With hits such as “Holler back” and “American Beauty,” The Lost Trailers will get Wednesday night’s concert started. The Lost Trailers began making music together in high school in Georgia. The founding members of the band Stokes Nielson and Ryder Lee also roomed together at Vanderbilt University and collaborated on a musical interpretation of a series of short stories. Little by little, the band started recruiting the rest of its members. The Lost Trailers got their first big break in 2000 after Stokes gave Willie Nelson a demo, which prompted Nelson to invite the band to play at his annual Fourth of July picnic. The band’s name came after a trailer full of instruments and equipment was stolen their first year together. The name was meant to be an inside joke, but it started to seem prophetic by the time their third instrument trailer disappeared. The Lost Trailers were recognized by Mediabase as the most played new country band of 2008.
To end the Wednesday concert, the Berrien County Youth Fair will host superstar Jerrod Niemann. Although a native of Kansas, Jerrod studied music at South Plains College in Levelland, TX.

Jerrod has come out with hits such as “Shinin’ On Me” and “Lover, Lover.” Fans attending the concert are sure to catch a glimpse of Jerrod’s larger than life personality and sense of humor.
