Tomlinson slates digital EP release

Friday, November 20, 2009 – Trent Tomlinson is preparing to release a 3-song digital exclusive EP, "A Guy Like Me," on Monday, Nov. 23. The project features previously unreleased tracks That's How It Still Ought To Be and Henry Cartwright's Produce Stand plus Tomlinson's brand new single, Angels Like Her.

Tomlinson was slated to have an album out this year, but that apparently was delayed. He released Henry Cartwright's Produce Stand as a single in June, but it failed to make much of a chart impact.

"This has to be my favorite song I've ever written" said Tomlinson about the new single. "I was so happy when the label came to me and said they wanted this to be the single. I love how the track turned out." The song is slated to be on an upcoming CD, but no release date has been divulged.

As the best selling debut male artist of the 2006 class, Trent 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 the year touring and visiting radio stations across the country.

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: Carlile warms hearts with empathetic thoughts – Brandi Carlile, dressed festively with a Santa hat, began her mid-week concert set with Joni Mitchell's "River" and closed with the carol "O Holy Night." In between, she sang about an equal measure of old and new songs. And on this first night of a short acoustic tour, Carlile was both in fine spirits and voice.... »»»
Concert Review: Daniels wears out bows, but music endures – After each of the first few songs Charlie Daniels played, his 'fiddle tech (?)' exchanged his bow. Is this because he was playing particularly hard? Perhaps. Whatever the case, Daniels and his five-piece band clearly appeared to be giving it their all during the act's hour-and-a-half set. As it is the Christmas month, Daniels sang a... »»»

Walker Hayes has a lot of Sam Hunt in his music, in that he mixes a lot of hip-hop in with his country. Traditionalists will have trouble with his unorthodox approach. Kids, though, raised on just as much Drake as Paisley, will likely eat it up. »»»
