Parmalee Unveils Emotional “Gonna Love You” Music Video
Parmalee has unveiled the music video for their new single, “Gonna Love You.” The song has a lot of meaning for the band. And the visual tells a true story behind a harrowing night for the country group.
The band consists of brothers Matt and Scott Thomas, cousin Barry Knox, and Josh McSwain. They were subject to an armed robbery on their RV after a show in 2010. Parmalee’s drummer revealed to People, “I had a 5% chance of living.” He had been shot three times outside of a club in Rock Hill, South Carolina.
Parmalee posted the following statement to Instagram on the “Gonna Love You” music video:
“For those of y’all who know us and our journey you know this story. For those who don’t, this is a true story and a pivotal moment in our lives and career. Sometimes a song finds purpose. Thankfully this song came into our lives when we felt it was time to tell this story. Yes, it was hard to re-create this. Yes, filming these scenes brought back so many emotions and memories.. but we’ve always tried to find the silver lining in everything. We hope that anyone who sees this can find hope no matter what they are going through, find love in places you would never expect to and most of all know that you can persevere no matter what the circumstances.. Thanks to everyone.. our families, friends, fans, musicians and bands who raised money for us, first responders, doctors and strangers we never met who prayed for Scott’s recovery. From this moment to where we are now, thanks to everyone who’s been a part of our lives, our career, and have helped us get to where we are today. We love y’all… Parmalee.”
The group recently released their extended album, For You 2, which features five new songs, including their No. 1 single, “Girl In Mine.”
