Parker McCollum Combines ‘Old School Country’ and Nostalgia with New Single “Stoned” (Review)

The studio version of Parker McCollum’s new song “Stoned” has been released after he performed the song out on the road.

In addition to the storytelling, McCollum’s vocals bring a sense of nostalgia to his music, which evokes a nostalgic feeling of ‘old-school country.’ Among McCollum’s anthems, heartbreaking anthems about loss and heartbreak, there is a strong element of hope and inspiration.


The incorporation of using substances to numb a hurting heart has long been a staple of country music. This song is a testament to McCollum’s musicianship and a promise of what’s yet to come.

McCollum’s lyricism allows the wary emotion to truly resonate with a new generation of listeners. As an artist, his work is both a testament to and a promise of his future work.

Only a few months ago, the Texas native released “Handle On You,” which continues to gain popularity on country radio.

Throughout 2022, he toured as an opening act for Thomas Rhett, where he won the ACM New Male Artist of the Year award. On the newly announced Morgan Wallen ‘One Night At A Time World Tour,’ McCollum will open for him on select dates throughout the country.
