In other Parmalee news, the band has earned its second Top 40 hit with “Carolina.” “‘Carolina’ going Top 40 is really special for us since I think the song really defines our sound as a band,” Matt Thomas said. “‘Carolina’ is about how your loved ones make you feel at home no matter where you are – which is something we feel all the time being on tour. It’s really exciting to see fans connecting with the song.”
“On the road we’re hearing ‘Carolina’ on the radio everywhere,” Barry Knox said. “We’re so grateful to country radio and our fans for giving us our second Top 40 hit.”
