Parker McCollum releases ‘Handle On You’ video

McCollum had a breakout 2022

Parker McCollum has shared the video for his latest single, “Handle On You,” his first release of 2023. Directed by Jim Wright, the beautifully shot video gives insight into the push and pull of balancing a career that you love but takes you away from home and the people closest to you – striking a middle ground with humble perspective.

“Shot half of the video at a sold out show in my hometown – 20,000 people at Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion,” McCollum shares. “Shot the other half at our Family Ranch in East Texas. Seemed like the perfect opportunity to get to come home and showcase, on-camera, the place I love the most while doing what I love to do the most. I love this song and wrote it with my buddy Monty Criswell and I feel like we really kind of went in a different direction with it from my other songs. Putting this thing on film and giving the viewers a look into my life at home and on the road was an important visual for me to have go along with the track. So, in short, I love every bit of it and hope the fans dig it. Can’t wait for it to be out!”

The track is currently in the top 15 at country radio and has surpassed 80 million global streams to date.

In May, McCollum will embark on his 2023 headlining tour that was extended by 14 dates last month due to demand. Among the stops is a sold out show at the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO. The country star will also be joining Morgan Wallen as support for six dates on his upcoming One Night At A Time World Tour.
