"Earnhardt releasing CD"

A musician who grew up in Montgomery County will soon celebrate the release of his own country music CD.
Trey Earnhardt grew up in Mt. Sterling and graduated from Montgomery County High School.
Now in Lexington, Earnhardt plans to celebrate the release of his CD, 9 p.m. - 1 a.m. Friday, April 25, at Lynagh's Shamrocks in Lexington, just off Richmond Road on Patchen Drive.
Earnhardt recorded several songs, including "Cruisin'," a song about cruising town in Mt. Sterling.
"This was the first song I wrote for the CD, " Earnhardt said. "I wanted to write a tribute to my hometown."
Also featured on the CD is the title track "Modern Day Rebel," a blues-country style shuffle and "Gettin' Paid to Fish," a breezy country tune about a favorite lakeside pastime.
The cruising song on the CD isn't the only local tie connected with the album.
The CD itself was recorded in Montgomery County at John Vice and Brad Alford's Summertime Studios.
"John and I grew up together and he's a great producer," Earnhardt said. "He knew what I wanted the songs to sound like."
Earnhardt's CD production follows several years of playing in small clubs and restaurants in the area. - Mt. Sterling Advocate • April 17, 2003

Feeling a bit camera shy


Trey was born in Richmond, Virginia, on Dec. 27, 1974. He moved to Kentucky when he was 7 years old and began playing piano, then moved on to guitar. Trey listened to a lot of Lynyrd Skynyrd and Tom Petty, as well as Keith Whitley and Hank Williams Jr. — therefore his sound is definitely country but with a kick. Unlike most country artists, whose songs revolve around a man crying because his woman left him, Trey's songs have an attitude like - "Hey, my woman left me. Oh, well, I never wanted her anyway."
