When relationships end, it’s not always just the person that you lose – sometimes they aren’t even who or what you miss most. Warner Music Nashville singer/songwriter Drew Parker is portraying that it can be, well, ruff. In his brand-new music video for “While You’re Gone,” directed by Blake Judd, Parker’s character offers a new perspective of the difficulties of going through a breakup (WATCH HERE).
“I feel as though everyone that listens to this song hears the sadness and the loneliness in the message,” said Parker, “but I wanted to visually represent the funny aspect of this song and tip my cap to the music videos that I grew up on. I think we did exactly that thanks to the dog, Idgie, for being a part of the video.”
“While You’re Gone” impacted radio this week as the most-added debut single, tying for second overall (LISTEN HERE). The major-label debut, co-written by Parker and Jameson Rodgers, has already made a mark on SiriusXM as the No.1 track on The Highway. Previously named a “Highway Find,” the “BR PBR” song has garnered more than 40 million global streams and helped land Parker on SiriusXM’s “Future Five For 2021” list. The Georgia native was also recently named MusicRow’s “DisCovery Award” winner, with the outlet going on to say, “I dig this guy. He has a powerful singing voice, and the production is epic…heartache on the hoof.”
Parker recently concluded a string of tour dates alongside labelmate Cody Johnson and will soon begin appearances on various fairs and festivals across the country, starting out at The Windjammer in South Carolina (6/3). In August, he will rejoin frequent songwriting collaborator Luke Combs as an opener on his What You See Is What You Get tour alongside labelmate Ashley McBryde.
