Born in Amarillo, Texas, on March 6, 1973, Trent Willmon grew up on a ranch near Afton, Texas. He had no television and only one radio station which prompted him to learn to read at an early age. His mother bought him his first guitar when he was 16. In the years to come, he soaked up the West Texas music scene.
Willmon 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. He soon moved to Nashville to pursue a songwriting career. He was the first writer signed to the staff of Sea Gayle Music, an EMI co-publishing company founded by Chris Dubois, Frank Rogers, and Brad Paisley. In addition to music, Willmon owns his own catering company, works leather, and trains horses.
Willmon released the single "Beer Man" in early 2004 from his debut album of the same year. Two years later, he released A Little More Livin' with the single "On Again Tonight." In 2008, Trent released Broken In.
