Hook,” and six new tracks make up Tailgate. Produced by Toby Keith and Mark Wright, the CD continues with the feel good type of music Trailer Choir has come to be known for and what band member Butter calls “cold beer country.”
“If ever there was a band that exemplified summer parties and good times, it’s Trailer Choir,” said George Nunes, the label’s GM. “This band has their own unique sound and attitude and our goal was to capture what they do in their live shows on record. It’s almost like capturing lightning in a bottle—Crystal, Big Vinny and Butter are all about showing their fans a good time, taking them away from everyday life, if only for an hour. Tailgate is the kind of CD that can do that.”
Trailer Choir will spend release week doing what they do best—taking their music to the people. On release day, they will perform their new single on the nationally syndicated morning show The Daily Buzz and then hit the road for a series of performances and in-store appearances. First stop is an in-store at Wal-Mart in Des Moines, Iowa (1001 73rd Street, Windsor Heights, IA.) on Thursday July 8th and then the Wal-Mart in Cedar Rapids, Iowa (3601 29th Ave SW, Cedar Rapids, IA) on Friday July 9th. Each in-store begins at 5:00 pm local time. Trailer Choir will close out release week on Saturday July 10th with a concert at the Redwood Fair in Redwood Falls, MN.
Over the course of the next few weeks, the band will be profiled in Country Weekly and the new People Country special. Trailer Choir will be GAC’s Artist of the Month for July. They will also be featured on GAC’s On The Streets and CMT Insider and Top 20.
