Parker acknowledges his career’s evolution, recalling doubts after his debut single ‘While You’re Gone’ topped charts but stalled on others. “There was a time I thought this song was bigger than me,” he admits, crediting his team for grounding him. “They shook some sense into me and said, ‘Are you crazy? This is a career song.'”

The upcoming release of his debut album, ‘Camouflage Cowboy’, scheduled for July 12, marks a significant moment for Parker. Reflecting on his hit single, Parker emphasises the album’s authenticity, noting minimal changes from its original demo. “The cut that is on the record is nearly identical to the demo,” he reveals, underscoring the song’s natural allure.

With the album release date close to his wife’s due date, Parker jokes about the potential chaos. “She’s due on July 20, but our first kid was early,” he shares with a laugh, acknowledging the hectic week ahead as he balances album promotions with impending fatherhood.
