11. PARKER MCCOLLUM
2020 is poised to be a breakout year for Parker, fans and media alike continue to praise his altruistic writing skills and ability to build his own fan base. The 27-year-old entrepreneurially-spirited artist bridges the gap between Texas’ homegrown music scene and Nashville’s country-industry headquarters.
In just a few short years, Parker has toured extensively throughout the US most recently with his first sold-out stop at Nashville’s Exit/In including special guest Kylie Morgan. Additional recent sold-out shows include Billy Bob’s in Fort Worth, TX, Grizzly Rose in Denver, CO, George’s Majestic in Fayetteville, AR, Cain’s Ballroom in Tulsa, OK, Stubb’s in Austin, TX, The Jones Assembly in Oklahoma City, OK and White Oak Music Hall in Houston, TX.
MCA Nashville’s hot newcomer Parker McCollum recently released the music video for his nostalgic tune “Pretty Heart.” The cinematic video was shot by Carlos Ruiz in New York City and features Parker reminiscing about a past love interest and the consequential breakup. Written by Parker along with Randy Montana, “Pretty Heart” has accumulated impressive streaming numbers since its release in September adding to Parker’s almost 200 million total streams.
