Parker McCollum – Artist of the Week
I am looking forward to seeing Parker McCollum. This 22 year old who has already proven himself to be an exceptional talent as he comes to San Angelo this Friday Night in concert at Midnight Rodeo.
He has already released two projects and received great reviews on both. The first was an EP called 'A Red Town View' which came out back in 2013.
His current album is called 'The Limestone Kid' which was released earlier this year. Parker wrote 9 of the 11 songs on this album which has received quite a bit of air play, especially on the Americana, and Texas Music Charts. 'The Limestone Kid' is actually his nickname which he picked up having grown up in Limestone County, Texas.
He moved to Austin and attended the University of Texas while making numerous connections in the Austin music scene as well as continuing to write, play venues, and eventually record his music. Parker is touring all over Texas and surrounding states these days.
His sound has been described in numerous ways: Country, Americana, Blues, Roots Rock, Soul, and Folk Rock. Perhaps it's a blend of all of these influences that is making a name for Parker McCollum everywhere he plays.
Here is one of his most popular music videos called 'Meet You In The Middle' to get you ready for Saturday Night at Midnight Rodeo. Join me for the show as we broadcast live on Kickin' Country 103.1
