Park is anything but new to the Texas music scene. His debut album was released in 2005 and since then, Park has not slowed down. Using unconventional methods, Park decided to release two EPs in 2010 and allowed fans to choose songs for the following album, Make Me Or Break Me, which was released in 2011. With the title track as the single, it earned Park a No. 3 spot on the Texas Music Chart and the song stayed in the Top 10 for over six weeks. As with any Top 10 song, a top-notch live show is a must. It’s no coincidence Park has developed an audience big enough that his name is now on the back wall at Billy Bob’s Texas, right alongside Pat Green, Blake Shelton, Alabama, Brad Paisley and Tim McGraw.
