Without a doubt, Parmalee is right up there at the top of our ‘favorites list’ here at Country’s Chatter. They are giving us great country music, and they are very fan-friendly. A lot of our readers will remember how awesome these guys were to their fans, when their show at the Appalachian Fair in Gray, Tenn., was rained out last August. They weren’t about to let them cancel the show, however – taking us indoors to a sheep barn for their performance! If you missed that write-up, I do hope you will go back and read it (by clicking here). And, a press release we received recently just proves they are still doing everything they can to show all of their fans that they appreciate them – and, to show our U.S. Military that they appreciate them, too! The press release is below, with a few pictures of this trip, and a link to their “Already Callin’ You Mine” video on VEVO.
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, People.com 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.
Watch the lyric video for “Already Callin’ You Mine” on VEVO.
