Touring in support of 2017’s “Probably Wrong” album, Parker McCollum will hit the stage at Dos Amigos on April 21.
McCollum’s “Hell of a Year” video and single came out at the end of 2017 and he has been on tour for months including April stops at San Marcos, Waco, the Chilifest Music Festival and Lubbock’s Hope Fest with Casey Donahew.
McCollum’s a draw on Spotify with more than 60,000 listeners a month and millions of streams of his music.
His bio on his website (parkermccollum.com) details that he was raised to work hard. “If you’re going to do something and you’re not going to do it 100 percent you shouldn’t do it all,” he stated on his website.
The Austin-based singer said the results of the hard work is worth the occasional pain in the process. “That’s where I find my identity,” McCollum, who broke out with his critically acclaimed 2013 debut “The Limestone Kid” and now returns with “Probably Wrong,” says of penning soul-baring songs. “It just takes over,” he stated on his website of the songwriting muse.
The 10-track LP, written after the dissolution of a long-term relationship. “I don’t talk about my feelings very often,” he noted online. “I keep a lot of things in most of the time.”
In the wake of The Limestone Kid’s release and its lead single “Meet You in the Middle” finding success at regional radio, McCollum says “in the blink of an eye” his life drastically changed. The then-22-year-old went from a life of hanging out on his couch and passing his days strumming the guitar to traveling from one gig to the next.
