The Lost Trailers
  Duo Stokes Nielson & Jason Wyatt

The Lost Trailers is a country music duo comprised of songwriter/producer Stokes Nielson (Columbus,
GA) and Jason Wyatt (Washington State by way of west Texas). 

Several years before Wyatt, Neilson's first record using the name The Lost Trailers (a five member band) was entitled "The Story of the New Age Cowboy."  Within a month of its release, W
illie Nelson heard the song and invited them to open for him around the south and also perform at his legendary 4th of July Picnic.  Nielson said, "That started my musical journey." 

The Lost Trailers - Stokes Nielson
In 2005 Nielson was signed to EMI music publishing and were added to Sony Records a few months later by legendary record executive Joe Galante.  Using the "4th of July Picnic" show and others as a launching pad, The Lost Trailers rose from a hard touring regional act to snagging 3 Academy of Country Music nominations and several top 20 hits while opening to huge crowds for Sugarland, Taylor Swift, Jamey Johnson and many others.  "Holler Back" peaked at #9 on the Billboard country songs chart. They've recorded at Abbey Road Studios working with the legendary engineer/producer who has worked with The Rolling  Stones, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles and a myriad of well known artists.

Nielson is credited with songwriting of "Different Kind of Fine" on Grammy Award recipient The Zac Brown Band's double platinum album "The Foundation" (2008).

The band continued to tour through 2010, first as an 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.  

In 2011 Jason Wyatt joined Nielson launching the next chapter of The Lost Trailers. Wyatt spend years honing his chops and and songwriting skills in venues around west Texas.  Together they share the same vision, passion and excitement for making great music. They've found a unique similarity in their desire to write music that speaks to the heart of the everyday person - real music that their fans can relate to.

The first part of 2012 Nielson established his own record label and entertainment management company, Stokes Tunes who are behind Corbette Jackson, another Georgia artist who Nielson had collaborated with on a song written ("Heart of A Champion") to benefit a Georgia fire fighter who had stage four cancer, Lighter Ray, Jordyn Yarker and Jasmine V. 

The Lost Trailer's single "Underdog" originated out a very stressful time prior to Nielson connecting with Wyatt in 2011. In collaboration with other songwriters, Nielson began writing a song that ultimately turned out to define his life. They recorded at Abbey Road Studios working with legendary engineer/producer,
Eddie Kramer, who's worked with The Rolling  Stones, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles and a myriad of well known artists.
The song peaked at #37 March 2012 on the Billboard country songs chart making the Stokes Tunes label the only wholly artist-owned American-distributed firm in the United States to achieve Top 40 status in Country or Pop Top 40 radio play charts in 2012. This song became their fourth top 40 song in four years along with "Country Folks (Livin Loud)", "How 'Bout You Don't" and "Holler Back.

Their newest release July 2012, is "American Beauty". For the week ending September 8th the song had climbed to #48 on the Billboard country songs chart.  "American Beauty" served as the Olympic montage backdrop for a special feature by Dial Global Sports on Gabby Douglas, 2012 Olympics All-Around gymnastic champion.  Dial Global Sports was the exclusive radio broadcasting network for the London 2012 Olympic Games.
