Parker McCollum Is Making His Parents Pretty Proud With “Pretty Heart”

Parker McCollum has a top 5 hit on his hands with his debut single “Pretty Heart.” The track is from his recently released EP, Hollywood Gold, and the success it’s having couldn’t make Parker any happier, “It’s honestly really truly just humbling.”

But, that success is not just for him…he shares it with his parents. After making a choice to pursue country music, Parker says this is a great validation of his decision, and he makes sure to update his parents every time “Pretty Heart” takes another step closer to the number-one spot, “I’ll send a screenshot to my parents, my mom and my dad, and I’ll be like, ‘Look how well it’s doing so quickly.’ And I think for them that’s really cool ’cause when I didn’t go to college…trying to play country music, I think they lost a little bit of sleep some of those nights wondering where the hell I was and what I was doing. And so I think it kinda puts their mind at ease a little bit to know that maybe I wasn’t crazy for trying to do this.”

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde’s This Town Talks tour gets rolling next month in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Then for the next 7 months she’ll be crisscrossing this nation playing shows from Georgia to Montana and everywhere in between.

So, with all that travel, and different locations, packing for a tour can present some challenges. Ashley shares one basic piece of advice when it comes to preparing for the road, “At first, learning how to pack for on tour…I really didn’t do a good job. I guess maybe I thought I was leaving for summer camp. So, I would spend a couple of weeks where I overpacked, and a couple of weeks where I under packed. Just let me tell you…if you have to choose between the two – overpack. You can put those clothes away when you get back.”
