Parmalee is a country-rock band that has been in the music industry for 15 years and has toured with Jake Owen and Brad Paisley. Having roots in bluegrass, traditional country, southern rock and blues, helps create Parmalee’s country-rock sound. The band’s newest hit, “Roots” was released in spring of 2016.
Band brothers Matt and Scott Thomas, cousin Barry Knox and longtime friend Josh McSwain, began performing together in 2001 while they attended East Carolina University. The band started playing Tuesday and Thursday evenings in the Parmele, NC barn they named Studio B. For nine years, the band developed a devout regional following and finally ended up in Nashville in 2010.
The band landed a deal with Stoney Creek Record in February of 2011, beginning the domino effect of success. The band’s debut single, “Musta Had a Good Time” became a Top 40 hit on mainstream country radio and was voted by country fans #1 for four consecutive weeks on SiriusXM’s The Highway“Hot 30 LIVE” countdown. Parmalee also made history when its multi-week #1 smash hit “Carolina” became the longest climbing single by a group in the history of Billboard Country Airplay Chart. “Carolina” is certified as a PLATINUM record by the RIAA. In 2014, Parmalee earned a semi-finalist spot for Academy of Country Music’s New Artist of the Year award and a 2014 Teen Choice Award nomination. Parmalee’s latest hit, “Close Your Eyes,” became its second consecutive Top Three hit at country radio.
