Parker McCollum wants it both ways. Restless soul who can slam dunk a major venue. Texas spirit who can exist on mainstream country radio. Songwriter with a sense of turpentine and truth singing for people whose life isn’t quite the truckbed/field party revel much of country music would have you believe.
Coming up in Texas, selling out Stubbs, Billy Bobs and Nutty Browns, the brash young man with a taste for Rodney Crowell, Todd Snider and James McMurtry had just enough Houston gangster rap in the water to develop a swagger that’s miles from the good ole boy patina so many of his peers embody. But don’t let that bravado fool you, his passion for songwriting runs deep.
Multi-Platinum selling artist, Parker McCollum, is announcing additional tour dates for this fall, blazing a path as one of the most exciting live acts in country music. Parker is taking his electrifying show to the far reaches of the U.S., including Alaska, where he will be performing for the first time. Praised as “a genuinely thoughtful, engaging performer” (Houston Chronicle) and “a solid singer, committed to the material, with enough stagecraft and country hunk charisma to connect with his audience” (Lincoln Journal Star), Parker’s recent sold-out shows include Detroit, Cincinnati, and more.
