Parker McCollum releases 'Tails I Lose' from upcoming album, 'Never Enough'

√ McCollum adds additional dates to 2023 tour schedule

Press Release

With his new album, “Never Enough,” set to release May 12, MCA Nashville multi-Platinum singer/songwriter Parker McCollum is sharing another look at the forthcoming project with the track “Tails I Lose” out today. Written by McCollum with Wade Bowen, Brad Warren and Brett Warren, the song hearkens back to country’s classic hits with steel guitar, emotive storytelling, and a timeless turn of phrase delivered with McCollum’s signature vocal conviction.

"We hadn’t heard the phrase ‘heads you win, tails I lose’ in a country song before, so we started writing that idea over a melody and dropping all kinds of imagery about breakups,” McCollum shared. “When we got in the studio, Rob McNelley played that guitar sound and I was like, ‘That’s it.’ The guitar lick is so good, it sets the song up and does it justice. This song is just hardcore country. I love it and hope the fans do, too.”

“Never Enough,” the highly anticipated follow-up to McCollum’s breakout major label debut, “Gold Chain Cowboy,” is available to preorder now. Beginning today, McCollum joins an elite group of all-genre stars chosen for Spotify’s new mobile feature, “Countdown Pages” – a destination for fans to pre-save, watch exclusive video clips, and see a timer count down to release day. The album’s lead single, “Handle On You,” shoot-it-straight confession “Stoned,” and previous releases “I Ain’t Going Nowhere” and “Speed,” are featured on “Never Enough” (produced by Jon Randall), as McCollum teams up with some of the most esteemed songwriters from Texas to Music Row. 

“Handle On You” is closing in on the top of the country radio airplay charts, after tallying 140 million global streams. McCollum recently made his debut on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” to perform the Gold-certified track. Watch the clip here.
