Simple, Honest, & Pure Country Music



               By Brenda L. Madden

Over the years, a simple, honest and pure traditional country music sound has echoed throughout the hills of West Virginia and brought many artists to the center stage including Wilma Lee & Stoney Cooper, Red Sovine, Little Jimmy Dickens, Johnny Paycheck, Connie Smith, Kathy Mattea and Brad Paisley.  This fertile musical training ground is also home to country music newcomer, Thomas K. White. Born and raised in Gilbert, West Virginia, he is a singer/songwriter that truly has country music running through his veins, as he notes, "I just love country music."......

Influenced by artists  such as Hank Willaims and Merle Haggard as well as songwriters Dallas Frazier and Sonny Throckmorton, it's no surprise that his music has such a traditional style.  Thomas notes, "Traditional music is where my heart is for sure."  Just reading the song titles like "Put The Hurtin' In A Song," "Turned To Steel And Stone," "Big Train" and "One More Hillbilly" from his first album, White's Diner, makes you think traditional without even hearing the first chord.  And his second album, Livin' To Run, Runnin' To Live follows that same path with titles like "I Need A Honky Tonk," "A Happy Tune," "Thank You Lord," "Like Me And You" and "This Old Heart. ...

With two albums already behind him, he's excitedly working on his third which will also be full of self-penned tunes.  Recording again in Nasville, Tennessee, this project is slated to be ready for release in early 2013.  One can expect more of what has become his signature sound- hardcore, honky tonk, and traditional coutry music- simple, honest and pure.  Perhaps Thomas says it best, "I just try to write with feeling more than anything."

In addition to the new album next year, Thomas is looking forward to performing live, meeting fans and further sharpening his songwriting skills.  Surrounded by his wife, daughter and family, Thomas K. White is sure to continue on his path to success by writing and singing songs that will carry forward the already rich country music history of West Virginia.
