One of Country music’s biggest newcomers, Parker McCollum, just wrapped up his weekend by bringing a childhood dream to life – opening for one of his personal idols and Country music legend, George Strait. Hitting the stage at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, MO on Saturday, July 30th, McCollum, alongside Country superstars Chris Stapleton and Little Big Town, fired up the crowd for one unforgettable show.
“Regardless of what anyone thinks of me or my music, I strive to do my absolute best on my terms – but honestly, I’ve always had this secret hope that ‘The King’ approves of what I’m doing. He is the standard and it’s an honor to share the stage with him,” says McCollum.
The show marks yet another impressive accomplishment in Parker’s young career. Since exploding onto the Country music scene in 2020 with his critically acclaimed and top-selling debut Country EP of the year, Hollywood Gold EP, McCollum has achieved two #1 singles, the Double-Platinum selling, “Pretty Heart,” and its follow-up single, “To Be Loved By You,” made is Grand Ole Opry debut, broke records at the iconic Texas venue Whitewater Amphitheater – selling out a three-night engagement, performed for a sold-out crowd for his debut at RODEOHOUSTON and earned his first ACM Award for New Male Artist of the Year and his first CMT Award for “Breakthrough Video of the Year.”
This Friday, August 5th, McCollum will be releasing his latest single, “Handle On You.”
