“Writing and creating country music is the best job in the world. When you get to do it with folks that are like family it makes it that much better. It’s probably very clichè to say this but, for me, writing at River House is like writing at home. From Zebb giving me my first couch to sleep on in town 5 years ago, to Lynn hearing me play a writers round 3 years ago and believing in me, the River House team has always supported my dreams. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for my River House family,” said Parker.

“Drew is an incredible songwriter and even better person. I feel so lucky to have met him early on and find such success so quickly. We are just getting started, cheers to many more years together!” said Lynn Oliver-Cline, Founder of River House Artists.

When touring starts back up again, Parker is set to open for Luke Combs on his “What You See Is What You Get” tour in 2021. He has been busy writing throughout quarantine and is gearing up to release highly anticipated fan-favorite “While You’re Gone” on August 14. For more information, check out Parker’s website.

About Drew Parker
It takes some folks 10 years to make a name for themselves in Music City, but in the relatively short amount of time that Drew Parker has lived in Nashville, Tenn., he has been able to accomplish things he never dreamed were possible. Coming from a small, unincorporated town of Stewart, Georgia (located in Covington), 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 No. 1 smash “Homemade” and Luke Combs’ “1,2 Many” featuring Brooks and Dunn. 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.

Hi, I’m Annette, I have been a huge country music fan since the early 90s those were the days we were lucky enough to have CMT in the UK. I enjoy nothing more than listening to country music whilst having a cold beer (or a moonshine) with friends. I try to as many gigs as I can here in the UK and in the USA; I think of Nashville as my second home and I am lucky to have made some amazing friends in Tennessee. Think Country is something I am very proud of, I just want to share my love and passion of all things country music related with you all.
