MCA Nashville’s exciting newcomer Parker McCollum has released a new track titled “Like A Cowboy”. Written by Chris Stapleton and Al Anderson, “Like A Cowboy” marks the first outside cut for the Austin, Texas native.
“When I first heard ‘Like A Cowboy’ I probably listened to it 15 times in a row,” shares Parker. “It made me think of my Grandpa who would have loved this song. He was one of my best friends and he believed in me so much that I know he’d be happy to see everything that’s happened in my career.”
Parker credits his Grandfather, Bobby Yancey, as a major inspiration and recently shared with Billboard how their special bond shaped his work ethic, persistence and determination while pursuing his dreams. After hearing “Like A Cowboy,” Parker felt a deep connection to the song as if it was a snapshot of his personality and upbringing.
Parker just announced that his first official single to country radio will be the nostalgic “Pretty Heart,” which has already garnered 25 million streams and cracked Top 40 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart before it goes for adds on April 27. Parker recently released the music video for “Pretty Heart” which can be viewed HERE.
