Comprised of brothers Matt and Scott Thomas (lead vocals and drums), cousin Barry Knox (bass) and their best friend Josh McSwain (lead guitar), Parmalee are the quintessential American Country band. Named after the small town where the band started, Parmele, N.C. (population 278), the chart-topping quartet pays to tribute their humble Carolina upbringings with their name and their sound. Raised on a diet of Southern rock, Country, and Blues, they formed in 2001 as a bunch of small-town boys chasing wild weekend nights, but their talents eventually took them beyond the little cement block barn they rehearsed in and onto Country music’s biggest stages, not to mention the top of Billboard’s Country chart.
The band’s latest release “Be Alright”, produced by David Fanning, is an emotionally-driven song about hope, knowing that when a relationship is struggling, things will work out for the best in the end. Matt Thomas explains “The first time we heard the song we loved it. We knew immediately we wanted to record it Parmalee style. It’s such a relatable song. We are just glad to have the opportunity to reimagine and record this for the Country music fans.” Australian singer and songwriter Dean Lewis originally recorded and released the global hit in 2018. Until now, it has never been recorded and released as a Country song.
