Comprised of brothers Matt and Scott Thomas (lead vocals and drums), cousin Barry Knox (bass) and their best friend Josh McSwain (lead guitar), Parmalee are the quintessential American Country band. Named after the small town where the band started, Parmele, N.C. (population 278), the chart-topping quartet pays tribute their humble Carolina upbringings with their name and their sound. Raised on a diet of Southern rock, Country, and blues, they formed in 2001 as a bunch of small-town boys chasing wild weekend nights, but their talents eventually took them beyond the little cement block barn they rehearsed in and onto Country music’s biggest stages, not to mention the top of Billboard’s Country chart.
The band’s blue-collar persistence made their 2013 breakout single, “Carolina,” into a Platinum-certified #1 hit, while their debut album landed in the Top 10. Two more singles (“Close Your Eyes” and “Already Callin’ You Mine”) rose to #3 and #10 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart, all while they kept their noses to the grindstone, touring hundreds of dates a year. Awards nominations from the Academy of Country Music and Teen Choice Awards came rolling in, and headlining tours were launched but the hard-working virtues of their upbringing stand tall.
Nashville Tennessee’s SKYDANCER Entertainment Recording artist- Jeff Bates has been a staple in country music for over 15 years, delivering numerous hits such as “Long Slow Kisses”, “The Love Song”, and “I Wanna Make You Cry”. He has had more than 7 Billboard chart topping singles, six secular country music albums, one inspirational album, and one Christmas album.
Jeff’s most recent cd release, titled “TROUBLEMAKER”, has Bates going back to his hard core lyrical roots. It is composed of mixed genre titles, both country and Christian, with Bates singing songs that he says are “songs I’ve been wanting to get off my chest for a while. I’ve simply lived these lyrics.”
Hailing from Lincolnton, North Carolina, country music welcomes one of its freshest faces with Kelby Costner. Kelby recently teamed up with Grammy-nominated Producer and CMA/BMI songwriter of the year Ross Copperman (Keith Urban, Dierks Bentley, Blake Shelton) and Phil ‘Philbilly’ O’Donnell (Craig Morgan, Josh Thompson) for the production of his debut EP with his new single ‘I Need My Girl’ to be released January 10th, 2019’
