singer/songwriter Trey Odum is the perfect combination of southern
charm, a powerful voice and a unique songwriting philosophy. While Odum

at heart. Throughout his career, he has been influenced by country
greats such as Keith Urban, Eric Church, and Brooks and Dunn. However,

about what I know. It is not about always being happy or always being
deep, it's just about being real.” In like fashion, Trey and his band

night. "We want to play music that speaks to us, and that both we and
the crowd enjoy. That way, everyone has a great time. We always want to
make sure everyone in the room feels like a part of the party."
