Trailer Choir

“It’s nearly Fall. It’s Tailgate time and with this song Trailer Choir delivers a fun, upbeat hit for Country Radio. It’s perfect for the season!”
Tim Roberts, WYCD/WOMC Operations/Program Director.

Trailer Choir has long been known for its energetic live shows, so it’s only appropriate the group’s latest single was ‘born’ at a concert. “Shakin’ That Tailgate” is the result of lead vocalist Butter having a chance meeting backstage with artist/writer Brady Seals.

“We had just arrived backstage for our performance at KBWF’s 2009 Beach Ball Free For All,” Butter recalls. “Brady was just finishing his last song on stage and I was like ‘damn, that’s Brady Seals.’ I’ve loved everything this guy has done. So I bum rushed him like a frantic groupie as he walked offstage, introduced myself and asked him if he had any old songs sitting around the garage that might work for us.

“The very next morning he emailed me 10 songs to check out. I kept coming back to this song called ‘Bonnie’ because of a phrase I kept saying over and over in my head—’shakin’ that tailgate.’ I came up with a rough verse and chorus melody and called him, and after I got over the fact that I was actually talking to Brady Seals on the phone, I proposed my idea to make ‘shakin’ that tailgate’ a song. He said ‘I’m in,’ and two days later we gave birth to a 6 pound 3 ounce little baby song called ‘Shakin’ That Tailgate’.”

“Shakin’ That Tailgate” is the latest single from the trio’s Show Dog-Universal Music debut CD Tailgate which shows off Butter and vocal partners, the lovely Crystal and the 382-pound guy in overalls, Big Vinny.
