Top 10 "Already Callin' You Mine" is the third consecutive hit off Parmalee's debut Stoney Creek Records album, FEELS LIKE CAROLINA ("Close Your Eyes" and "Carolina"). The single also marks the biggest first week add date AND fastest-rising single of the band's career to date.

Currently nominated for ACM "New Vocal Duo/Group of the Year" award, Parmalee recently performed "Already Callin' You Mine" on NBC's TODAY show and MLB Central's Studio 21.
Parmalee had back-to-back runs on Brad Paisley's "2015 Country Nation World Tour" and Jake Owen's "2014 Days of Gold Tour." The band will headline its own dates and perform at festivals in 2016.

Parmalee's "Close Your Eyes," spent five consecutive weeks on the CMT Hot 20 Countdown and four consecutive weeks on the GAC's Top 20 Country Countdown for four consecutive weeks.
Parmalee's smash "Carolina" was a multi-week #1 hit at country radio and is now certified PLATINUM in sales. "Carolina" is the longest-climbing single by a duo or group in the 24-year history of the Billboard Country Airplay Chart.

Parmalee was the first multi-member Country act to garner a #1 single since Florida Georgia Line on both the Billboard Country Airplay and Mediabase/Country Aircheck charts (Fall 2013).
"Carolina" pays homage to the band's home state of North Carolina. Both "Carolina" and "Close Your Eyes" were fan-voted #1 on SiriusXM The Highway's "Hot 30 LIVE" countdown show.
Parmalee's debut album, FEELS LIKE CAROLINA, has been lauded by People, The New York Times, USA Today, Newsday, Billboard and more.

Parmalee is a family band comprised of brothers Matt and Scott Thomas (lead vocals/ guitar & drums, respectively), cousin Barry Knox (bass) and life long best friend Josh McSwain (guitar).

In September 2010, the band was involved in an attempted robbery and shootout on its RV outside the club they had just played. The incident came on the eve of Parmalee traveling to Nashville for a showcase with Stoney Creek Records. Scott Thomas (drummer) was shot three times and was airlifted to a hospital in Charlotte, NC. He was given a 5% chance of life by doctors, but miraculously survived after spending 35 days in the hospital, ten of which he was in a coma.

Influenced by such musical heavyweights as the Allman Brothers, Travis Tritt and Bob Seger, Parmalee's band name is derived from the small town of Parmele, NC (population 262), which is home to a gas station, two blinking yellow lights and a small tin-roofed barn dubbed "Studio B" where the band rehearsed. The band added an extra "e" at the end to make "Parmalee" easier to pronounce.

Parmalee is an American country music band consisting of brothers Matt Thomas (lead vocals, guitar) and Scott Thomas (drums) along with their cousin Barry Knox (bass) and Josh McSwain (guitar) who is a best friend since childhood. Prior to the formation of Parmalee, Matt and Scott performed with their father in a group entitled the Jerry Thomas and the Thomas Brothers Band. When their father retired, they wanted to continue their careers in music so they started Parmalee. Their first EP was titled “Daylight” and released in 2002. The band drew attention from producer David Bendeth of RCA. Bendeth invited Parmalee to record three songs at Water Music Studios in Hoboken, New Jersey, which led to a publishing deal with Los Angeles-based Windswept Publishing. Following the publishing deal came an invitation from Bendeth to record the remainder of the 12 songs that comprised the band's full-length debut album, “Inside.” Following the album’s 2004 release, Parmalee spent nearly two years touring and promoting their album. In 2006, the band went to Los Angeles to begin recording with producer Stevo Bruno. The band split their time between touring the East coast and recording in California. Nikki Sixx, bassist of Mötley Crüe, collaborated with Parmalee on several tracks, both writing and producing. Parmalee recorded the majority of the tracks in Los Angeles, then travelled to Nashville to write, produce, and mix the remainder of the record with producer Kevin Beamish. Parmalee released their EP “Complicated” in 2008. In September 2010, the band was the victim of an attempted robbery. They had just finished playing at The Money, a local bar directly across from Winthrop University in Rock Hill, South Carolina, and were in their RV when two suspects, Dytavis Hinton and Demario Burris, entered the vehicle with a handgun demanding money. At this time, drummer Scott Thomas came out from the back of the bus with his own gun and told them to leave. The gunman, Burris, opened fire and Scott was shot in the leg, stomach, and shoulder. Returning fire, both suspects were hit, with Burris being killed and Hinton wounded. Thomas was in critical condition after the gunshot wound and was hospitalized in Charlotte for 35 days -- 10 of which he spent in a coma. By February 2011, Scott was well enough to get behind a drum kit for the first time and the band finally performed their promised label showcase. He has since made a full recovery. While in Nashville, the band met David Fanning from New Voice Entertainment at Sound Stage Studios. Alongside David the band recorded their hit “Musta Had a Good Time” in the back of their RV. Released in 2012, the song led to both their production and record deals. Their second Stoney Creek single, “Carolina,” was released to country radio in 2013. It reached #15 on the Billboard Country Songs chart.

Parmalee is a tight-knit Southern country-rock band consisting of brothers Matt Thomas (guitar, vocals) and Scott Thomas (drums), cousin Barry Knox (bass), and childhood friend Josh McSwain (guitar, keyboards), all of whom grew up together near Greenville, North Carolina. The brothers' father had a local band, and by the time they were teenagers, they were a part of it, gigging as Jerry Thomas & the Thomas Brothers Band, and Knox was recruited aboard as well. When the elder Thomas retired from playing, the brothers and cousin continued as the Thomas Brothers Band, working the local bar circuit, where they often crossed paths with guitarist, keyboardist, and longtime friend McSwain, who was in a successful cover band at the time. McSwain sat in with the Thomas Brothers Band one night in 2001 and the rest, as they say, was history. Rechristened Parmalee, the band meshed bluegrass, traditional country, Southern rock, and blues into a crisp, professional country-rock sound, spurred by solid songwriting and the fact that each member was a multi-instrumentalist. An EP, Daylight, appeared in 2002, followed by a full-length, Inside, in 2004. A second EP, Complicated, arrived in 2008. The band next signed with Stoney Creek Records and released a pair of singles, "Musta Had a Good Time" in 2012 and "Carolina" in 2013. Their first album for Stoney Creek, Feels Like Carolina, was released at the end of 2013. ~ Steve Leggett, Rovi

From this tiny town that’s home to a gas station, two blinking yellow lights, and a small tin- roofed barn dubbed Studio B, country rockers Parmalee launched their long journey to Nashville. The near-fatal robbery Parmalee experienced after a show would have destroyed most bands. But brothers Matt and Scott Thomas, cousin Barry Knox and longtime friend Josh McSwain didn't call it quits. Instead it reinforced their intense motivation and dedication to one another and to their determination to succeed.

Each obstacle that delayed Parmalee’s arrival to Nashville was an extra mile that allowed the groundbreaking sounds of artists like Jason Aldean and Eric Church to pave the way for the worlds of country radio and Parmalee’s brand of country music to meet at the perfect crossroad.

Parmalee’s country rock sound has its roots in the bluegrass, traditional country, southern rock and blues covers the guys grew up hearing their families play.

Matt and Scott Thomas grew up near Greenville, NC watching their father Jerry front a popular local southern rock blues band. The boys watched and learned, picking up their own instruments and jamming along with their dad's band. From this they learned how to integrate their own style into the songs they were playing. Barry Knox, who played drums for the church choir, loved what his cousins were doing and soon joined them.

All that practice paid off one night when Matt and Scott, then teenagers, snuck into a club to watch their father perform. "The guitar player got too drunk before the gig and didn't show," Matt explains. "I knew all the songs so my dad called me on stage. I was in the band from that point on." Scott replaced the drummer, and Barry learned bass in order to secure his spot in the band. The line-up became the newly minted The Thomas Brothers Band.

The Thomas Brothers Band cut their teeth on the local club circuit and would often share the same marquee with a cover band that starred their friend Josh McSwain on guitar and keys. Josh’s upbringing paralleled Matt, Scott and Barry’s. Josh also traveled and played with his father who was in a bluegrass band called “Get Honked.” A fan of Josh’s musical prowess, Matt invited Josh to play with Barry, Scott and himself. The foursome clicked immediately on stage. Their first gig was held at local watering hole, Corrigans, near East Carolina University where the guys went to school. From this moment in 2001 Parmalee was born.

The band set up camp every Tuesday and Thursday evening in the Parmele, NC barn they named Studio B after its original builder Mark Bryant. They added an extra “e” to the band's name to make it easier for those outside the area to pronounce it. “Tuesdays and Thursdays were the only nights we could all get together and rehearse – the rest of the time we were each out working in order to fund Parmalee,” Matt says. “Every person in town could hear us practice in the barn, so we also had to stop at 11 p.m. to be considerate of the neighborhood."
