Singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Parker McCollum will ring in the new year at Dickies Arena, as he’s set to perform at the Fort Worth venue on Dec. 31.
Tickets for the concert start at $29.50 and go on sale on Friday, Aug. 6 at 10 a.m. at Ticketmaster.com.
A dedicated road warrior, Parker McCollum began building a following in his native Texas with 2015’s The Limestone Kid. The album track “Meet You in The Middle” became a hit on Texas’ regional radio chart — no small feat for an independent, 22-year-old musician — but it was the album’s widely-acclaimed follow-up, Probably Wrong, that helped Parker find national success. Compared to John Mayer and Jason Isbell by Rolling Stone, Parker supported the album with a string of sold-out shows, bringing record-breaking crowds to venues like San Angelo’s RiverStage and two sold-out Billy Bob’s along the way.
Born in Conroe, TX, and currently based in Austin, the 28-year-old entrepreneurially-spirited artist bridges the gap between Texas’ homegrown music scene and Nashville’s country-industry headquarters. His songwriting, which has been hailed by The Austin Chronicle for “carrying on the traditions of Texas music without pretension or referring to pickup trucks,” earned him a publishing deal with Warner/Chappell Nashville in May 2018 and a recording deal with Universal Music Group Nashville in June 2019.
Parker just released his new EP, Hollywood Gold, which is named after a horse his grandfather owned decades ago. Hollywood Gold includes Parker’s debut single “Pretty Heart” which has already cracked Top 10 on the country radio chart averaging almost 4 Million streams a week and was recently certified Gold. Parker has been named an artist to watch by Rolling Stone, Billboard, SiriusXM, CMT and more with American Songwriter noting, “The Texas native teeters on the edge of next-level superstardom, taking cues from rule breakers like Chris Stapleton and Kacey Musgraves. 2020 will be his long-overdue breakout”
