The final winner of the reality singing competition American Idol, Trent Harmon, will be playing K-Frog’s 27th Birthday Bash at Morongo Casino Resort and Spa on Friday, February 27th, and it’s quite likely he’ll be sharing a few songs from his debut album with the K-Frog family.
“I really just want to trust the people around me, because sometimes I don’t necessarily know exactly what I want to do,” he admits in a statement from his label in regards to recording his debut album. “Now, whenever I say that it’s not that I’m really unsure of the direction I want to go, I just want to make sure that the direction we go is accepted across the whole broad spectrum that we’re trying to cover.
“We’re trying to create a new lane,” he explains. “You know, I don’t necessarily just sing country. So, when we listen to these songs in pitch meetings and with A&R staff, we’re really listening with a new ear, you know, not your typical, ‘Hey, we’re going to make this kind of album right here. We know who you are,’ because the people that loved me on the show – they don’t necessarily know me as the individual artist off of ‘Idol.’
“So, we’re really trying to pick special songs and write special songs for that purpose.”
