Parker McCollum Earns First #1 With 'Pretty Heart'
Sometimes I think #1's on country radio are overrated for a number of reasons. A lot of the time it's all about how much money is dropped from labels to get radio to spin it more, it is also beyond me why they will literally wait 60 weeks before the artist releases another single just to keep annoyingly pushing and pushing it until it goes #1.
With that said, it's still nice to see something different and something actually good top the Country music charts. After recently signing with Universal Music Group of Nashville, Texas artist Parker McCollum, scored his first ever #1 and currently has 13 million youtube views on the video.
With artists like himself, Cody Johnson, Chris Stapleton, Luke Combs and Riley Green on mainstream radio, I think we have something to be excited for with the future of the genre.
Now, let's get Randall King on it.
We did it y’all! Just a kid from Conroe, TX who dreamed about playing country music now has the #1 song in the country this week! No beer songs or dirt roads or trucks or nothin. Just honest songwriting. We did it our way! Best fans in the world made it happen! THANK YOU!— Parker McCollum (@ParkerMcCollum) December 21, 2020
