The Lost Trailers Frontman Resigns

jason wyatt

Today, Jason Wyatt, lead singer of The Lost Trailers announced his resignation from the country duo.

Wyatt cites a resurgence of interest in restarting his solo career and a need to better focus on the growth of his music production, songwriting and artist development company, Jason Wyatt Productions. Rounding out the next chapter of his career, Wyatt has been signed on as a consultant and producer with American Country Star, the Nashville-based national music competition for aspiring country artists.

“I really appreciate these last few years with the Trailers,” says Wyatt. “I have loved playing to all of the great fans around the country. All I can say is stay excited… there’s a lot more to come.”

Wyatt is currently hard at work on his upcoming solo album currently slated for a 4th quarter 2014 release.

The Lost Trailers saw two Top-40 Country hits during the 2011-2014 tenure with Wyatt. The upbeat “American Beauty” was used in a featured montage to celebrate Olympic gold medalist Gabby Douglas and the fan favorite “Underdog,” was the group’s first single released with Wyatt as the band’s front man.

Dierks, Miranda, Blake, & More to Play 1st Ever Watershed Festival!


Live Nation Entertainment is leading the charge for a new country festival where the music and atmosphere will rival the serene, natural beauty of the landscape. Watershed Music Festival will take place August 3rd, 4th and th5 at the iconic Gorge Amphitheatre and is set to feature a versatile lineup of artists, camping, late night sets, impromptu jam sessions, collaborations and more. Located east of Seattle, the Gorge Amphitheatre provides a picturesque backdrop for the laid back, country vibe O’Connell has envisioned for this truly unmatched festival. Three-day festival passes start at only $90 and go on sale Sat., May 5th at and

“The Gorge provides a feeling that is impossible to recreate anywhere else,” said O’Connell. “It is truly a magical place and provides the perfect setting for a cool, eclectic country event. We wanted to create something that didn’t exist, from the caliber of artists to the camping and the atmosphere. I’m excited to be a part of it and see it all come together.”

“In the storied 25 year history of The Gorge, we’ve been fortunate to host many of the nation’s top country artists, but all have been single day concerts,” said Jeff Trisler, President of Live Nation Seattle. “For years, we’ve wanted to host a multiple day country festival that builds on the tremendous success for our annual Sasquatch Music Festival and Dave Matthews Band residency. We believe this event will bring that same sort of excitement and energy to The Gorge for an entirely new group of music fans.”

Artists confirmed for the multi-day country fest include Dierks Bentley, Kix Brooks, Sara Evans, Brantley Gilbert, Miranda Lambert, Blake Shelton, Thompson Square, Uncle Kracker, Dwight Yoakam, Tracy Lawrence, Reckless Kelly, The Lost Trailers, Steve Holy, Johnny Reid, Jon Pardi, Thomas Rhett, Morgan Frazier, DeeJay Silver and a local stage will feature regional acts each night. More artists are set to be announced in the coming weeks.

The Gorge Amphitheatre, located in George, Wash., is undoubtedly one of the most scenic concert venues in the world and offers sweeping views of the Columbia River Gorge. The area itself is a watershed for the Columbia River, thus inspiring the name of the event. The Watershed Music Festival will feature a limited capacity of 25,000 and will offer lawn terrace seating and premiere camping options. The amphitheatre has been the home of many historic concerts from bands such as Pearl Jam, Dave Matthews Band, Phish, Van Halen, Rush, Radiohead, Tim McGraw, Aerosmith, Metallica, Rascal Flatts, John Mayer, The Police, Brad Paisley, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and the annual Sasquatch! Music Festival.

The Lost Trailers Call it Quits

After finishing out 2010, the group made famous by “Holler Back” will be dividing and going their seperate ways. The Lost Trailers are calling it quits as a group.

“I’m thrilled to finish playing out the shows on the calendar for our fans,” lead singer Ryder Lee said. “We’ve been blessed to have their unending support over the years.

Don’t fret, the guys will still be making sweet music together…just not together.

“We started this band as a bunch of high school friends with a dream of making music, and we’ve taken that dream to incredible places that have opened a lot of doors for us,” Stokes said. “I look forward to thanking the fans on our tour dates throughout this year; they’ve always been there for us.”
