2020 has been downright brutal, no other way around it. From COVID-19, to deaths in the country music world, to the inability for anyone to get along with someone they disagree with, it’s been a massive flop.
Although, I have a pitch to save 2020, and get 2021 off on the right foot: A Parker McCollum and Koe Wetzel co-headlining tour announcement.
The Texas natives are good friends and have played together multiple times in the past, including their annual Naught Or Nice Christmas tour. They even teamed up on “Love,” a song on Wetzel’s Noise Complaint album from 2016.
It just makes too much sense. Parker McCollum just dropped his EP, Hollywood Gold, earlier this month, while last week, Koe Wetzel announced his new album, Sellout,which is due out on November 20th.
Of course, the tour will have to start in 2021, a little something to hopefully get the year off on the right foot and make up for this seemingly never ending run we’ve been on in 2020. With both artists as successful as they are in the Texas scene there’d obviously have to be multiple dates in the area, but is it selfish of me to ask them to spread this sucker out over the entire country? Maybe bring a some other Texas boys to open the show… I’m just spit-ballin’ here.
The irony is that Parker and Koe couldn’t be any more different in appearance and style. Parker embraces that clean cut, soft spoken, high school quarterback image, while Koe is the rough around the edges, in your face artist. Combine them, and it would be the perfect tour to kick off the new year.
