Exclusive Interview: Trailer Choir Is On A ‘Music With A Mission’

Shawn Rode

How many times have your kids brought home something to sell that raises funds for a worthy cause?  Candy bars for the sports team, boxes of chocolates for a school trip, popcorn for the music department, before you know it your hawking more stuff at work than a door-to-door salesman.  When it kept happening at the home of Trailer Choir‘s, Big Vinny, he came up with an idea: ‘Music With A Mission.’

‘Music With A Mission’ Concept

Like any good idea, it starts when someone is challenged.  When Big Vinny’s son came home, again, with donuts to sell for a cause.  He complained, that’s when his wife Lori told him to, ‘stop complaining and do something about it.’

Making it Happen

While he had a great idea, Vinny knew the challenge would be finding a way to get money for staging, sound and lighting equipment and a venue for the concert, not to mention music acts to play the concert.  He says that’s when Colt Ford, A Forever Recovery and Best Drug Rehabilitation Center came to the rescue.

Vinny says once the stars and sponsors are on board, kids sell concert tickets and with concession sales, they will make nearly $60,000 and save their music program at school.

Future Missions

This weekend will be the first “Music With A Mission” concert, but Vinny sees big things for future, with several country stars already wanting to get involved. Lee Brice, Eli Young Band, Justin Moore, Brantley Gilbert are all excited and want to be a part of this.’
