Parker Hamilton was born in Louisville, KY and grew up around a multi-generational farming family of rural Kentucky. When he graduated high school, he moved south to Bowling Green, KY to pursue a bachelor’s degree in marketing at Western Kentucky University. It was in a college dorm room with a family heirloom guitar when he taught himself how to play. He grew up listening to the likes of Lynyrd Skynyrd, AC/DC, Bob Seger and countless other classic rock icons. It was also a natural thing of someone of his background to have an interest in country music as well. Hamilton was taught at a young age that hard work and dedication are keys to success and that there are no shortcuts. His vocal influences include Hank Williams Jr., HARDY, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Luke Combs. Hamilton is a perfect representation of someone who is trying to put blue collar country back on the map.
