All Music Guide - Thom Jurek
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 ...

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.

    Tailgate fun, fun, fun

    Wasn't really sure what to expect, had only heard the cut Rollin thru the Sunshine as a video, but it was enough to draw me in so I bought the CD.

    Glad I did, this is just fun, fun, fun. You can't help be in a good mood after listening to this.

    Looking forward to more from this trio.
