Rising country singer-songwriter, Parker McCollum released a new single titled “To Be Loved By You” on New Year’s Day, available on all streaming platforms. Take a look below as we dive deeper into the track.
The Texas-native just received his first number one last week with his self-loathing smash-hit “Pretty Heart” and is immediately releasing new music. “To Be Loved By You” tackles a similar theme—his personal struggle with love and relationships. Listen below:
“So why are you always angry? / Why are you always quiet? / Why do you sleep alone? / When I know you don’t like it / Maybe you might be different / Will it kill you to tell me the truth? / What in the hell does a man have to do to be loved by you?”
Compared to his attitude in “Pretty Heart” and the entire Hollywood Gold EP, it sounds as though McCollum is slowly becoming less hard on himself. In this new song, he admits he has weaknesses but still feels he is the right man for this girl–he just cannot figure out what she wants in a lover.
McCollum is adding to his mainstream country catalog with this release, as he already has an extensive collection as an independent artist.
