Parker McCollum was surprised with two RIAA plaques during his sold-out show at Nashville's Ascend Amphitheater on Saturday (May 21st). The plaques celebrate Parker’s Number One hits “Pretty Heart,” which has been certified 2x multi-Platinum, and “To Be Loved By You,” which has been certified Gold. Both songs are included on Parker's major label debut, Gold Chain Cowboy, which was released last summer.
He said, “What can I even say? I have a double Platinum hit and a Gold hit to start my career at the best record label in music. Universal Music Group Nashville/ MCA Nashville has been incredibly patient with me and allowed me to craft these songs the same way I always have. I am forever grateful for this opportunity to swing it in the big leagues of country music. We are just getting started.”
Parker will make his debut appearance at this year’s CMA Fest in Nashville. He will be hitting the main stage at Nissan Stadium on Sunday, June 12th.
