NASHVILLE SINGER/SONGWRITER SHOWCASE
with Arlos Smith, Trent Tomblinson, David Chamberlain

Downtown Stage, Elkins Town Square
315 Railroad Ave.
Rain location: Elkins High School, Beverly 5-lane

Singer/songwriter Trent Tomlinson is one of those rare performers whose music is as straight-ahead and unpretentious as he is. “My songs,” he says simply, “are real-life situations with kick-ass guitar.”
“It’s ‘open a beer, sit in a lawn chair, let’s have a party’ country,” he says of his music. “At the same time, the songs say, ‘I have the ability to love you, to understand’ and at the end of the day, all that matters is Mama and Daddy and going to heaven. That pretty much sums everything up.”

Arlos Smith is a songwriter in Nashville. Smith says “I have been lucky enough to make my living writing songs for folks like John Michael Montgomery, Rascal Flatts, Trent Tomlinson, James Otto, Michael Peterson, Steve Holy, David Kersh, Neal McCoy etc. The former SESAC Songwriter of the Year and writer of such country hits as “Mayberry” for Rascal Flatts and “Home To You” for John Michael Montgomery, has signed with The Music Group for exclusive publishing representation.

Music has been a driving passion all of David Chamberlain’s life and after a long interlude during which he was alternately a soldier and a lawman, he has finally been able to pursue his dream of a music career. David’s love for country music and his desire to be a famous country singer never waned, but two events put his dream on hold and changed his life forever. First, he joined the army in 1986, and was stationed for two years in Germany. Later, he was assigned to the Big Red One and stationed in Iraq during Desert Storm. Second, he became a law enforcement officer for twenty years. David knows the wounds and scars of battle, those that are visible and those that are not. He knows from experience that freedom is not free. This thought inspired his song, ‘Freedom Don’t Come Free’.
