DREW PARKER RELEASES MUCH ANTICIPATED EP WHILE YOU’RE GONE
Drew Parker>, the newest SiriusXM “Highway Find,” released his much anticipated EP While You’re Gone today. In an era of country music where the sound leans more towards pop than country, While You’re Gone brings it back to center with a traditional country sound. Reminiscent of ‘90s Country, Parker draws on his influences to create a body of work that has both feel good songs as well as the classic heartbreak song.
“I’m so excited to be releasing new music! I have a good beer drinking, country honky tonk, boot stomper, a song that shows the vulnerability of my music and how I like to tell stories and then a very personal song that I wrote five years ago (before I ever thought about being a dad) that has now taken on a whole new meaning as I later realized it's a song that I wrote as a letter to my now 6-month-old daughter! I cannot wait for y'all to hear this new stuff,” says Parker.
With soulful and unique writing, he creates an emotional feeling with his sound and lyrics. Parker and his buddies, including Ray Fulcher, Jameson Rodgers and Jonathan Singleton, co-wrote each song highlighting the outstanding style he’s become known for.
The release of this EP is just one more accolade to add to Parker’s already outstanding year. Starting the year with the birth of his first baby girl the same week that he notched his first No. 1 as a songwriter with Jake Owen’s “Homemade,” to re-signing his publishing deal with River House Artists and being named as an opener for Luke Combs’ “What You See Is What You Get Tour” in 2021, it’s been a hell of a year. Not to mention releasing “While You’re Gone,” a hit-in-the-making, proven by it’s support on SiriusXM The Highway, Spotify (New Boots, Breakout Country, Wild Country), Apple Music (Happy Hour, Country Risers), Amazon Music (Breakthrough Country) and Pandora (New Country and New Country Now). Drew Parker is certainly becoming the next big thing!
Debuting on the iTunes Country chart at No. 4, joining some top albums including Sturgill Simpson's Cuttin' Grass, Brothers Osborne's Skeletons, Parker McCollum's Hollywood Gold and Morgan Wallen's If I Know Me, While You're Gone currently sits at No. 2 among some of the best new releases in country music.

About Drew Parker
It takes some folks 10 years to make a name for themselves in Music City, but in the three short years that Drew Parker has lived in Nashville, TN, he has been able to accomplish things he never dreamed were possible. Coming from a small, unincorporated town of Stewart, Georgia (located in Covington, Georgia), Parker began singing at age 3 in front of small church crowds. Over the years, he began to build his confidence and, at age 14, he decided to pick up a guitar and teach himself how to play songs from his inspirations, such as Keith Whitley, Merle Haggard, Waylon Jennings, Travis Tritt, and Alan Jackson. At age 18, he expanded his musical abilities and learned to play piano, both of which he still uses today to craft lyrics and rhymes into songs. Parker made the move to Nashville, Tennessee in 2015 and signed a publishing deal with RiverHouse/WarnerChappell in September of 2017. He is a co-writer on Luke Combs’ debut platinum record “This One’s For You”, Jake Owen’s single “Homemade” and Luke Combs’ “1,2 Many”. Aside from his cowboy hat and boots, Drew Parker is the definition of true country. He is genuine, honest, and carries an old soul that resonates with many. He is on the rise and sees no end in sight. For more information visit drewparkermusic.com.
