Monday night via Facebook Live, platinum-selling country band and North Carolina natives, Parmalee announced that it will return to its roots to headline the second annual “Feels Like Carolina” concert at East Carolina University in the Minges Coliseum. Parmalee premiered its current single “Roots,” an anthemic homage to the band’s hometown, at the inaugural homecoming last year while headlining Minges Coliseum’s 8,000-seat arena. Parmalee has made the “Feels Like Carolina” concert an annual event as a tribute to its home state of North Carolina and as a way to thank the community for its years of support.
This year, the annual concert will be accompanied by fellow Thompson Square and harmonic-newcomers, Runaway June. North Carolina native and local favorite, Luke Combs along with RCA Nashville artist Dee Jay Silver will also perform and round out the lineup.
“We had a blast last year and are so excited to return to our alma mater and make this an annual event,” lead vocalist, Matt Thomas says as he reflects on last year’s show. “We thought, what better way to thank the community that has stood behind us all these years. We are honored to call North Carolina home and can’t wait to get back there and see all the familiar faces. Come on ya’ll, it’s gonna be a blast!”
