Parker McCollum Tries To Drink His Pain Away On New Honky Tonk Heartbreaker, “Handle On You”

Talk about a honky-tonk heartthrob…

Parker McCollum has released a brand new single called “Handle On You” and if you love sad country songs like me then you will love these.

Of the new single, McCollum keeps it simple:

“I know I’ve written a few songs about heartbreak and alcohol. So here’s another one.”

Co-authoring Parker and Monty Criswell, we see Parker drinking to overcome a heartbreak and trying to get a handle on his emotions through the bottom of a bottle, even though he knows he shouldn’t be drinking so much, but: “I’m telling you to stop, but I don’t stop with drunk people.”

One of my favorite lines comes in the first verse, where it refers to crying alone with a drink while an old Merle Haggard song is playing on the record player in the background:

“I went and bought the biggest bottle they got because you’re gone
Dropped a pin on a record and cried to an old Haggard song
Sitting at the table baby breaking the seal
I’ll see how much of this pain I can kill…”

Of all the new stuff Parker has released in the last year or two, including his third studio album Gold Chain Cowboy In 2021 I think this might be my favorite song out of the bunch.

You just can’t beat a simple, well-written, sad country song like this:

And Parker recently teamed up with Ronnie Dunn for another great song called ” “Road to Abilene”: Parker McCollum Tries To Drink His Pain Away On New Honky Tonk Heartbreaker, “Handle On You”
