Parmalee + Beer Pong = a Smash

Parmalee + Beer Pong = a Smash

When the guys from Parmalee—Matt, Josh, Scott and Barry—came into the Nash offices on Friday (May 6), we thought it was going to be another ordinary day. Boy, were we wrong. Their new song is called “Roots,” so we thought it was only natural for us to go back to our roots. OK, they were our college roots, but we still got the guys to play a little game called Beer Pong. You know, the game that consists of tossing Ping-Pong balls into cups of beer.

We started out on a serious note as Matt told us about the new single. “The song ‘Roots’ is about your roots, the things that make you who you are, the things you did growing up, the people that surround you, all those things that kind of stick with you throughout life. In the song, it’s just like you can’t outrun those no matter where you go.”

Well, you can’t outrun a serious game of Beer Pong either. Watch as Nash Nights Live co-host Elaina Smith and NNL producer Ryan Kershner take on Matt, Josh, Scott and Barry of Parmalee.

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde’s This Town Talks tour gets rolling next month in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Then for the next 7 months she’ll be crisscrossing this nation playing shows from Georgia to Montana and everywhere in between.

So, with all that travel, and different locations, packing for a tour can present some challenges. Ashley shares one basic piece of advice when it comes to preparing for the road, “At first, learning how to pack for on tour…I really didn’t do a good job. I guess maybe I thought I was leaving for summer camp. So, I would spend a couple of weeks where I overpacked, and a couple of weeks where I under packed. Just let me tell you…if you have to choose between the two – overpack. You can put those clothes away when you get back.”
