“I got a story if you got a minute, but don’t worry it’s got a happy ending and you’re in it”
The song, “Love Me First” tells the story of everything the Trailer Choir duo, Butter and Bigg Vinny have experienced over the last year. Butter explains, "We lost our record deal, went from a trio to a duo, and had to face the fact that Vinny's health might prevent him from ever entertaining again. It was a scary time. Vinny was down, not just emotionally, but he was also in a hospital bed for almost two weeks.”
Just like the first line in their new song, “Love Me First,” Butter and Bigg Vinny do have a story to tell and it has a happy ending!
As Vinny was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, but was able to make a full recovery. Regarding his weight, Vinny explains, "I've always thought I was comfortable with my weight; I was just the big guy in overalls. But after I got sick, I started to really look at myself from the inside out, and I realized that maybe I wasn't as happy or healthy as I could be or should be.”
“It took a long time for me to say it. I’m afraid it made me scared. I couldn’t take it, but I can now. I can face it.” Soon after this realization, Vinny became a contestant on the NBC hit show “The Biggest Loser.” Thus, the happy ending has begun.
"Love Me First" represents the fight and love for happiness that we all struggle with, and the realization that we have to love ourselves first. "If I'm ever gonna’ fly If I'm ever gonna’ live this life If I'm ever gonna’ know what it means For somebody else to ever truly love me So much it hurts…. I've got to love me first”
