The band Parmalee is brothers Matt and Scott Thomas, their cousin Barry Knox, and childhood best friend, Josh McSwain.

“Having Just the Way go #1 is amazing! As an artist or writer, all you can hope for is that your music connects with people and makes them feel something. We’re proud to be a part of something that has been able to spread positivity throughout the world, especially over the past year.” Matt Thomas

Blanco Brown, Bennie Amey III, is a singer, songwriter, and producer. Blanco’s The Git Up was #1, July 13, 2019, on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart.

“I have to thank my Parmalee boys for believing in me, supporting me and allowing me to share my purpose with them it’s been quite the journey but we did it, boys!!! This song and this message going #1 is another beautiful blessing, I am so grateful to all of you that helped lead me to this incredible moment.” Blanco Brown

Blanco Brown survived a near-fatal accident in Atlanta last August 31, 2020, when his motorcycle collided head-on with a pickup truck.

He broke both of his arms, wrists and legs and his pelvis, underwent a 12-hour surgery and spent almost a month recovering in the hospital.

“Some days I feel like I’m 90 years old, some days I feel like I am 100 years old. Today, I feel like I am about 112 years old.”

“When you go through something like that, you choose to either be strong or you choose to let it break you. People that choose to let it break them they never really recover fully.”

“It’s been so exciting to see Just the Way take us to our next #1. We’re so thankful to everyone that helped get it there: our team, country radio and the fans, especially. This song is all about celebrating the women in our lives, so it’s even more special that it’s going #1 during Women’s History Month.” Matt Thomas

“When dreams meet reality, passion meets purpose. I’m blessed to do what I love for a living. A #1 on the radio at a time when there are so many other great songs and gifted individuals is unreal. Parmalee, we did it!” Blanco Brown

Just The Way was written by Matt Thomas, Kevin Bard, and Nolan Sipe.

It’s the first single from Parmalee’s upcoming seventh LP.

“I actually wrote it a couple years ago, but I knew when I wrote this song it had a special meaning. It had purpose and positivity. And so we were trying to figure out what to do with this song, how to release it, what to do next. We had, like, a little light bulb moment. Let’s call our buddy Blanco Brown.” Matt Thomas
