Parmalee Travel Six Countries in Nine Days on Navy Entertainment Tour

Parmalee recently returned to U.S. soil after embarking on its first Navy Entertainment Tour, taking the chart-toppers through six countries in nine days to perform for our U.S. military troops.

Also the band’s first-ever trip overseas, the whirlwind journey took them through England, France, Ethiopia, Qatar, Bahrain, Camp Lemonnier in Djibouti, Africa, as well as aboard the USS Dewey, a destroyer ship in the Persian Gulf, and the USS Carl Vinson, an aircraft carrier ship.

Today, revealed exclusive stories and photos from the band of brothers’ life-changing Navy Entertainment Tour. Read the full article HERE.

“Probably the coolest, most touching moment is when we went to play on the battleship the USS Dewey,” lead singer Matt Thomas told People. “We were on the big aircraft carrier, the USS Carl Vinson and then we took a helicopter to the small battleship. They told us when we got on that battleship that some of these people have been active 14 years and have never had anybody come visit them. The entertainment always goes to the big ships, but nobody ever comes to the small ships.”

Country music’s “band of brothers” continues to ascend the U.S. country radio charts with new single, “Already Callin’ You Mine,” the follow-up release to consecutive hits “Carolina” and “Close Your Eyes” from the band’s debut album FEELS LIKE CAROLINA.

Jake Owen, The Band Perry and Brantley Gilbert to Headline Country Summer


Northern California’s biggest country music festival, Country Summer presented by Lithia RAM of Santa Rosa, has announced 13 of 14 entertainers performing June 5 to 7 at Sonoma County Event Center at the Fairgrounds, 1350 Bennett Valley Road.

Executive Producer Alan Jacoby says plans are in the works for an audition competition inviting fans to vote for the country music act that will open the show. “Stay tuned,” he said. “We will be announcing details soon.”

Country Summer 2015 superstar headliners include Jake Owen on June 5, The Band Perry on June 6 and Brantley Gilbert on June 7.

In addition to the headliners, the June 5 lineup includes Gary Allan, Chris Young and Parmalee; June 6 includes Lee Brice, Jerrod Niemann, Frankie Ballard and The Swon Brothers; and June 7 includes Trace Adkins, Easton Corbin and Cassadee Pope.

Country Summer is produced by Impact Entertainment and Sonoma Media Group, the owner of Froggy 92.9 and other leading radio stations serving Sonoma County.

This year, Country Summer anticipates attracting more than 33,000 fans with more video walls and enhanced staging and sound. Between main acts on the Montgomery Village Stage, there will be a secondary stage featuring additional country musicians and groups.

While performances by country music artists are the main attraction, great festivals are more than great music. Country Summer is a destination country celebration with Western-themed attractions, an expanded 2015 Food Court with country-inspired delights and an array of libations to please every palette — from Bud Light for beer drinkers to wine and spirits at the Leese-Fitch Wine Garden and the Jack Daniel’s Saloon.

“Country Summer 2015 is off to a great start with an incredible lineup of country music’s most popular entertainers,” Jacoby said. “We are also very pleased to welcome our new presenting sponsor, Lithia RAM of Santa Rosa, as well as an array of new and second-time sponsors supporting the event.”

Daily tickets start from $69 for general admission, $99 for reserved seats. A limited number of discount three-day packages are available.  To purchase tickets, visit or call 800.514.3849 to order by phone.


Check Out Parmalee’s Lyric Video for “Already Callin’ You Mine”


Parmalee stormed out of the gate with their new single “Already Callin’ You Mine.” The follow-up to the band’s recent Top 3 hit, “Close Your Eyes” debuted with 48 first week reporting stations– the band’s highest first week add total at U.S. Country radio to date.

With an undeniably catchy, up-tempo hook, “Already Callin’ You Mine” tells the universal story of young love that falls hard and fast.

“It’s a song about that crucial moment when you change your Facebook status from ‘single’ to ‘in a relationship. It’s a total game changer,” describes Matt Thomas, lead singer for Parmalee.

Yesterday, People Country got in on the action, revealing four new “Parmalee-fied” Facebook relationship status options – one for each member of the ‘band of brothers’ who won over the hearts of Country music fans with the multi-week chart topper “Carolina.” Find out who’s “In The Doghouse” and who’s “Pharrelled” in the candid feature that also premieres the lyric video for “Already Callin’ You Mine.”

Co-penned by Parmalee lead singer Matt Thomas and bass player Barry Knox (alongside hit songwriters Phil O’Donnell and Wade Kirby), “Already Callin’ You Mine” is winning over fans and critics alike. USA Today highlighted the song as one of the best from Parmalee’s debut album, FEELS LIKE CAROLINA, while Billboard called the song “a buoyant hit-to-be.”
