McCollum gets "Stoned"

– Parker McCollum is out with his latest release, "Stoned."
The reflective track, written by McCollum, Brett James and Mark Holman, explores loneliness, uncertainty and misunderstanding and how we often find ways to self-medicate our feelings.
"I was going to save this song to be released with the album but, after the fans demanded it be released sooner, I decided to go ahead and give it to them. This song says so much while saying so little, which is exactly how I like it to be. I hope they love it," McCollum said.
The Texan released his major label debut album, "Gold Chain Cowboy," in Juy 2021 on MCA. The album followed his "Hollywood Gold" EP in 2020.
