Parker McCollum with Flatland Cavalry and Lainey Wilson
[October 2, 2021] A singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and dedicated road warrior, Parker McCollum began building a following in his native Texas with 2015’s The Limestone Kid.
The album track “Meet You in The Middle” became a hit on Texas’ regional radio chart — no small feat for an independent, 22-year-old musician — but it was the album’s widely-acclaimed follow-up, “Probably Wrong,” that helped Parker find national success. Compared to John Mayer and Jason Isbell by Rolling Stone, Parker supported the album with a string of sold-out shows, bringing record-breaking crowds to venues like San Angelo’s RiverStage and two sold-out Billy Bob’s along the way.
Born in Conroe, TX, and currently based in Austin, the 28-year-old entrepreneurially-spirited artist bridges the gap between Texas’ homegrown music scene and Nashville’s country-industry headquarters. His songwriting, which has been hailed by The Austin Chronicle for “carrying on the traditions of Texas music without pretension or referring to pickup trucks,” earned him a publishing deal with Warner/Chappell Nashville in May 2018 and a recording deal with Universal Music Group Nashville in June 2019.
Parker just released his new EP, Hollywood Gold, which is named after a horse his grandfather owned decades ago. Hollywood Gold includes Parker’s debut single “Pretty Heart” which has already cracked Top 10 on the country radio chart averaging almost 4 Million streams a week and was recently certified Gold. Parker has been named an artist to watch by Rolling Stone, Billboard, SiriusXM, CMT and more. Learn More
