Today, Radio.com, CBS RADIO’s online and mobile destination for the best in music, sports, talk and news programming, exclusively premieres the official lyric video for Parmalee’s forthcoming single, “Close Your Eyes,” on radio desks now. “Close Your Eyes” is scheduled to impact Country radio on Monday, Feb. 3.
Watch the exclusive lyric video now on Radio.com through Sunday, Feb. 2 by clicking here.
The mid-tempo groove of “Close Your Eyes” conveys the sultry vibe of a warm summer’s eve in the countryside where the "perfect scene set of a moonlight glowin" and the "fireflies poppin' like the Fourth of July" set the mood for the flawless moment to lean in for a first kiss. Produced by Ford Fairchild, the lyric video paints that very picture.
"I remember hearing it ['Close Your Eyes'] for the first time and there was just something familiar about that song, and it seemed like I had heard it before... It was one of those songs I wished we had written,” said Barry Knox, bass player for Parmalee.
The Country airplay chart-dominators are currently semi-finalists for the ACM New Artist of the Year category. Parmalee fans can still vote daily at www.voteacm.com until Tuesday, Feb. 4 at 3:00 pm EST.
Stoney Creek Records’ Parmalee is a family band comprised of brothers Matt and Scott Thomas (lead vocals/guitar and drums, respectively), cousin Barry Knox (bass) and life-long best friend Josh McSwain (guitar). Influenced by such musical heavyweights as the Allman Brothers, Travis Tritt and Bob Seger, the band’s name is derived from the small town of Parmele, NC (population 262), which is home to a small tin-roofed barn dubbed Studio B where the band practiced on every given evening.
Parmalee recently dominated the country radio charts with the #1, GOLD-selling single “Carolina” which made history in 2013 as being the third-longest #1 trek in the Billboard Country Airplay chart’s 24-year history - as well as the longest run by a Vocal Duo or Group. “Carolina” was also voted #1 by fans on SiriusXM The Highway’s “Hot 30 LIVE” countdown.
Parmalee’s Top 40 debut country radio single, “Musta Had A Good Time” was voted #1 by fans for four consecutive weeks on SiriusXM The Highway¹s “Hot 30 LIVE" and its video reached #1 on CMT's PURE 12-Pack Countdown. The song has appeared on nationally broadcast sporting events from the NFL to the PGA and the MLB. In 2013, Parmalee was handpicked by MTV Networks to perform at the 2013 O Music Awards, selected by Southwest Airlines to launch the brand’s “Southwest Airlines Travelin’ Taylor Tour” series, chosen as a Billboard “Bubbling Under” artist and featured as a Clear Channel NEW! Artist to Watch.
Both hits “Musta Had A Good Time” and “Carolina” appear on Parmalee’s debut country album, FEELS LIKE CAROLINA, in stores now.
Parmalee will join Jake Owen this spring on the “Days of Gold” tour.
