Parmalee Bids Farewell to Summer Snacks

Fairs and festivals end and so does deep-fried goodness.

Tour season is slowing down for most country artists, including Parmalee. The band plays its last shows of the year next week. But these road dogs admit that even though they’re looking forward to a few weeks of holiday fun with the family, they’ll miss the the fun of touring, especially last summer’s fairs and festivals.

The group’s Josh McSwain says, “I’d love to go do every single one of those again. We had some of the best food this summer.”

And what was everyone’s favorite? For Barry Knox it was a bacon-wrapped jalapeño corn dog from the New York State Fair. For Matt Thomas, it was roasted ears of corn. But for Scott Thomas and Josh, it was a bacon bomb—a bacon-wrapped pork tenderloin deep-fried and served on Texas toast with cheese.
