While in high school in Kennett, Missouri, Trent placed second in the “You Can Be a Star” talent show on The Nashville Network which began to fuel his passion for country music.
Son of a former University of Missouri basketball star who later got drafted to the NBA by the Cleveland Cavaliers, Trent debuted his first single, “Drunker Than Me” in 2005 which was followed by his album Country Is My Rock.
“Drunker Than Me” peaked on the US Country chart at 19. “One Wing in the Fire” hit 11 on the chart, the highest position of his career, the following year in 2006.
After Disney closed their country label, Lyric Street, Tomlinson took time to write, record and produce several new songs and search for a new record label.
In early 2011, Kevin Herring, former VP of National Promotion at Lyric Street, became the President of Skyville Records. After seeing a Facebook post from a radio programmer raving about Tomlinson’s new project, Herring knew it could be a great project for Skyville to take on.
“Trent Tomlinson is arguably the best country singer and songwriter working in the mainstream today.” Says Wally Wilson, Skyville Managing Partner. “Trent has the uncanny ability to remain true blue to his traditional country roots, and yet create records that are straight down the middle of the fairway, radio-wise.”
Tomlinson is gearing up for the release of his brand new single with Skyville Records, “A Man Without A Woman.” This is a song that men can relate to and woman can agree with. It will be hitting iTunes on October 11th.
