"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, Host - Open Mike, Luckenbach, TX

“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, Songwriter

“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

"We’re not sure anybody has ever performed a song linking modern day buying and selling of political office to George Washington before Arnold started singing 'Swilling the Planters with Bumbo.' The humorous tune describes how the father of our country won an election to the Virginia House of Burgesses in 1758 by plying voters with rum. 'They voted for him with the taste on their tongue,' Arnold sings."

– Rob Cullivan/Gresham Outlook

“This balladeer employs country, pop, blues and rock and even raps when he’s up for it. A finalist in the 2006 Portland Songwriters Association’s “Top Ten Best Singer Songwriters,” Arnold placed second in the Artichoke Community Music’s 2007 Songwriting Contest. Arnold’s songs include “She’s Got Coke in Her Pants,” a humorous Jimmy-Buffett-like take on a woman just out of rehab trying to return to the party scene with decidedly mixed results, as well as “Never Do More Than One Stupid Thing,” a waltzing country number that counsels folks to resist the urge to up the ante when engaging in irresponsible behavior, like arguing with a judge about your rights when you’re clearly in the wrong.”

– Rob Cullivan/Gresham Outlook

“A pop savvy Americana artist”

– Scott Docherty/Redhare

“You are a master of words, and I am sure you must have plenty more like that.”

- Steve Gillette/Nashville songwriter

“When Arnold takes stage he entertains so there’s really no question about the outcome… you’ll laugh, you’ll cry but most of all you’ll want to hear him again!”

- Dan’l McIllhenny, songwriter

“You were able to stay true to yourself while adapting to a contemporary style. “Pullya Pantsup” is a winner! Why are you here? You don’t need it. Your writing is there.”

- Dev Singh, jazz musician on “Pullya Pantsup”

“Terrific title and smart lyrics. Great variation of music.”

- Peter Vaughn Shaver, Copyright Attorney on “Me and Your Boyfriend are Both Singing the Blues”

“Powerful lyrics – great arrangement. Perhaps timeless lyrically – familiar. I would buy this song!”

- Ginger Caviness, Booking Agent on “Hidden Hearts”

“The most commercial song I’ve heard so far tonight.”

- Dean Baskerville/sound engineer on “Savannah”, at Songwriters Showcase
