In 2019 Parker McCollum established himself as the future now of Texas and Red Dirt scene. In 2020, in the midst of a global pandemic, he showed he was made for even more than The Lone Star State could contain.

The still-Austin-based singer/songwriter released his full-length debut album, The Limestone Kid, in '15. In 2017 McCollum released the Probably Wrong Sessions, before combining the ambitious two-part project together into a third, the Probably Wrong album. This year his first national release, "Pretty Heart," reached the Top 5 on the Country Billboard Chart and closes out the year as the 41st biggest song of 2020 on country radio.

McCollum's newest EP, Hollywood Gold, debuted at number 10 on the Billboard country chart this fall, and subsequently became the highest-selling debut EP this year according to ABC News Radio. In addition, "Pretty Heart" (which went No.1 in Texas earlier in the year), has now been certified gold by the RIAA, marking 500,000 units sold.

Parker's latest release to Texas radio is the fan-favorite "Young Man's Blues." First thing you'll notice is it is more up-tempo than the version he's been singing at live shows, but we're digging it, it's going over great on the radio.

Today let's take a look back at his fiery "Hell of a Year" music video.
