Up-and-coming singer-songwriter Parker McCollum has just released his brand new single “Hell of a Year,” from his latest album ‘Probably Wrong.’ This is his second full length album released November 10th independently, and produced by Grammy Award-winner Lloyd Maines (Dixie Chicks, Terri Hendrix, Robert Earl Keen).
Earning an impressive 100,000 streams a week and over 1.3 million views on YouTube all on his own, “Hell of a Year” follows the successful debut single off the album, “I Can’t Breathe.”
The Austin, TX native comes from the belief, “If you’re going to do something and you’re not going to do it one-hundred percent you shouldn’t do it all.” His hard work and diligence in his music reflect just that. This new project is the follow up to his critically acclaimed debut album, ‘The Limestone Kid,’ which brought two of my favorites, “Meet Me In The Middle,” and “Galveston Bay.”
The video for “Hell of a Year,” shows pure heartbreak with the deepest emotions possible. Long term relationships can go down in flames, which give many songwriters a blank canvas to create and delve into the honesty of the hurt. “It was the hardest song I’ve ever written as far as being that honest. But after doing so I could go back to being happy for a little bit,” says Parker.
Parker’s goal is to never remain stagnant, to always strive in being creative. “My goal is to totally evolve and reinvent myself with each record I make,” he explains. “It’s about changing with each record and really not giving a shit. And if you can pull that off, well, that’s a pretty special thing.”
I see a brilliant future for this very talented artist who not only pulls you in with his honesty in song writing but his passion in doing so. To catch up with Parker drop by his website and try to catch him on the road on his 2018 Winter Tour.
