Parmalee Bio

27861.

For the members of chart-topping country quartet Parmalee, those five digits are more than the postal code of their hometown (Parmele, N.C. – population 278). They’re a badge of honor, tattooed on each of their arms … and on each of their hearts. And now, it’s the title of their second album for Stoney Creek Records.

“We have been wanting to call an album 27861 for years now,” Matt explains. “Everybody has their own story, and...
