Wisconsin’s Country Thunder was four days of people, rain and wall-to-wall country music. Mother Nature might not have been kind to the festival’s visitors, but they didn’t seem to mind a little water or mud when it gave them a chance to see Kenny Chesney, Miranda Lambert, Sugarland or Trailer Choir. GAC’s Suzanne Alexander didn’t mind either — she was there, too, chatting with some of those stars for this weekend’s Top 20 Country Countdown (check out our festival photos here).

The rain was certainly a problem for Country Thunder last weekend, though the show, as they say, must go on. Randy Houser, Luke Bryan, Craig Morgan, Gloriana, Kevin Costner, Jason Aldean, Billy Currington, Miranda and Sugarland were all on hand — and all of them spent a little time with Suzanne. As did Trailer Choir, a new trio whose album Tailgate came out earlier this month. The fun-loving band’s Big Vinny even found Suzanne hiding in his bunk! Watch the clip below:

The band — Butter, Crystal and Big Vinny — sold more than 250,000 copies of its “Rockin’ The Beer Gut,” and it’s rockin’ along with some pretty significant artist friends. Trailer Choir signed to Toby Keith’s Show Dog-Universal record label, which released the band’s first album, Tailgate, earlier this month. The group also provides backing vocals for one song, “Don’t Mind If I Don’t,” on Trace Adkins’ new album, Cowboy’s Back In Town. That project comes out Aug. 17.
