Look at the two cable going to each drum to see if just one is stuck on or both. IS it drum or disc? It is the emergency brake cable. It happened to me once before and the tow truck driver said the release is the same as in a Cadillac, but that doesn't help me and I can't afford another tow truck driver. In a caddilac you put it in drive to release the parking brake. But when the cable is broken you can't engage the parking brake.

I don't know about Silverado trucks but all of the emergency (parking) brakes I'm familiar with use the brake cable to "pull" and hold the brake against the drum (or disk), so if the cable breaks you simply cannot apply the emergency brake. That is, it is automatically released if the the cable breaks.
