Biography

Nation singer Trent Summar makes zero bones regarding the design of music he has: “It isn’t a cutesy take a look at lifestyle outside the town limits or even a music retro period warp. It’s muscle tissue car nation. ZZ Top on the honky tonk jukebox nation. It’s ass-shaking, BBQ-eating, waterbed sleeping, above-ground pool nation.” That is admittedly from step using the pop-country mainstream of 2000, but that is clearly a trend that Tennessee indigenous doesn’t brain one little bit. His first music group, Hank Flamingo, documented one recording for Giant Information to reviews that are positive. They came out on NIGHT TIME With Conan O’Brien, experienced radio airplay along with a video in rotation on CMT, but had been best known for his or her riotous concert events.

#Quote
1 I never write songs as hit records or anything like that. I just write them because I love them. And I've never written a song for an artist. You know, when people say, "Oh, you wrote for Tina [Turner] and you wrote for Whitney [Houston]," I always wrote 'em for me, you know. Then the artist does them their way, fine, no problem -- but I wrote 'em for me. They become what I think are really unique songs, because you wrote them for you. What I think is that there is nobody more unique than oneself.
2 [when asked how he feels about his son Albert Hammond Jr.'s current success with the band The Strokes] I'm extremely happy for him, for myself and for the rest of my family for my son's success with The Strokes. I'm also very happy for the rest of the guys because I feel like they're my sons, too, you know, because I've spent a lot of time with them. I give them a lot of advice, and I still feel that whenever they need that little something extra, I'm there for them, and they love it. They hug me, I really feel like a dad, man. Not just to the five guys, but to the six guys because I feel like a dad to their manager, too. Their manager is one of the greatest guys I have ever met in my life.
