The wait for country rock band Parmalee’s music video for the party anthem, “Musta Had a Good Time,” is finally over. The band released the highly anticipated music video earlier this week.
Directed by Wes Edwards (Jason Aldean, Thompson Square) the video was shot at an infamous party house only a few miles from Music Row in Nashville, TN. The set, which boasts a cast of over 70 extras – including several professional stunt performers – was originally meant to only embody the lyrics of the song – but turned into it’s own creature as the night wore on.
“It was pretty overwhelming. You couldn’t look anywhere and not see something totally ridiculous,” says Parmalee guitar player Josh McSwain. “The video shoot was only supposed to look like the party described in the song but at some point the shoot actually BECAME the party. We even got kicked out of the house we were shooting in!”
“None of our friends back home will be surprised at what they see in the video,” says lead singer Matt Thomas. “In fact they’ll be mad that they weren’t in it!”
“Musta Had A Good Time” was recently voted by country fans as the No.1 song on The Highway’s “The Hot 30 Live” countdown for four consecutive weeks. The song leapt to No.42 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs Chart and No.41 on the Country Aircheck chart (powered by Mediabase) this week and is nearing 90,000 downloads sold. “Musta Had a Good Time” has also been featured in national sporting event broadcasts for the PGA and MLB. The song was also included on CountryMusicIsLove’s Top 15 Songs of Summer 2012.
Parmalee was recently featured as a Billboard “Bubbling Under” artist and is ClearChannel’s NEW! Artist to Watch (Country) for August.
