It is always special when artists give their fans a glimpse into their lives. The journey to growing as a musician takes time and a lot of hard work, which most people don’t see. This is why Parker McCollum is releasing behind-the-scenes vlogs on his YouTube channel. He wants to show his listeners what the journey looks like from his perspective.
McCollum’s video series is called “Makin’ It Happen.” Releasing two episodes so far, the star is taking fans to the recording studio, his grandparents’ house, and even to the venue he used to play as a teenager. Behind-the-scenes footage is intermixed with video interviews featuring the artist’s commentary. It is a great way for fans to feel involved with the star’s journey.
