Trent Willmon is an American country music artist. Active since 1998 as a songwriter in Nashville, Tennessee, Willmon was signed to Columbia Records in 2004. He released two albums for the label (2004's Trent Willmon and 2006's A Little More Livin') and charted six singles on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs charts before exiting Columbia in 2006. A third album, entitled Broken In, was released on the independent Compadre label in February 2008.

Trent Willmon was born in Amarillo, Texas, on March 6, 1973. He grew up on a ranch near Afton, Texas, without a television and only one radio station and thus learned to read at a young age. He spent his first years of high school studying agriculture and winning statewide awards in 4H and FFA. His focus started to change when his mother bought him his first guitar at age 16. He soaked up the West Texas music scene and began sitting in with local favorites like the Maines Brothers Band and Jody Nix, among others.

He attended South Plains College and studied agriculture and animal science. While there, he quickly learned to play the upright bass and began touring the South with a bluegrass band, then moved to Nashville to pursue a songwriting career. Willmon was the first writer signed to the staff of Sea Gayle Music, an EMI co-publishing company started by Chris Dubois, Frank Rogers and Brad Paisley. In addition to music, Willmon owns his own catering company, works leather and trains horses. He also built his own guitar and barbecue smoker.

Willmon released the single "Beer Man" in early 2004. Rogers produced his debut album, released in June 2004. Two years later, he released A Little More Livin'.
