The Lost Trailers is a country music project of songwriter/producer Stokes Nielson. Nielson's first record using the name The Lost Trailers was an album entitled "The Story of the New Age Cowboy" which was discovered by Willie Nelson in the spring of 2000. Nelson was so impressed with the album that he invited The Lost Trailers to perform at his legendary 4th of July Picnic.
Using that show and others with Nelson as a launching pad, The Lost Trailers rose from a hard touring regional act to snagging 3 ACM Nominations and several Top 20 hits on country radio while opening for Sugarland, Taylor Swift, Jamey Johnson and many others.
Buoyed by Nielson's songwriting, which was also being noticed by other artists- he was one of the few outside songwriters on Grammy Award recipient Zac Brown Band's Double Platinum Album "The Foundation"- The Lost Trailers were recognized by Mediabase as the most played new country band of 2008.
The Lost Trailers continued touring through 2010, first as opener for Tim McGraw's attendance shattering tour with Lady Antebellum, then as a part of the Inaugural Country Throwdown Tour with Montgomery Gentry and Jamey Johnson.
The Lost Trailers started 2011 by working on a collaboration single, Heart Of A Champion, with Newnan, GA based artist, Corbette Jackson, to raise money for Coweta County Firefighter Chris Landreau's fight against Stage 4 Cancer. On March 5th, The Lost Trailers joined with Jackson and Chick-Fil-et to put on a benefit for Landreau. South Texas guitar-slinger Charles Longoria and drummer David Sutton recently joined on as the newest members of The Lost Trailers touring band.
