Remember her name

PARKER McCOLLUM GOLD CHAIN COWBOY ALBUM AUDIO TOOLKIT.

We have compiled an array of content — a variety of liners and soundbites – from PARKER McCOLLUM to equip you with everything you might need to put together your own album radio special; roll-out tracks leading up to –and following — the release of his new record, GOLD CHAIN COWBOY, to use in news feeds, radio specials and much more. Check out all of details below (including audio liners and soundbites, as well as transcriptions) to create your own content surrounding Parker’s new album release.

Parker McCollum wants it both ways. Restless soul who can slam dunk a major venue. Texas spirit who can exist on mainstream country radio. Songwriter with a sense of turpentine and truth singing for people whose life isn’t quite the truckbed/field party revel much of country music would have you believe.

Coming up in Texas, selling out Stubbs, Billy Bobs and Nutty Browns, the brash young man with a taste for Rodney Crowell, Todd Snider and James McMurtry had just enough Houston gangster rap in the water to develop a swagger that’s miles from the good ole boy patina so many of his peers embody. But don’t let that bravado fool you, his passion for songwriting runs deep.
“I want to have Luke Bryan success, singing Chris Knight-caliber songs,” he declares. “To have longevity, you can’t sacrifice integrity to get on the radio. People know the difference, look at Willie, look at Strait. I knew I could do Texas and never leave, or come to Nashville and do the pop-country thing. My goal is to ride the middle.”

He exhales as he says this, takes in the landscape. He’s already notched a platinum-certified #1 with the banged-up declaration of love and betrayal “Pretty Heart.”

SAM WILLIAMS REVEALS VIDEO FOR “10-4.”

Today, Nashville singer/songwriter Sam Williams shares the video for “10-4.” Directed by Kwaku Ospinto and shot in the remote woods of Joelton, Tenn. and at Marrowbone Lake in Nashville, Tenn., the video captures the feeling of idealizing a perfect love that can seem so pure and simple, but in reality, is a lot more complex.

Watch the video for “10-4” now HERE.

 

Listening to ‘10-4’ as a song, you may not think of it as idealistic or wishful, it may just sound feel-good,” says Williams. “With this video, I wanted to explore the complexity of relationships and the idea that things are not always as they seem. It’s not clear if the relationship portrayed is real or was all a dream of what love could be like. I love the abstractness of the video and hope it’s not what the listener would expect.

Originally released in May, “10-4” was co-written by Sam and Daniel Tashian (Kacey Musgraves, Lee Ann Womack), and produced by Jaren Johnston (Keith Urban, Thomas Rhett).

Earlier this month, Williams announced that his debut album, Glasshouse Children, is set to arrive August 20 via Mercury Nashville. Ahead of the release, he shared a brand-new song, “Kids (Feat. Keith Urban).” “Kids” was written by Hank Compton, Boots Ottestad (Robbie Williams, Tim McGraw) and Eric Arejes (Tim McGraw, Thompson Square, Rachel Wammack), produced by Jaren Johnston (Keith Urban, Thomas Rhett) and features Keith Urban on electric guitar. Listen to “Kids (Feat. Keith Urban)” now HERE.

To date, Sam has shared five songs as a taste of what’s to come from Glasshouse Children — “Kids (Feat. Keith Urban)” was preceded by “10-4,” ”Can’t Fool Your Own Blood,” “SHUTEYE” and “The World: Alone,” a song he released in honor of his late sister Katie Williams’ 28th birthday. The tracks have received critical acclaim from the likes of American Songwriter, Billboard, NPR and Rolling Stone who praised “Can’t Fool Your Own Blood” as “a haunting performance worthy of his surname.”

TRAVIS DENNING IS LOOKING FORWARD TO GETTING “HIS SHREDDING ON” AS HE HITS THE ROAD WITH BROTHERS OSBORNE.

Travis Denning hits the road on Brothers Osborne‘s “We Not For Everyone Tour” Thursday (July 29th) in Philadelphia, and he cannot wait to hit the stage. He does say he’s going to have to bring it night after night as Brothers O’s John Osborne is also an incredible guitar player. (SIDENOTE: I’m looking forward to a guitar duel between the two.)

“The thing I’m most looking forward to with Brothers is just leaning in harder musically than I ever have, ‘cause we are at risk at getting our butts whupped out there every night,” says Travis. “I mean, you’re talking about one of the best touring bands in this genre, but ultimately that’s what I’m most excited about. John told me a couple of months ago, he said, ‘Don’t worry. Our fan base loves guitar solos. They love it. Lean into it.’ So, having an opportunity to really do the thing that I love so much and that made me want to even be in music, which is playing guitar, and knowing that the fans are gonna be into it. I can’t wait for that. It’s gonna be fun to get my shredding on, you know.”

Travis is making his way up the country charts with his latest song, “ABBY.”

DIERKS BENTLEY RELEASES HIS NEW SINGLE, “BEERS ON ME,” FEATURING BRELAND AND HARDY.

Multi-Platinum singer/songwriter Dierks Bentley delivers his new single “Beers On Me” featuring Breland and HARDY today as the follow up to his recent 20th career No. One hit. The collaboration finds the three trading verses about brushing off a long week with good company. The song lends its name to Bentley’s upcoming BEERS ON ME TOUR that will guarantee “a night of great music, real fan connection and a lot of fun” (Music Row), with specials guests Riley Green and Parker McCollum launching August 13th at Salt Lake City, UT’s USANA Amphitheatre. The new summertime jam “Beers On Me” feat. Breland and HARDY is now available at Country Radio and all digital retailers here.

“HARDY threw out this title and I remember immediately thinking, ‘I wish I could buy all my fans a beer.’ After the year we’ve all had, it would be nice to get the first round and say, ‘Hey, we all got some problems but we’re going to forget about them for a little while…the beers are on me,’” Bentley said. “I came back to Nashville to record the song and came across an article about Breland in the Nashville Scene. I got his number and he came in the next day and wrote and sang the third verse. It was truly an organic collaboration and I couldn’t be more proud to have him and HARDY on this song with me.”

Known as a “one of Country music’s most adventurous artists” (Billboard), Bentley’s new single “Beers On Me” was started on a writers’ retreat in Telluride over quarantine and finished back in Nashville with both Breland and HARDY contributing as writers. The track was produced by Bentley and Ross Copperman. Fans can watch a live performance of “Beers On Me” feat. Breland and HARDY from Nashville’s Whiskey Row here:

Bentley continues to be a dominant voice for the genre with over 6.4 billion streams and 20 No. One singles at Country radio. Reaching a new creative high while “making music designed to challenge” (New York Times), Bentley co-wrote 10 of 13 tracks on THE MOUNTAIN, which earned him the highest debut sales of his career and became his seventh chart-topping release. Most recently, Bentley’s surprise LIVE FROM TELLURIDE collection has been touted as “a gift that Country music fans didn’t know they needed,” (The Tennesseean). Having amassed countless nominations from the ACM‘s, CMA’s, Billboard Music Awards and more while also earning 14 GRAMMY nominations, Bentley also celebrated his 15 year anniversary as a member of the Grand Ole Opry. He has also created professional endeavors outside of the music with his Flag & Anthem lifestyle collection Desert Son, along with his “Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row” franchise hosting five locations.

Dierks Bentley (BOM backstory) OC: …is all about. :30
“I had so much fun writing this song ‘Beers On Me’ with my friends HARDY, Ashley Gorley, Ross Copperman and Luke Dick. It took five of us to write this song, and then I got in the studio with HARDY and then Breland came in and wrote a whole nother verse to it. So, there’s actually six guys writing this song, but we had so much fun doing it. One of my favorite songs I’ve written in a long time. I love the idea of just buying everybody a beer. We all have problems that we’re going through, but on a Saturday night or Thursday night or Friday night, whatever night I’m on the road, we’ve got no problems and that’s what this song is all about.”

LAUREN ALAINA DESCRIBES HER FRIEND JON PARDI IN THE PAIR’S DUET, “GETTING OVER HIM.”

When Lauren Alaina was in the writing room with her co-writers Emily Weisband and Paul DiGiovanni penning her latest single, “Getting Over Him,” she immediately thought of her pal Jon Pardi.

“When I was in the writing room writing it, I said it would be really cool to do it as a duet and show like the male perspective as well” she says. “So, we kind of made up this other character, and then we got a songwriter in town to sing the male part. And then I was listening to it, I was like, ‘It sounds like we described Jon Pardi.’ (laughs) It was very accidental.”

Lauren will hit the road with Florida Georgia Line on their I Love My Country Tour 2021 September 24th in Atlanta, Georgia.
