“Just The Way,” Parmalee and Blanco Brown’s feel-good anthem, has reached the top of the Billboard and Mediabase country charts in the U.S. and Canada.
The track has garnered more than 150 million on-demand streams in the U.S. alone, and is the second No. 1 for Parmalee, following their Platinum smash “Carolina,” which was also co-written by the band’s Matt Thomas. It also marks Brown’s first No. 1 on country radio. The upbeat, celebratory tune racked up millions of on-demand streams overseas as well, and has already been certified Platinum in Canada and peaked at No. 1 on the Canadian Billboard and Mediabase charts.
“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,” says Parmalee’s 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!!!,” says 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.”
Parmalee and Brown also released an acoustic version of the song, stripping it down to create a more tender tune. Friends for several years, the bond between Parmalee and Blanco has only grown since teaming up for this song, and the band has been a constant source of support for Blanco throughout his recovery following his life-threatening accident last September.
