Growing up in eastern North Carolina, the four men of Parmalee learned to mix good music and good eating from a very young age. The stove was always hot, or the grill was always burning when family would gather. And the live music rarely stopped.
2015 Country Jam is officially rolling — after a strong Day 1, it's safe to say this country party is rockin'. With acts like Sasha McVeigh, Parmalee, the Band Perry and more on Thursday (June 18), there were many memorable, hilarious, talent-filled and musically astounding moments. But there were a handful that will be etched in the minds of fans for years to come.
Parmalee say their motto is "Keep on plugging!" On Thursday night in Rootstown, Ohio they had to keep plugging when a power outage kept them from plugging in. Fans with cell phones lit the stage and then helped the country quartet get through their new song "Already Callin' You Mine."
The men of Parmalee are stoked to be out on the road with country superstar Brad Paisley, something they couldn't keep quiet about when chatting with Sam Alex -- host of Taste of Country Nights -- recently.
Following up a No. 1 single is a challenge for any new artist, but Parmalee feel pretty confident about their chances with 'Close Your Eyes.' The track from the group's new 'Feels Like Carolina' album was a no-brainer. In this video premiering exclusively on Taste of Country, singer Matt Thomas says he fell for it the moment he heard it.
