Lost Trailers' song makes Olympics

Saturday, August 4, 2012 – Dial Global Sports, the exclusive national radio broadcaster for the London 2012 Olympic Games, went country Thursday night with a montage for new women's Olympic All-Around gymnastics champion Gabby Douglas. With The Lost Trailers' new song American Beauty as the foundation, the montage highlighted Douglas's historic night, featuring custom Olympic-themed lyrics and play-by-play highlights of her performance along with Douglas' reaction to bringing home the gold.

"When I heard American Beauty for the first time last month, I knew immediately it would be a great anthem to use somehow during our Olympic coverage," said Dial Global Sports Executive Producer Howard Deneroff. "Stokes and Jason were receptive and gracious enough to cut customized lyrics, and Gabby Douglas gave us the reason to put it all together."

"Jason and I are extremely proud that when Dial Global was looking for music to capture this awesome win for Team USA, that they chose American Beauty," said Stokes Nielson, who mans the three-time ACM-Nominated act with singer Jason Wyatt.

"We were freaking out, as we listened to the coverage," said Wyatt, "We get super psyched about the Olympics anyway, so to have this connect is just icing on the cake."

Holler Back CD review - Holler Back
There seems to be a strong theme to this Georgia quintet's third major label CD. Almost every song is about country living. Either about how great it is to rusticate or conversely how great it is to get of the backwoods. In the title track and first single, the misplaced mobile homes feel out of place in a hip-hop world and long to return to Hillbilly Heaven. Blacktop Road and Country Folks (Livin' Loud) are paeans to pastoral living. The singer of Things You Don't Grow Out Of had »»»
The Lost Trailers CD review - The Lost Trailers
When The Lost Trailer's singer Ryder Lee states emphatically, "I'm a country man," within the song of the same name, he's expressing regional rather than musical roots. This five-piece group may rock harder than most traditional country acts, but they aren't tough enough to compete with the alternative fury of either Drive-By Truckers or My Morning Jacket. Instead, they raise a little guitar-y dust via "Dixie Boy Special," and then remind you of Steve »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: There's a lot to be said about The Felice Brothers – The Felice Brothers have soldiered on, occupying the fringes of the musical world with ups and downs.

Concert Review: Turner bring it on (to his second) home – Frank Turner opined during the first of four sold-out nights of the Lost Evenings Festival that Boston was his home away from his British home. The likable, accessible singer hit the sweet spot not only with his perspective, but his performance as well demonstrated why. Turner made a major change in this year's festival. For the first time, he... »»»
