Texas native Parker McCollum took on the Big Apple for his just-released “Pretty Heart” music video.

The cinematic clip features a present-day Parker reminiscing about his ex-lover on the top of a New York City highrise. Dressed in black from head to toe, Parker appears to be filled with regret as memories of happier times with his lady flash across the screen.

In the flashbacks, the couple can be seen smiling and laughing as they take in the sights of the city and getting cozy at home together. Their relationship unfolds toward the end of the clip as his blond-haired lover angrily packs up her things and leaves pulling her suitcase along the sidewalk behind her.

“What does that say about me/ I could do you like I did/ That I could break an angel’s wings/ What does that say about me/ That I stood there like a fencepost/ As you drove off in your car/ What does that say about me/ Now that I broke/ Your pretty heart,” McCollum croons throughout the chorus.

“Pretty Heart,” which McCollum co-wrote with Randy Montana, is the lead single from his much-anticipated MCA Nashville debut.

After recently selling out Nashville’s Exit/In, McCollum has a lengthy list of tour dates planned throughout the spring. Fans can visit his official website for details.
