Trent Tomlinson offers new single
Monday, June 1, 2009
– Trent Tomlinson released a new single, Henry Cartwright's Produce Stand
to radio. The song was penned Tomlinson, Danny Wells and Mark Kerr and produced by Tomlinson and Leigh Reynolds.
The song is inspired by a local fixture in Tomlinson's hometown of Kennett, Mo., who sells produce out of his pickup truck. "There was and still is a guy in Kennett, Mo., who sits on the east side of town just past the golf course who has a produce stand," said Tomlinson. "I call it a stand, but really it's a pickup truck parked halfway in a drainage ditch with the tailgate down and the bed filled with some of the best produce money can buy. The unique thing though is that it's not your ordinary produce stand. It wasn't pay-and-go; it was pay-and-listen. If this guy didn't see you in church the Sunday before, he would tell you all about what you missed. This song is my take on what this fella stood for and his always-tasty produce."
As the best selling debut male artist of the 2006 class, Tomlinson's hit singles include One Wing In The Fire, Just Might Have Her Radio On and Drunker Than Me. After wrapping in the studio, Tomlinson has spent 2009 touring and visiting radio stations across the country. Henry Cartwright's Produce Stand is from Tomlinson's upcoming sophomore album, A Guy Like Me," scheduled to release this fall.

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: LSD tour provides a lot of highs
This was not your grandkids' country, that's for sure. Even the name of the tour - the LSD Tour - was a throwback (albeit far before the principals were making music). But make no mistake about it. With the ever cool country traditionalist Dwight Yoakam, the country with some rock and blues and rabble rousing of Steve Earle thrown in and the... »»»
Concert Review: Alvin, Gilmore fortunately get together
Dave Alvin and Jimmie Dale Gilmore had known each other for decades, but it wasn't until last year that they toured together in a guitar pull setting. What started as a small Texas tour mushroomed into points east and west and eventually the release earlier this month of their blues-based disc, "Downey to Lubbock."
And now we have the... »»»

Sugarland is back with "Bigger," its first studio album in nearly a decade. And its arrival says more about branding, than anything else.
