Parker Pressley, a native of Enka/Candler, NC just outside of Asheville, NC currently resides in Knoxville, TN. Pressley got his start, singing in the church he attended with his grandparents. They encouraged him to sing in church as often as possible in his early years. As Parker became older, he did not lose his love for music. He decided to get serious and follow his dreams and in 1993 got to work with Jimmy Snow, the son of the great musician Hank Snow. He won his first award for singing during this time also. As the years progressed, Parker became acquainted with some other great artists. In 2008, he had the privilege to work with the Bellamy Brothers, and in 2010 Clinton Gregory. All of his hard work has led to a career recording records for the Sims Record Label and in 2014, winning the New Horizon Entertainer of the Year Award for the North American Country Music Association International (NACMAI). Pressley entertains the crowd with covers as well as originals written by himself and fellow songwriters.
