DREW PARKER TO PERFORM AT MILLION DOLLAR MUSIC FESTMarch 21, 2023
DREW PARKER'S DEBUT AT THIS YEAR'S MILLION DOLLAR MUSIC FESTIVAL!
Drew Parker knows exactly what he’s about – and country fans already love it. Some just don’t know it yet. Now, after joining Warner Music Nashville to supercharge his artistic ambition, they’ll soon learn. A native of Covington, Georgia, schooled on ‘90s country giants like Ronnie Dunn, Travis Tritt, Randy Travis and Alan Jackson, Parker’s led a recent resurgence in organic country hits – they’ve just been for other artists.
Tracks like Luke Combs’ BMI Song of the Year “Forever After All,” “Doin’ This,” which recently landed Parker his first GRAMMY nomination for Best Country Song, and Jake Owen’s “Homemade” have established his signature style, using whip-smart lyricism and actual country instruments to pen quality-driven Number Ones.
It’s that same wordplay that drives Parker’s solo work, too. With a standalone single released in 2016 and a four-song collection following in 2018, Parker reached a creative high-water mark in 2020: The While You’re Gone EP – seven twangy, energy-filled lyrical masterstrokes that were too “him” for anyone else to sing. The title track claimed No.1 on SiriusXM’s The Highway and named Parker the MusicRow “DisCovery Award” of the week. It’s the first true look at an artist who’s already developed a sound and style all his own. He continues to prove that with recent releases “Raised Up Right” and “Little Miss Saturday Night,” with more unreleased music waiting in the wings. He will hit the road on his headlining At The End of the Dirt Road Tour in January, playing at cities across the country. With his Grand Ole Opry debut, GRAMMY and CMA Awards nomination and a BMI Awards win under his belt, his original dreams are coming true. In true Drew Parker double meaning, the tank is gassed up, and he’s finally ready to roll…both literally and metaphorically.
