Parker McCollum – “Handle on You”

In country music, you can’t have heartbreak without a bit of drinking. In the throes of sadness, Parker McCollum “biggest bottle they got ’cause you’re gone,” he weeps with new song “Handle on You.” Then, he turns his attention to music, as a companion salve to his troubles, “Drop a needle on a vinyl and cry to old an Haggard song / Sittin’ at the table, baby breakin’ the seal / Gonna see how much of this pain I can kill.” True to his musical aesthetic, McCollum washes away in bright neons and the smooth warmth of whiskey, following in line with many of his predecessors.
