Lee Roy Parnell

Lee Roy Parnell, a multiple GRAMMY® Award nominee, singer/songwriter, soulful vocalist and No. 1 hit-maker, is widely recognized as one of the best slide guitar players on the planet. Parnell’s music runs the gamut of diversity. Combining the influences of Blue-Eyed Soul, Delta Blues, Road House Rock, Southern Boogie, Texas Swing, Country and Gospel, his sound defies conventional classification. Known for a long list of country hits including “On The Road,” “Love Without Mercy,” “Heart’s Desire,” “I’m Holding My Own,” “Tender Moment” and “What Kind Of Fool Do You Think I Am,” Parnell is also a Texas Heritage Songwriters Association Hall of Fame member (alongside fellow honorees such as Kris Kristofferson, JD Souther, Rodney Crowell, Guy Clark, and Willie Nelson). Parnell has toured/collaborated with many legends including The Allman Brothers Band, Delbert McClinton, Merle Haggard and Bonnie Raitt. Gibson has honored Parnell with the creation and production of the Gibson Custom Lee Roy Parnell Signature ’57 Les Paul Standard Goldtop Guitar. Parnell’s latest album, Midnight Believer, made the AllMusic Best of 2017: Favorite Blues Albums list. No Depression has called Parnell: “A fine writer blessed with a rich, soulful vocal delivery and a blistering array of guitar chops drawn almost equally from Texas blues, Memphis soul and Southern rock traditions…”
