Country music band The Lost Trailers are joining forces with CMT's music discovery platform, CMT Artists, this summer to give fans nationwide an exclusive multi-media experience on the group's forthcoming 2014 Tour!
How COOL is that?
Fans will have the chance to appear in a music video at every tour date and showcase their hometowns. These unique videos will be live on The Lost Trailers exclusive site on cmt.com/artists and on the CMT Artists App.
It truly is interactive and for the fans, by the fans, and of the fans.
"One of my favorite parts of touring is learning about the great regions of America that I've never been to before, or haven't had the chance to really experience," shares TLT's frontman Stokes Nielson. "This allows not only us, but the whole country music community, to have access to these heartland stories and local lore."
How will it work? We are glad you asked!
At every tour stop, The Lost Trailers' show will be filmed with state-of-the-art video production highlighting the night's crowd participation. An interactive "Fan-Filmed" area will also be on-site to collect video footage captured from fans, including content that showcases the local community, the before-during-and-after experiences around the show and local up-and-coming acts. The footage will then be combined to create a new music video for every show.
"CMT Artists was designed to unite artists and fans across the digital landscape, and The Lost Trailers are taking an unprecedented approach that taps the full creative potential of the platform," said Brian Bayley, Manager of Music Strategy for CMT. "The fan-filmed channel allows everyone to share their experiences well after the concert has ended. We encourage Lost Trailer fans to login and see themselves online, stay current on tour dates and tickets and download the CMT Artists App (which is at cmt.com) to share with fellow fans."
The band was discovered by Willie Nelson and frontman Nielson is also a new media entrepreneur and a producer for Google/YouTube's Country Now TV.
Nelson and Neilson – cool!
