Trailer Choir have tapped into their inner comedian and teamed up with director John Ritchie to create a series of comedy vignettes for YouTube. The storyline follows the hijinks of an up and coming country band, and the oftentimes hilarious situations they find themselves in, just trying to make it in the music business. The first vignette posted last week, and left the viewer with a little bit of a cliffhanger. The second posted October 19th, and the third will post the following week.
“There was a time when country artists also used to be the biggest television stars around, you know, like Buck Owens on Hee Haw and The Johnny Cash Show and Barbara Mandrell and The Mandrell Sisters,” said Ritchie. “Trailer Choir reminded me of the type of band that has that potential. Placing these videos on an outlet like YouTube is a great way to showcase something fun like these clips.”
While the band continues its hard driving tour schedule and promoting both the recently released single “Shakin’ That Tailgate” and CD Tailgate, their ability to diversify and reach an audience on a number of levels is exactly what the label expects from the hard-working trio.
“Trailer Choir continues to cross-pollinate their unique blend of music, fun and funny into yet another platform that works for them, extending their reach yet again,” said Show Dog – Universal Music’s George Nunes.
Ritchie is a Nashville-based writer (GAC’s Top 20, MTV Movie Awards) who recently started Gold Sounds Entertainment, a company that produces music oriented content for television and the web, including the country music news blog Carl’s Country Club.
