Trent Tomlinson Returns Home for Special Benefit Concert
Trent Tomlinson knows how to have a good time, onstage and off, but the 'Drunker Than Me' singer has a soft side, too, especially when it comes to children. The Kennett, Mo., native will return to his hometown on May 24 to perform his second annual benefit for the Delta Children's Home, sharing the stage with good friends Uncle Kracker and Keith Anderson. The concert will raise funds for the non-profit organization's two children's homes in Kennett.
"Last year's concert was an incredible success," Trent tells CMTT. "I'm so grateful to Uncle Kracker and Keith Anderson for their involvement this year. The Delta Children's Home has been going strong since 1963 and has benefited thousands of children throughout the region. With the current economic conditions, every little bit helps, so we've committed to donating 100% of the concert proceeds to the organization. You can bet we'll continue this tradition for years to come."
Trent, who lost his record deal when Lyric Street closed their doors last year, decided to release a new 12-song album on his own, without the support of a big label.
"This train's rollin', and I'm not going to wait on anybody to do anything for me," he tells The Boot. "I'm just trying to create my own buzz, and I think we're doing that. This album is the best thing I've ever done, musically. It's exciting. I hope everybody enjoys it as much as I've enjoyed making it. It truly has been a roller coaster, but it's been well worth it for sure."
