It's almost time for Untapped Music Festival (presented by Mid Valley Auto Group), and the lineup this year is better than ever! In addition to world-class blues acts, the country/rock stage is heating up with huge acts! Headlining the Country/Rock stage is the hot upcoming country band Parmalee! From a small towns in NC, they overcame hardships and the long road to Nashville.

Their country-rock roots stem from bluegrass, country, and rock which they blended together to create their own incredible style. The band members (brothers Matt and Scott Thomas, Barry Knox, and Josh McSwain) have rocked stages all over the country and we're honored they're coming to jam in the Tri-Cities!

Along with a loud and loyal fan-base they are also loved by the critics. Their debut album "Feels Like Carolina" got rave reviews from People, The New York Times, USA Today, and Billboard. In 2014, Parmalee earned a semi-finalist nod for the Academy of Country Music’s “New Artist of the Year” award, a 2014 Teen Choice Award nomination for “Choice Country Group."

Parmalee is one of the bands you MUST SEE at Untapped, so make sure to get your tickets ASAP! See you in May, guys!
