Parker McCollum Claps Back at Internet Troll: “I Take It as a Compliment Every Time!”

Parker McCollum recently took a stand against a Twitter user who posted a hate-filled comment about him and rising country star Billy Zimmerman.

@baileyzimmerman and @ParkerMcCollum are horrible country singers. Someone should have said that,” the user wrote.

Rather than take the harsh words to heart, the country star decided to look at this negative situation in a more positive light.

He replied, “If you never have anyone talking about you on social media, you often don’t do much in life. I take it as a compliment every time!”

Lots of fans quickly came to McCollum’s rescue in the comments section, proving that the internet trolls are no match for all the loyal support he has around him.

One fan wrote, “I’ve seen you in person and you’re one of the few that has been living better! Keep up the great work, your fans have your back! 🙌” while another said, “Keep being you”

The ‘Beautiful Heart’ singer’s career continued to blossom with every move he took. Like his reaction to the negative comment, McCollum revealed that he’s making an effort to change his mindset when it comes to his career. He strives to slow down a bit in order to jot down the best moments every new opportunity that comes his way.

He continued, “It’s just real life, so I’ve learned to try and enjoy the night on purpose. And when we play big shows like Houston Rodeos and things like that, ‘Hey, slow it down and appreciate how many healthy and alive family members are here.'” And for the big stuff, things like that. “

One person in particular who helped McCollum pursue this new outlook on life was his wife, Halle Ray Light.

“[With] Halle Rae, my wife, there is nothing wrong with her anymore. I think the thing that’s been missing at that early time is just human nature, and you want that connection and whatever it is. And with Halle Rae I have that, and so there’s no shame in her anymore. It’s constantly loud,” she gushed. “I know it sounds mushy and deep, but I’ve given a lot of thought to this. It’s funny you ask and for several years now, and since I’ve been with her and we’ve been on as good as we’ve been, there’s no getting off.”
