Breakout Country Star Parker McCollum Closes Out 2022 With His Latest Release 'Stoned'

By Stevie Connor.

Breakout Country star Parker McCollum is closing out 2022 with his latest release, “Stoned,” out now. The solemnly reflective track, written by McCollum, Brett James, and Mark Holman, explores the universal emotions of loneliness, uncertainty, and misunderstanding, and how we often find ways to self-medicate our feelings.

“I was going to save this song to be released with the album but, after the fans demanded it be released sooner, I decided to go ahead and give it to them,” says McCollum. “This song says so much while saying so little, which is exactly how I like it to be. I hope they love it!”

In addition to the release of “Stoned,” tickets for all of Parker’s announced 2023 tour dates are available now. Joining the highly touted road-warrior next year is an impressive group of rising county artists including Corey Kent, Catie Offerman, Larry Fleet, Jackson Dean, Flatland Cavalry, and Texas staple, the Randy Rogers Band. Co-produced by Live Nation and Emporium Presents, the upcoming tour will feature fan-favorite tunes and Parker’s biggest hits – including No. 1 songs “To Be Loved By You” and “Pretty Heart,” plus current chart climbing single “Handle On You” – as he gears up for another explosive year on-stage performing for the fans that make it all possible.
