Burn It Down Tour 2024 Launches January 18
The platinum-selling Country star only has a few days left before kicking off his highly anticipated Burn It Down Tour. Produced by Emporium Presents, the tour will kick off on January 18 at Spokane Arena in Spokane, WA, and continue with stops in Dayton, New Orleans, Indianapolis, and more before wrapping up in Corpus Christi, TX at American Bank Center Arena on August 31.
McCollum will be joined by a variety of special guests on select dates, including Corey Kent, Larry Fleet, George Birge, and Catie Offerman.
“2024 is going to be the biggest and best show we have ever put together. I can’t wait for all the fans to come see what we are working up. The Burn It Down Tour is going to be absolutely epic,” he teased in a recent statement.
This 41-date run follows a major year for the Texas native, as he spent the majority of 2023 headlining his own arena and amphitheater tour, and serving as support on select dates of Morgan Wallen’s stadium shows.
Parker McCollum’s Current Single Is Climbing The Charts
The tour is named after McCollum’s current radio single, “Burn It Down,” which is featured on his latest album, Never Enough, and is currently in the Top 15 at Country radio.
McCollum’s name appears on the songwriting credits of the tune alongside Hillary Lindsey, Liz Rose, and Lori McKenna. Together, they added another breakup anthem to McCollum’s discography, except this one takes on a more hard-hitting narrative as he sings of wanting to completely erase the memories of a past relationship.
“Burn it down ’til it’s ashes and smoke / Burn it down to the smolderin’ coals / Burn it down ’til I don’t want you no more / Baby, burn it down,” he delivers on the chorus.
The 15-track project was released on May 12, 2023, and serves as a highly anticipated follow-up to McCollum’s breakout major label debut, Gold Chain Cowboy.
Throughout each track, fans get a raw look into the “Gold Chain Cowboy’s” life and his internal battles with self-acceptance. He covers both love and heartbreak ballads, while also displaying a slew of upbeat tunes.
“’Never Enough’ is really kind of just the common theme. I just couldn’t shake it. All last year I just kept coming back to it, you know, every mountain I’ve climbed, I just kind of immediately wanted to climb the next mountain. And as much as I could obtain or buy or do, or the amount of work I could put in is like never enough. It always seems never enough,” McCollum explained honestly.
Prior to releasing the full collection, McCollum gave fans a taste with songs like “Speed,” “Tails I Lose,” “I Ain’t Going Nowhere,” “Stoned,” and his RIAA Gold-certified “Handle On You.” In addition to this milestone feat, “Handle On You” also reached No.1 on the Mediabase/Country Aircheck chart, following his previous chart-topping singles, “Pretty Heart” and “To Be Loved By You.”
