Houston Life host Derrick Shore interviewed Parker via Zoom, in 2021. At that time, it was just announced that Parker would play his first Rodeo. Parker told Shore, “There is nothing bigger than that for me – the Houston Rodeo… From the time I was 10 years old, my only goal in life was to be big enough in country music to where I can go headline the Houston Rodeo…”
