Song Premiere: The Steel Blossoms Celebrate Small Town Characters With 'Trailer Neighbor'

Country-folk duo the Steel Blossoms (Sara Zebley and Hayley Prosser) pay tribute to the nosiest (and most lovable) neighbor on the block with their new song "Trailer Neighbor." The upbeat, rootsy tune about every small town's designated coupon clipper and self-appointed therapist (think Truvy and Clairee from Steel Magnolias) is a little Roger Miller, a little Same Trailer, Different Park-era Kacey Musgraves and all sharp wit direct from the multitalented Nashville-based duo.

"If I need a cigarette, a good cry or some Aquanet or someone to send prayers to the Savior/ I'll walk right over to my trailer neighbor," the duo sings.

The Steel Blossoms explain that though the song was born out of small town experiences, trailer neighbors can be found just about anywhere.

"'Trailer Neighbor' was the result of our very first co-write with our friend, Mark. He had the idea and had been saving it for us, knowing that we'd be the perfect storytellers for this concept," the duo told Wide Open Country. "We got to talking about small town quirks and the fact that no matter where or how you live, trailer park or cul de sac, city or town, everyone has a 'trailer neighbor.' This is the person you can go to for milk and flour, alcohol, or to find out the latest town gossip. If you don't know who your trailer neighbor is, chances are, you're the trailer neighbor in your town."
