Rising country band Parmalee recently said that Eric Church helped them find a home in country music. The quartet’s sound is a blend of multiple musical genres and they found themselves struggling on how to label their music.

“There wasn’t really a category for us. We were a little too rock for country at the time and too country for rock. A little too country for pop,” the band stated during an interview with

The band members continued, “Nobody could ever put their finger on it and I think that’s why we did our own thing for so long. We made our own path and we did our own thing.”

Parmalee gives credit to “The Outsiders” singer Eric Church for breaking down barriers and allowing country radio to accept them.

“Because of acts now like Jason Aldean and Eric Church that kind of broke through country radio, we’re able to be where we are these days. They kind of paved the way for us,” the group allowed.

Parmalee’s debut singled reached number one on the Billboard country chart after a lengthy forty-two week climb. “Carolina” has been officially certified gold by RIAA. The group made an appearance on last week’s American Country Awards, the same week their debut record for Stoney Creek Records was released. Follow them on Twitter here.
