Congrats to Parker McCollum who is at number-one this week with “To Be Loved By You” – one of the 10-tracks from his album, Gold Chain Cowboy.
Parker, who co-wrote “To Be Loved By You” with Rhett Akins, says “You know, writing with Rhett, he’s probably one of my favorite people, he definitely is one of my favorite people to write with. He loves to hunt, he loves to fish, and he loves really good country songs. And so, any time we get into a room together, even from the first time we ever hung out and tried to write, we had a lot in common. So, usually we’ll talk for like an hour, showing each other pictures of deers at our ranches or some fish we caught or something, and then we’ll get around to writing a song. And every time we’ve written, I’ve walked away really digging whatever came out of that session. And he’s just a great guy – he’s a Hall of Famer now – so, it’s just another kind of pinch me moment to get to write with people like that.”
This is Parker’s second number-one (after “Pretty Heart” which topped the chart in 2020) and it follows his sold-out show at Rodeo Houston this past weekend.
73,000 tickets sold out last night. And To Be Loved By You went #1 this weekend. Idk what else to say. To Country Radio and to Houston, TX… THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! pic.twitter.com/8SifMLpEoK— Parker McCollum (@ParkerMcCollum) March 13, 2022
