Give us a little taste, then… how about that, Parker?

The Gold Chain Cowboy, Parker McCollum, is feeling confident about what he has been laying down in the studio, but the more he tweets about how stellar this project is shaping up to be, the more I want him to give us a taste of it.

Last month, McCollum took to social media to share that he was starting work on his fifth studio album and felt confident about the material he was bringing into those early studio sessions—even going as far as to say it’s going to be as good as his debut album, Limestone Kid. 

He also noted in that Tweet that he feels like he is coming out of a songwriting rut and has his mojo back.

Today, McCollum shared another update regarding the album doubling down on his previous statement about how he was feeling with the material that will be on this album.

“Sitting in the studio right now. Half way done with this new album. I’d put these songs up against anything I’ve ever written. Very proud of them. Hope you guys will love them.”

Not only do I love this side of Parker McCollum sharing how great he feels about the songs he is writing, but I also love the update about the album being halfway done. Hopefully, that means a new album by the end of the year is coming our way.

With how much he has been on the road, I am frankly impressed that in a month he is sharing, he is halfway done with the album. I bet he is trying to get all of the heavy lifting on this project done before his bride delivers their baby boy, and he changes his focus to dad mode.

Hopefully, he will give us a little taste of what is in store in the near future. But until then, we can go back to his Limestone Kid era and turn up his recently recorded acoustic cut of “High Above Water.”

Turn this one all the way up.
