Known for his impeccable yet raw vocals, Trent Harmon today released his stirring new single “You Got ‘Em All” (Big Machine Records). Available now at digital retailers.
Earning the top prize as the last American Idol, Trent has spent the past year honing his sound and discovering his songwriting prowess with some of the most coveted tunesmiths in Nashville and Los Angeles. Inspired by the relationship with his longtime girlfriend, Trent crafted “You Got ‘Em All” alongside Justin Ebach (SESAC’s Songwriter of the Year) and Jordan Minton with Jimmy Robbins and Scott Borchetta at the helm producing.
He performed the impassioned song Wednesday (Feb 8) at the Big Machine Label Group Luncheon during Country Radio Seminar, where he received a standing ovation – the second consecutive year he warranted such a response to his captivating live show. He belted out the touching lyrics such as: “Cause I’m still waitin’ on life to begin again / Still waitin’ on love to give a second chance / To stop me and steal my breath the way you did / I’m still lookin’ for your Jeep in every parking lot/ Still taste your lips with every whiskey shot / I hope you found whatever I ain’t found yet / ‘Cause I feel like all my better days are gone / And I think you got ‘em all.”
“This past year has been tough,” stated Trent. “I have had a few highs and many lows. The reaction to this song has made it all worth it, and I am so excited to get out there and share it with fans.”
According to ABC News, Trent was inspired by the news that his longtime girlfriend suddenly planned to move overseas in just a matter of days.
His trajectory is on the mark to surpass the success of Trent’s first single, the Top 20 “There’s A Girl.” He hits the road this month to share more new music with radio before “You Got ‘Em All” officially rocks Country airwaves beginning March 19.
Fans have been waiting a long time for new music from Trent. With over a year between new releases, some wondered if the reigning American Idol winner had been dropped by his label. But fear not! The team at Big Machine Records seem finally ready to push the singer’s music on radio again. It sounds like Trent had a really difficult year on several fronts. Here’s hoping things are finally looking up for him.
