“Just the Way,” the collaboration between Parmalee and Blanco Brown, is now No. 1 on the Billboard and Mediabase Country radio charts in the US and Canada. This is Parmalee’s second No. 1 – the first being “Carolina,” which was also co-written by the band’s Matt Thomas. It also marks Brown’s first No. 1 on country radio.
“Having ‘Just the Way’ go No. 1 is amazing! As an artist or writer, all you can hope for is that your music connects with people and makes them feel something. We’re proud to be a part of something that has been able to spread positivity throughout the world, especially over the past year,” said Thomas. “Thank you to our fans, Country radio and everyone on all platforms who believed in us and have helped us spread the message behind this song.”
“I have to thank my Parmalee boys for believing in me, supporting me and allowing me to share my purpose with them—it’s been quite the journey but we did it, boys!!!,” said Blanco Brown “This song and this message going No. 1 is another beautiful blessing, I am so grateful to all of you that helped lead me to this incredible moment.”
Written by Matt Thomas, Nolan Sipe and Kevin Bard and produced by David Fanning, Parmalee and Blanco Brown also released an acoustic version of the song.
