Parmalee stopped by QDR to share their Hurricane Florence Relief song “Down Town.”
Parmalee is from Eastern North Carolina, so the devastation of Hurricane Florence really hit home for the band.
“It was pretty hard to watch. We were in Nashville, and started getting texts and videos and the news is going and the weather channel and we knew it was pretty bad back home. So, I knew we had to do something to help out. The next day, I went into the room to write a song and I was like ‘Look guys, I want to try to do something. Let’s try to write a song where we can help out, some how some way, maybe this thing will work out.’ That’s how it all came about. It’s our home town, these little towns where we grew up playing and we have so many fans back here. And we could just see how tough it was,” said Matt.
