Trailer Choir’s Vencent “Big Vinny” Hickerson has some really BIG news…He’s a dad! The singer and his wife Jenny welcomed a baby boy into the world on Tuesday, September 12. Weighing in at 7lbs 1oz and measuring 20 & 1/2 inches long, the baby made his Instagram debut shortly after entering the world.
“Me and @goforthfitness are proud to present ——————-JAGGER JAMES VAN-ZANT HICKERSON,” shared the proud new dad.
Named Jagger James Van-Zant Hickerson, the little boy made his appearance just days after his original due date after his mom was sent to the hospital to be induced.
“Well @jaggervanzant has grown too Bigg run out of room for @goforthfitness to carry him any longer so tonight at 8pm they will induce labor!!!! This is the proudest moment of my life!!!!! Jenny is gonna do her best to go natural she is so strong,” wrote Hickerson in a post to Instagram before Jagger’s arrival.
The baby is the first for the couple.
Trailer Choir began as a trio in 2007 when they signed a record deal with Toby Keith’s label Show Dog Records. Comprised of Marc “Butter” Fortney, Vencent “Big Vinny” Hickerson and Crystal Hoyt, the group quickly gained notoriety with songs like “What Would You Say”, “Rockin’ the Beer Gut” and “Rollin’ Through the Sunshine.” The trio became a duo when Hoyt left the band in 2011. Trailer Choir took a brief hiatus before returning to touring in 2013 and is expected to release new music soon.
