On Friday night (6/3), Trent Harmon was back in his home state Mississippi to play the Tupelo Elvis festival. The American Idol winner performed the FULL BAND debut of his upcoming single, “There’s a Girl,” a couple of Elvis covers, and tunes from his American Idol run.

A studio version of the new song has not been released yet, although an acoustic rendition of “There’s a Girl” was unveiled during a radio appearance last week.  It’s cool to have a full band version of the song–co written with with Jimmy Robbins and Laura Veltz–as it is likely closer in sound to the recording that will be released to digital outlets and radio soon. Trent co-wrote the song

Trent headlined ELVIS fest, which meant, of course, a couple of covers by Tupelo’s favorite son, Elvis Presley. The singer performed a sweet acoustic version of “Can’t Help Falling in Love.”

Trent also performed “That’s All Right Mama,” an Arthur Crudup blues tune Elvis covered and transformed into a hit. Trent’s rendition owes more to Dylan than Elvis, I think!
