“I love the beach I love football. We’re down here in Florida so the beach is awesome. I mean I’m so glad to be here it’s going to be a good time today,” Matt Thomas of Parmalee said.

Parmalee’s hit song “Carolina” made the hometown band an instant sensation but they’re just getting started.

“We just wrote a song on the bus a minute ago, we didn’t realize we did that, we just did it. It was really cool so I mean I think the excitement of like coming up with some idea and everyone gets pumped up about it so we’ll go back and finish the song,” Thomas said.
