Country music recording artist, Trent Tomlinson, celebrates his return to the country music spotlight with the world premiere release of his new single, “Come Back To Bed.” ** In an exclusive SiriusXM weekend premiere, the single made The Highway spin list and the corresponding music video made grand first impressions (May 3, 2014/ www.siriusxm.com). The amorous tune is anticipated to play exclusively on the SiriusXM radio channel over the course of the next few weeks before segueing to major terrestrial radio.
An iTunes Country favorite this week, the track (co-written by Tomlinson, Ashe Underwood and Terri Jo Box) is garnering early applause from country music enthusiasts across the board. The singer/songwriter’s duly anticipated return to the airwaves reveals a slight departure from the notorious party anthems, rough and ruckus storylines and “bad boy” image he has been characterized by to subtly introduce a more mature, sensual side. With descriptive, passionate lyrics, the self-produced tender single is his “sexiest to date.”
“To capture the sentiment and appeal from both perspectives, I really wanted insight from a female,” introduced Tomlinson. “It was important to me that we have a female write with us—or it would have been loaded with male testosterone rather than a romantic gesture. Terri Jo helped us ‘bring it home’.”
Making his entry in the country music scene official as a Lyric Street Records recording artist, Tomlinson released his debut album COUNTRY IS MY ROCK in early 2006. This project produced three Top 40 singles on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs charts: “Drunker Than Me” at No. 19, “One Wing In The Fire” at No. 11 and “Just Might Have Her Radio On” at No. 21. While he may have temporarily stepped away from the recording studio, his talents as a sought-after songcrafter were proudly and steadily upheld by fellow award winning entertainers including George Strait (“Why Can’t I Leave Her Alone”), Sara Evans (“Missing Missouri”), Emerson Drive (“Say My Name”/”Evidence”/ ”Light Of Day”) and most recently, Parmalee who recorded “Close Your Eyes”—which is currently positioned to be a hit record.
In support of the “Come Back To Bed” single release, the corresponding music video is anticipated to air across all major video outlets and digital and social media platforms. Directed by Marcel Chagnan, the vignette features Tomlinson’s wistful bedside manner and an unexpected (and dreamy) appearance by the former Mrs. Tomlinson.
The single arrives from Tomlinson’s third studio album [from the EP anticipated in late Fall 2014 (Giuseppe Records) under the management direction of the Mike & Joe Show, LLC]. The single is currently available via iTunes and all other major digital outlets.
