Album Notes
I love finding and creating amusingly flawed and human characters from the hapless, to the headstrong, to the foolish, who somehow find their own path, or not, often in a humorus way. With results that may be unintended or a right turn from where they started. The songs on "Redneck Ear Candy" are musically derived from the country songs of the seventies, but I conjured the characters in the here and now. From song to song, each as different from the others as can be. The poor fellow in "I'm Like the Perfect Country Song Tonight", whose wife has left and who doesn't know quite what to do with himself as he kills time. The two guys in "Brand New Air Mattress", drinking and commiserating, because they only have each other. The first has a place for the other to stay because he is divorced: the other is spending the night because his wife has booted him out, and there is no place else to go. The young lady in "Redneck Ear Candy", a consummate fan of country music, enamored of the stars, who in the end chooses a very different type of mate. And the fellow in "Never Do More Than One Stupid Thing at a Time", who never learns that unrestrained behavior will surely get you in trouble.

i recorded the "Redneck Ear Candy" EP at Yellow Dog Studios in Austin TX which was produced and engineered by Dave Percefull. Pedal Steel player Kim Deschamps, guitarist Eric Tarr, bass player George Reiff and drummer Josh Center are all studio aces who make the songs sparkle and shine.

All of these songs great great reactions from audiences, and some have become favorites of people here in Portland, OR.

Here are what some folks have said about my songs.

"I love Tom's songs....they are well written with a classic heartfelt style and wonderful humor". Dave Percefull, Producer/Engineer - Yellow Dog Studios, Austin TX

"I loved your stuff." Jimmy Lee Webb, Luckenbach TX

"You are a master of words, and I am sure you must have plenty more like that." Steve Gillette, Nashville Songwriter

"Hearing Tom Arnold's "I'm Like the Perfect Country Song Tonight" took me right back to the wellspring of what country music once was, and should still be. Unpretentious, dead-honest songs that reach out and tell the listener's own story for them. That's what country music ought to do, and like Hank Sr., Porter, Dolly, Merle, Loretta and others, that's what Mr. Arnold has managed to accomplish so well with this song....Putting him in very good company indeed." James Hurley, Los Angeles songwriter

"Oh my goodness I loved your music. You took us all by surprise! Your music is honest, unpretentious, very funny. Not always politically correct, but truthful." Suzan Lundy, owner, McLundy's Green Room, Brightwood OR

"Tom Arnold, the High Tech Redneck." Marc Nassar - KMUZ Radio 88.5 FM

"Tom's a lot of fun. If you get a chance - go." Bradd Swank

With that, I will step out. I hope that you enjoy these songs.
