Texas Hill – Craig Wayne Boyd, Casey James and Adam Wakefield
Country trio Texas Hill, comprised of Craig Wayne Boyd, Casey James and Adam Wakefield, are pleading with folks in the Nashville area to help them locate a stolen trailer that was filled with the band’s equipment and merchandise.
Boyd took to social media late Tuesday (July 20) to share the unfortunate news that their trailer was stolen from the Sylvan Park area.
“We had our drum vaults, our guitar vault, our Behringer in Ear rack with three Shure IEMs and all of our Audio-Technica USA microphones to Mike Drums, and all of our vocal mics.￼ a few guitars, ALL our Merch,” Boyd shared of the contents of the trailer.
He went on to share a description of the trailer and ask people in the area to be on the lookout for it.
“It is a 12 foot, Carry-on Trailer, Inc. trailer with a double axle, black… If anyone sees anything running around town right now please let us know… I am at a loss…,” he wrote.
Boyd’s post raked in hundreds of shares and comments, however, it appears the trailer is still missing as of early Wednesday morning.
Texas Hill formed in 2020 and is comprised of Boyd, season seven winner of The Voice, Wakefield, season 10 runner up on The Voice, and James, who placed third on American Idol season 9.

The trio formed after Boyd, Wakefield and James played several shows together as solo artists and decided that they should form a band.
“We all saw the benefit of bringing three different audiences together from a touring perspective, but none of us were committed to the band until we sat down and actually started making music together,” James told Billboard last year. “The first day that we really worked up a few songs to test the waters really sealed the deal for us. Hearing our voices blend together was something that got us all excited and, from that point on, we have all been 100% resolved to make it happen.”
In addition to performing together as Texas Hill, the members also plan to continue to pursue solo careers.
