Nashville-based country/pop artist Parker McKay has released her new single “Lately,” out everywhere today. The single, which premiered yesterday on The New Nine, is the follow up to her latest pair of singles “Honest” and “This Far,” which have received praise from CMT, Billboard, Spotify and Radio Disney Country.
“I wrote “Lately” with Adam James and Jon Sherwood We were playing around with some ideas and I had this lyric pop into my head and thought the wordplay of ‘I’ve been staying up too late, wondering what you’ve been up to lately’ would be fun. Being from the North, I’m very practical and upfront and I wanted to write a song about how I always make things worse in my mind and would rather have bad news upfront than imagine the worst possible scenario.” – Parker McKay
Parker has opened for artists like Rascal Flatts, The Band Perry, Sheryl Crow and Martina McBride. As both an artist and songwriter, her name has already made a notable impact on the industry’s community. Her debut music video premiered exclusively with Rolling Stone and she was recently added to CMT’s Artist Discovery Program. She brings a unique perspective to the table and shows that it’s a powerful thing to be a vulnerable, confident and fearless woman in country music.
