A singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and dedicated road warrior, Parker McCollum beganbuilding a following in his native Texas with 2015'sThe Limestone Kid. The album track "Meet You inThe 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 byRolling Stone, Parkersupported the album with a string of sold-out shows, bringing record-breaking crowds to venues likeSan 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 artistbridges the gap between Texas' homegrown music scene and Nashville's country-industryheadquarters. His songwriting, which has been hailed byThe Austin Chroniclefor "carrying on thetraditions of Texas music without pretension or referring to pickup trucks," earned him a publishingdeal with Warner/Chappell Nashville in May 2018 and a recording deal with Universal Music GroupNashville in June 2019.
