Album Review

Tailgate, Trailer Choir's Toby Keith-produced debut, was a long time coming. Its first single, "Off the Hillbilly Hook" (the album's final track) was issued way back in 2008. It was followed by "In My Next 5 Beers," "Rollin' Through the Sunshine," and the infamous "Rockin' the Beer Gut," that were issued as previews in 2009. Apparently Show Dog, the band's label, and its distribution company, Universal Music, weren't taking any chances. Trailer Choir are Crystal, chief songwriter Butter, and Big Vinny. The band wrote or co-wrote most of the songs on Tailgate; all three are vocalists who really can sing (think a more working class version of Rascal Flatts). The ten songs are full of hooky, sing along choruses in a big rock guitar brand of contemporary country. The best cuts on the set are "In My Next 5 Beers," with its hints of 1970s mid-Texas songwriting (think Jerry Jeff Walker coming of age in the 21st century country music biz), "Rollin' Through the Sunshine (Summer Mix)," and the raucous "Last Man Standing," which was produced by Butter and Mills Logan. The album goes by in a blur at just over half an hour (and doesn't need to be a second longer), as one solidly placed party anthem after another. The trio is backed by a crack Nash-Vegas studio band and Keith's production. As in-your-face slick as it is, Tailgate also contains a live sounding presence for a studio record. Look for this one to get lots of play in honky tonks and on the radio.

My album for this summer


Formed: Nashville, TN

Genre: Country

Years Active: '00s, '10s

With titles like "Rockin' the Beer Gut" and "In My Next Five Beers," it shouldn't take long to figure out the Nashville-based trio Trailer Choir sing of good times, better whiskey, and the best American nightlife has to offer. With members Crystal, Butter, and Vinny -- the 400 pound man who is known to dance the worm in the middle of their shows -- Trailer Choir started out as a cover band, playing everything from the barroom standard "Friends in Low Places" to the disco favorite "I Will Survive."...
