Parmalee, nominated for New Vocal Duo Or Group Of The Year
What You Need To Know: In 2001, brothers Matt and Scott Thomas got together with their cousin, Barry Knox, and longtime best friend, Josh McSwain, and it wasn't long before Parmalee was formed.
A few years—and a couple albums later—the band started receiving widespread acclaim for their song "Carolina," which appeared on their 2013 album Feels Like Carolina. Since then, "Carolina" has been certified Gold and the group has released two more hit singles, "Close Your Eyes" and "Already Callin' You Mine."
