Parker McCollum dropped his latest EP today, and he says its title is inspired by a horse his grandfather had many years ago.

“I was listening to my Grandma tell a story about this Australian racehorse that my Granddad had been kind of hell bent to buy at one point way back in the day,” the "Pretty Heart" singer recalls in a statement from his label. “She was just telling me this story about this horse and how he finally ended up buying it, and it ended up getting stolen as soon as they had it after a little while, and how my Granddad would go out looking for this horse for months and months at a time and they ended up finding it.

"It’s a story I had heard all of my life, but I’d never really paid attention to it I don’t think as much until she was telling it this one time and I kept hearing 'Hollywood Gold,' and I said, ‘Man! What a great name kind of for the album or the EP.’ Man, I just think it fit.”
