Country Stars Give Iowa Crowd Sneak Peek of Upcoming Project
One Cedar Rapids crowd was in for a treat Tuesday evening.
Named after the town in North Carolina, where they all met, Parmalee was pulling out all of the stops to win these Train fans over. On Tuesday, September 12th, crowds of people made their way to the McGrath Amphitheater in Cedar Rapids to see the ‘Hey, Soul Sister’ group.
It was Parmalee’s last show traveling with the three-time Grammy Award winning band, and they wanted to make it count.
They opened the show with songs like ‘Already Callin’ You Mine’ and ‘Close Your Eyes For This.’
Then things really got going…
Even casual fans of the group would recognize two of their recent radio hits ‘Girl In Mine’ and ‘Just the Way.’
Towards the middle of the song, Matt Thomas led the entire amphitheater in a quick snippet of ‘Dust on the Bottle.’
At this point, they had won this curious crowd over.
For me, the strongest part of Parmalee’s set was when the Academy of Country Music Awards winners gave fans a taste of their new and unreleased songs.
‘Boyfriend’ was next on the roster. This is their newest song, which I definitely can see becoming a hit on country radio.
After a few covers, the country stars got back into their own music catalogue with an unreleased track.
Thomas slowly fell to the floor of the stage to sing ‘Gonna Love You.’ This is a powerful ballad describing an even more powerful love.
Take a listen to it down below!
The band has even more new music coming out this fall. Parmalee will be dropping ‘For You 2” on Friday, September 22nd. It’s a deluxe version of their 2021 record “For You” which featured career defining hits like “Just the Way’ and ‘Take My Name.’
