The New Braunfels, Texas-native wrote the feel-good tune alongside Nashville songwriters Joe Clemmons and Rodney Clawson. The track was produced by award-winning producer, Dann Huff.
The song is all about embracing what makes you feel good and embracing anything that life throws at you.
“Everybody’s got a different definition of the good stuff / Heading down the highway looking for a hook up/ You’ll know that you found it when the dreamer in your heart’s/ Pulling in to Happyland Trailer Park,” Offerman sings on the chorus.
Arriving just in time for Spring, “Happyland Trailer Park” is the kind of song that begs to be played with the windows down and the volume up.
Offerman, who graduated Berklee College of Music at age 19, shares, “Everybody’s got a different definition of the ‘good stuff’ but what is the ‘good stuff?’ It’s what makes you happy, it’s what makes you feel alive. ‘Happyland Trailer Park’ is the place your spirit leads you. It’s about searching out the parts of life that aren’t mapped out. I love the uncertainties in the adventure and finding the happiness of the journey along the way. The heart is the key – just going with it and taking the ride.”
Catie Offerman is a multi-instrumentalist who plays violin, accordion, and more. She began touring at just 11 years old when her accordion teacher asked her to join a polka band. She signed to Universal Music Group in 2020.
