Jimmy Parker, a Virginia native, is a true-blooded country music singer. He has stayed true to his roots since he started pursuing country music for a career. His move to Nashville came in February, 1990. After spending a few years in Nashville knocking on doors and then getting out of the music business for seven years due to his late wife’s illness, he returned to his passion in 2004. He wrote a few songs and what started as a fun hobby and a tribute to his late wife, he recorded an album and entitled it "Warm Love." The title of that album came from the song he wrote as a tribute to his late wife based on an experience he had with her spirit a few weeks after her death in 2003.
Recording that album relit a fire in Jimmy’s heart that had been burning for a very long time. He knew right then he wanted back in the business. He took a deep look at himself and decided if it was going to happen he had to make it happen himself. He avoided the famed Music Row where all the publishers, record labels, producers, etc. conduct their business. He discovered the internet, did his own networking, promoted his music to internet radio stations, plotted his own path and created a road that had no end nor doors to slam shut in his face. He created his own record label, his own publishing company, got with a producer (Danny Muhammad) he had known for 20 years and worked out a deal to start recording and selling his songs. He wrote, he searched for songs from other writers, and recorded some of the great cover songs of the past that he liked. With his new producer, he pushed out five more cd albums, “More Than You Know,” “Real Deal,” and “American Country Singer,” "Home," and, "The Journey."
Today, Jimmy still lives in Nashville. He not only now sings but acts as well having appeared in the hit TV shows, "Nashville" and "Still The King." He's also a star on the hit NCS TV show called, "Hicksville Junction." He's appeared in a movie with John Colbert called "All Saints" and a music video by Reba McIntyre called "Back to God."
He loves his travels around the country performing for House Concerts, Theatres, Casinos, listening rooms, Cafes, etc. . Many people are jumping on this band wagon and getting Jimmy to come play a Concert for them, their families, and their friends. He has played for crowds as big as 5,000 people. He has toured many states in the U.S. and has even toured and performed in Australia capping it off with some performances in Tamworth, New South Wales, Australia known as the home of the largest country music festival in the world.
When you visit any of the links above for Jimmy, sit back and take a good listen to Jimmy’s songs. You will see why so many people have started to follow him. Some of his fans have been there since day one and have bought all his music. He is unique, original, and traditional with an edge. He is one of the nicest guys you will ever want to meet. But be warned, because if you listen close enough, his songs have a way of just snuggling up beside you and make you think he is singing just to you. Give him a listen. We are sure you will not be disappointed.
