Biography

Trent Brooks is a small town musician who plays a big country sound. Hailing from Lehi, Utah he’s set to be the next voice on the Country Music charts .

Brooks has been belting out country songs since he was five years old, a full three years before he’d ever lay his hands on his first guitar. Music is a natural talent thanks to his father’s side of the family. He also grew up idolizing musicians such as Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, George Jones and Buck Owens and the Buckaroos.

During his teens, Trent Brooks discovered the Southern Rock Greats like Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Marshall Tucker Band, Black Oak Arkansas, The Outlaws, The Allman Brothers Band and many more. He was instantly hooked and practiced hard to hone his own musical edge! His father was shocked, “When you were young, I couldn’t get you to practice…now, all you want to do is play that damn guitar!”

Eventually, he would relocate to Montana. There, he would marry and concentrate his efforts on raising a family. Brooks thought his music life was over…until the day a local musician asked to join him onstage. And just like that, it all rushed back to him just like it never left.

Currently on stage as part of The Hired Gunns Band, he is joined by vocalist and bass player Jason James; vocalist, fiddle and electric mandolin player Alex Ruiz (schedule permitting); vocalist, lead guitar player, and keyboardist Eric John; and drummer/percussionist Derek Boberg. Together, they bring a whole new dynamic to the style and sound Brooks discovered years ago.

The Hired Gunns are currently sponsored by Miller Lite Beer.

Trent Brooks' song "Bar Room Roses" is featured in the full length independent film "Reborn," and his song "B-R-O-K-E-N-H-E-A-R-T" is featured in the full length independant film "Tommorow Will Be,"

Like any true country singer, Brooks sings, and writes honest tales of a simple, working man’s life. “I think of my music is an element that allows people that have never met before to have some common ground with each other,” he explains. “Feelings, events, and things that make a great song are common threads through all people and allow them to connect on an emotional level with music as the catalyst.”

Trent Brooks is currently writing songs for his debut album release date TBA.

Lyrics

Bar Room Roses

Written By: Trent Brooks

BAR ROOM ROSES

IT’S ONE THIRTY…SHE JUST WALKED IN
SHE’S REAL PRETTY…BUT SHE’S TOO THIN
SHE SELLS FLOWERS…TO MAKE ENDS MEET
TO PUT FOOD ON THE TABLE SO HER BOY CAN EAT

CHORUS 1:

SHE SELLS BAR ROOM ROSES AGAIN AND AGAIN
PUTS UP WITH THE BOOZE, THE DRUNKS AND THE SMOKE
‘TIL 2AM
THREE FIFTY A PIECE, FOR SEVEN NIGHTS A WEEK
SELLIN’ BAR ROOM ROSES WITH A KISS ON THE CHEEK

-BREAK-

HER ONE ROOM APARTMENT…AND TOO MANY BILLS
A DAY JOB AT THE RESTRAUNT…NOT ENOUGH IN THE TILL
THEN IT’S OFF TO HER MOMMAS WHERE SHE TAKES HER BOY
SHE DOES IT ALL FOR HIM, THE SHINE IN HER EYE
HER LITTLE PRIDE AND JOY

CHORUS 2:

AND THEN IT’S BAR ROOM ROSES ‘TIL 2AM
PUTS UP WITH THE BOOZE, THE DRUNKS, AND THE SMOKE
AGAIN AND AGAIN
SEVEN NIGHTS A WEEK, FOR THREE-FIFTY A PIECE
SELLIN’ BAR ROOM ROSES WITH A KISS ON THE CHEEK

TAG:
SOMEDAY HER PRINCE WILL COME…AND TAKE HER AWAY
STILL SHE’S GONNA KEEP WORKIN’ UNTIL THAT DAY

REPEAT CHORUS 1: (MODULATE TO A)
