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
Trent Tomlinson is a veteran Nashville songwriter, having endured a number of publishing deals before landing a record contract. These songs reflect that - they're clever and crafted, but sometimes empty. He starts with an anthem of sorts, "Country is My Rock," declaring his allegiance to Hank, Hag and screaming guitars. 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: Kristofferson gives insight, but no easy answers – When they say music gets better with age, they're not always just talking about songs alone; sometimes they're also referring to the listener. When Kris Kristofferson sings, "Well, I woke up Sunday morning/With no way to hold my head that didn't hurt," to smartly open "Sunday Mornin' Comin' Down," he... »»»
Concert Review: No sugarcoating, Welch dishes out an experience – Gillian Welch (accompanied, as always, by master guitarist David Rawlings), celebrated her "The Harrow & The Harvest" album with a powerful night of music. She apologized many times for the utter unhappiness expressed through this album's songs, admitting it's "not the most chipper album" at one point.... »»»

First Cigarette CD review - First Cigarette
The stunning vocal of Travis Meadows on the opening track, "Sideways," brims with honesty, pain and hard-earned wisdom as he offers a blend of confession and advice, stimulated by an experience at an adolescent addiction treatment center. Meadows, like many, is one of those Nashville songwriters ("Riser" for Dierks Bentley and "What We Ain't Got" for Jake Owen), but is finding his own voice relatively late in life. »»»
