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: Lots to like about McKenna (when you could hear her) – Lori McKenna had lots of reasons to be in a good mood. First off, the opening band, a pop act called teenender included two of her sons. In two days, her 11th disc, "The Tree" would be released to glowing reviews. So it would seem that this homecoming show was the ideal setting with all five kids, her husband, siblings, cousins, people who... »»»
Concert Review: With Sugarland, the wait was worth it – A few songs into Sugarland's show, Kristian Bush referenced the band's five-year gap between tours saying, "A lot of people think Jennifer and I have been on a five-year vacation. Actually, we've been very busy." Clearly a lot of that time was spent in rehearsal. The duo put on a two-hour high energy gem that started out big... »»»

The Tree CD review - The Tree
It's difficult to know where to start when praising Lori McKenna's "The Tree." It's so good in so many ways. Artists like Little Big Town and Tim McGraw have benefited greatly from recording McKenna songs, yet it's unlikely many mainstream country music fans recognize her name. »»»
