Parker McCollum comes from a no-nonsense, hard-working family. His was the sort of upbringing where “if you’re going to do something and you’re not going to do it one-hundred percent; you shouldn’t do it all.” It’s why this 26-year-old treats each song he writes with a painstaking level of dedication, reverence, and — as he readily admits — even a bit of obsession.

Parker says when a particular melody, lyric or emotion tugs at him he might stay in his room for days working on it. He can’t help himself.

That’s because, for the Austin-based singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist, the result is worth the painstaking process. Parker — who broke out with the revealing and critically adored 2013 debut The Limestone Kid and returned with the acclaimed Probably Wrong — says, “It’s like the songwriting muse takes over. I don’t choose when it hits me, but when it does, I pay attention — and it’s always worth the focus it asks of me.“ …

I like his music, his style and his work ethic
— ACM Chairman Ed Warm, on naming Parker McCollum the Breakout Star of 2019

“‘The whole package’… handsome and confident, but not pretentious… talented and smart, yet still humble. He’s an old soul with a laid-back Austin vibe and can write a heartbreak song that is sure to strike a chord with anyone who has ever loved and lost. Wrap that up with a slightly mischievous smile, a tucked-in t-shirt and a mamma-raised-him-right ‘yes ma’am,’ and you have one of the hottest new acts in country music.”
