Country singer-songwriter Parker McCollum charms on his highly eclectic “Gold Chain Cowboy” album. Digital Journal has the recap.
A country musician and multi-instrumentalist, McCollum released this album via MCA Nashville. Each of the 10 songs that he wrote for this musical effort is distinct, where they all have their own identities.
“Gold Chain Cowboy” was produced by Jon Randall, and it picks up where his “Hollywood Gold” EP left off.
The album opens with the upbeat “Wait Outside,” and it is followed by “Dallas,” his soaring collaboration with Danielle Bradbery, and his refreshing radio single “To Be Loved By You.”
Equally fun is the neotraditional-sounding “Drinkin’,” “Heart Like Me,” and the uptempo and catchy “Falling Apart,” which is one of this journalist’s all-time favorite Parker McCollum songs.
After the soothing acoustic tune “Rest of My Life,” it closes with his chart-topping single “Pretty Heart” and with the nonchalant and sassy “Never Loved You At All.”
A native of Texas, McCollum was the sole writer of “Rest of My Life” and he shares songwriting credits with Jon Randall, Wade Bowen, Randy Rogers, Randy Montana, Rhett Akins, Miranda Lambert, and Songwriters Hall of Famer Tony Lane.
