You would never know it by the scant attention Brent has received on the show so far, but Brent, whose country-rocked out audition of “Can’t Get Enough of Your Love” in Louisville did not impress Simon, has a long show business resume.
He was a contestant on Nashville Star 2. He had a song on the Dale soundtrack (a movie about the late race car driver, Dale Earnhardt Sr.–here’s the video) Here’s an amateur video of a performance while he was on a Wal-mart tour (“Found” recorded by Josh Gracin). He has a CMT music page full of performances for the country music channel. He’s already got a fan base. Here’s Brent’s about.com page and MySpace.
