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.

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.... »»»
