FEELS LIKE CAROLINA ALBUM REVIEWS

“The massive success of. . .hit song “Carolina” has elevated this country quartet to the big leagues. Their major-label debut is a sold mix of Kid Rock-esque party jams, as well as surprisingly sweet monster ballads. . .” ~ People magazine

“. . . [a] deeply amiable album. . .while Parmalee makes misbehavior sound cuddly, it’s especially well equipped for regret.
