This Nashville Sunday Night was both a celebration and a killer performance. 3rd and Lindsley hosted Trent Dabbs’ CD release party for his tenth full-length studio album. Trent definitely did not hold back as he showcased material from The Optimist, songs that capture his renowned lyricism. His songs are intimate, honest, edgy, bold, and reflective. The title track characterizes a moment where Trent decided he was going to place his passions and his craft above everything else, and in doing so, not necessarily expecting success.
Trent has a long history of co-writing with other fantastic musicians both in and outside of Nashville. However, he proved with this new album and performance that his own personal story is powerful and tragic, compassionate and dissonant, and above all, genuine.
