Trent Tomlinson presents new single

Tuesday, December 16, 2008 – After finishing as the best-selling debut male of the 2006 class and releasing three consecutive hit singles from his first CD "Country Is My Rock," Trent Tomlinson returns with a new single and a new label home with Disney Music Group imprint Carolwood Records. Tomlinson's new single, That's How It Still Oughta Be will be available for digital download on Dec. 22.

"We are really excited about this new music and Trent's move to Carolwood Records allows us to get his music out sooner," says Lyric Street and Carolwood VP National Promotion Kevin Herring. "With the great early feedback we've been getting from radio and the timeliness of the song's subject, we felt it imperative to make this move."

The song was penned by Tomlinson, Jim Collins and Tom Shapiro and co-produced by Tomlinson and Leigh Reynolds.

There was no word on when Tomlinson's second CD would be out. Carolwood formed earlier this year as a sister label to Lyric Street, which was Tomlinson's first label.

Country Is My Rock CD review - Country Is My Rock

It's fair warning of what's to come: many more screaming guitars. Tomlinson does pause for some emotional moments. On "Just Might Have Her Radio On," he argues a counterpoint to »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Cantrell continues to satisfy – Laura Cantrell may never be a country star. Not at this stage of her career when she's 50, touring here and there and releasing new music every few years or so. But five albums in, Cantrell continues as a warm, enjoyable and worthy purveyor of her brand of country. That would mean going towards a more traditional side, not rushing the songs... »»»
Concert Review: Not only is Turner traditional, he's popular – Every time Josh Turner reached for some of those wonderful subterranean low notes, which he often pulled out during his enjoyable night show, it was like a superhero applying a superpower. He didn't need this extra advantage to please his audience; he has so many quality songs stockpiled in his catalogue already doing the job.... »»»

"Boys from Back Home" is Scotty McCreery's amalgamation of Kenny Chesney's "I Go Back" and "Boys of Fall," which even borrows words from each hit song to create something attempting to be new. It's not new. »»»
