I got an e-mail from Brian Robillard today, manager of online marketing at Universal Music Group / NetReach. He said he’s working on the soundtrack for the new Toby Keith / CMT theatrical release of Beer for My Horses. The album features Toby, Willie Nelson, Ted Nugent, Trailer Choir, and Carter’s Chord.
Brian said the focus track of the soundtrack, “Off the Hillbilly Hook,” is from a very unique country group called Trailer Choir, and is being featured in all 30 major league baseball stadiums this year. Check out the video on You Tube.
This is Trailer Choir. Be sure to check out their MySpace page. You can hear clips from several of their songs, as well as read a short bio from each of the group members. The group is made up of Big Vinny,from Linden, TN, Crystal, from Cheyneyville, La.; and Butter, from Ashtabula, Ohio.
They are recording for Toby’s label, Show Dog Nashville, and are currently on tour with Toby. And, while you’re out there surfing the net, remember to visit the movie’s web site, too. I’ll be anxious to hear from whoever is first to see Beer For My Horses when it is released to theaters Aug. 8.
Take care! More tomorrow! Write when you have time. Love you guys!
