PARKER MCCOLLUM’S STREET PARTY | 5.4.2019
Cheatham Street Warehouse, San Marcos, TX
Parker McCollum threw a huge outdoor street party on Saturday, May 4th at the house that Kent Finlay built… Cheatham Street Warehouse. The San Marcos landmark, which was purchased from the Finlay family in late 2016 by Texas Country Music icon Randy Rogers, has seen a handful of these "street parties” within the past year and we here at Texas Music Photographers hope it’s a trend that continues! The iconic Texas venue has been a launching pad responsible for skyrocketing the likes of George Strait, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Randy Rogers, Todd Snider and hundreds more singers and songwriters. On this night, Parker McCollum, along with Mike Ryan, Shotgun Rider, and Shaker Hymns filled the San Marcos air with the sounds of quintessential Texas Country.
At just 26 years old, Parker McCollum is already earning comparisons to critically acclaimed artists like Ryan Bingham and John Mayer. However, the young singer-songwriter has also worked tirelessly to establish his own name, a fact that is evident on his striking full-length debut album, The Limestone Kid, which was released on Feb. 24, 2015. His current album, Probably Wrong, features well known songs such as “I Can’t Breathe” and “Misunderstood”. His song “Hell of a Year” was featured on the current season of The Ranch on Netflix.
