Celebrating More than 1 Billion On-Demand Streams to Date as a Band, Parmalee’s Newest Viral Sensation “Girl In Mine” Will Impact Country Radio on August 22
Platinum-selling band Parmalee today releases their next single “Girl In Mine,” the follow up to their back-to-back No. 1 hits. After their No. 1 hit “Carolina,” Parmalee has seen a resurgence that is “one of the most under-reported success stories of the last year” (Morning Hangover) — first with their multinational No. 1 smash “Just the Way” with Blanco Brown — which was the most played song on iHeart Country in 2021 – then their recent multi-week smash hit “Take My Name.” Now that they’ve just hit more than 1 billion on-demand streams (and counting) in their tenure as a band, Parmalee continues their new recipe for success with “Girl In Mine,” impacting U.S. Country radio on August 22.
The song was written by Matt Thomas, Ashley Gorley (who has garnered more than 60 No.1 songs at Country radio), David Fanning (who also produced the track), Travis Wood and Casey Brown. Like “Take My Name,” “Girl In Mine” had fans hooked on the song after teasing it on TikTok. With more than 1.8 million TikTok views of frontman Matt singing the chorus, TikTok creators have mimicked the video and put their own spin on it.
“With ‘Just The Way’ and ‘Take My Name,’ we really found something that connected with our fans,” says Matt Thomas of Parmalee. “We look forward to continuing that with our new single ‘Girl In Mine.’”
In July 2021, Parmalee released For You, a 13-track project which garnered critical acclaim with American Songwriter praising it as “authentically real, genuinely inspired,” Sounds Like Nashville predicting it to be the “next big move in their musical journey” and Billboard saying “Parmalee finds itself in the enviable position of being able to tap into multiple audiences. Primarily written by Parmalee lead singer Matt Thomas, For Youdraws from personal experiences to speak directly to the heart of their fans, honing in on that connection to make for their most harmonious project yet.
Parmalee is currently on tour with Walker Hayes in addition to headlining their own dates
ACM “New Vocal Duo/Group of the Year” nominee Parmalee is one of Country music’s most successful acts: the Platinum-selling band of brothers is one of only four groups since 2001 to earn three consecutive Top 10 singles from a debut Country album. Since their debut at Country radio, Parmalee has earned over 1 billion on-demand streams.
