Parker McCollum's fiery, anthemic single, ‘Burn It Down’, has officially been certified Platinum by RIAA, in recognition of the track shifting the equivalent of one million units.

Parker was awarded the prestigious plaque ahead of his performance at Kyle Field in College Station, Texas, opening for George Strait's momentous show, which set a new record for the largest attendance at a US concert with a colossal crowd of 110,905.

The electric song features on Parker's lauded 2023 album, Never Enough, with ‘Burn It Down’ being sent to Country Radio as the second single from the project, following ‘Handle On You’. Both promptly hit the top spot, with ‘Burn it Down’ peaking in April.

‘Burn It Down’ captures the laid-back, brooding ambience Parker McCollum has become synonymous with, and fans are hoping the Texas hitmaker will provide more of this on his forthcoming record, which is expected to be unveiled later in the year.

The ‘Pretty Heart’ singer-songwriter told Holler earlier in 2024 that he's looking to return to the feel of his older material, such as The Limestone Kid and Probably Wrong, for his next record, with Parker confirming in May that the album is 50% completed.

Parker McCollum is yet to announce the next song he'll be sending to Country Radio, which makes us think he's readying a brand new track, rather than looking to choosing another offering from Never Enough as his follow-up single to ‘Burn It Down’.

With Parker performing a stellar rendition of his unreleased fan-favourite, ‘Big Ol’ Fancy House’, during CMA Fest 2024, after teasing it via Holler a few months prior, we're keeping our fingers crossed he decides to drop this as his eagerly awaited next single. Following this latest triumph for ‘Burn It Down’, its successor will no doubt have sizeable shoes to fill - but given the powerful emotion and sinuous hook behind ‘Big Ol’ Fancy House’, we think it would be a fantastic choice.
