Parmalee took the stage at the Washington County Fair on Friday, Sept. 14. Hurricane Florence was close enough to be bringing unpredicted, unscheduled, unwanted rain to the area. But, fortunately for Parmalee fans, that rain chose to pass us by on Friday night. Four years ago, when Parmalee performed at the Appalachian Fair in Gray, Tenn., we were not as lucky. But, in the midst of a very severe summer storm, this group proved how much they love what they do, and how much they want to entertain their fans, by taking their show into one of the fairground barns. If you missed that article, you might want to go back and check it out by clicking here.
The show on Friday night was everything Parmalee fans knew it would be. Their show included so many of our favorites, like, “I’ll Bring the Music,” “Already Calling You Mine,” “Back In the Game, “”Day Drinkin’,” “Hotdamalama,” :”Sunday Morning,” “Roots,” “Dance,” “Carolina,” and so many more!
There are a lot of country music bands out there today. A lot of really good country music bands. But, not all of them are this much fun to watch. Brothers Matt and Scott Thomas, along with their cousin Barry Knox and best friend, Josh McSwain, have figured out how to turn their hard work into a really good time for everyone watching. To say the audience is simply watching isn’t exactly right either. No one was ‘just watching’. People were tapping their feet, clapping their hands, smiling, singing along, and it’s pretty safe to say everyone in the audience was having a really great time!

I’m going to close this out with a few more photos from last Friday night’s show, will include a couple from the Meet & Greet, and thank the guys and their entire crew for not only meeting with fans before the show, but for coming out to sing autographs and pose for pictures after the show as well. It means a lot to fans when the artists go out of their way to give them a little extra time, after working so hard on stage.
