Ever since they put out their romantic "Take My Name," Parmalee have found a new hobby: crashing weddings to surprise the bride and groom with a performance. It's a habit they picked up around Valentine's Day, and they're still at it this summer.
"It's interesting because you never know what you're getting into when you go on these things, and it's their special day," says the band's Matt Thomas.
"The last one we did was fun," adds Josh McSwain. "We didn't know these people at all. We just walked right in on their reception and started singing and playing."
That experience was memorable for another reason, too: They had a surprising encounter with fans while they were on their way from the show they'd just played to the wedding. "It's 30 miles away, and we notice there's a car behind us," Barry Knox says.
When they're not crashing weddings, Parmalee is gearing up for tour: They're hitting the road with Walker Hayes this fall.
