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.
