Lost Trailers release new single
Monday, March 17, 2008
– The Lost Trailers put out a new single, "Holler Back," after spending a good chunk of 2007 recording new music.
Driven by the soulful vocals of lead singer Ryder Lee, "Holler Back," written by guitarist and vocalist Stokes Nielson, was inspired after a gig in the Georgia woods one summer night, where nearly a thousand people came out to "Have a good time and celebrate country life by getting' back to the holler," said Nielson.
That 'celebration' carried through to the recording of the song as Stokes' baby girl, the first 'Little Trailer,' was born the day before the recording session. "I think you can hear the extra excitement in the track," he said.
"'Holler Back' is The Lost Trailers' way of saying that us country folks have it good. and when the girls can shake their sassafras to one of our songs, we're always happy to oblige," Stokes laughed.
The Lost Trailers released their BNA debut in August 2006 after previously releasing two albums on their own and one on Universal Republic in 2004.
No word on when a new disc would be released.

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 ...
