Jon Pardi shared the secrets of songs from his new Heartache Medication album on Thursday night (Sept. The unofficial kickoff of Pardi’s Heartache Medication Tour doubled as a showcase for other young country music stars, with Dillon Carmichael and RaeLynn as his opening acts.
I’ve heard his latest release on the radio, but this is a station that plays ‘ contemporary country ‘ , whatever that is. And, they seem to think that country music began in the 90s. So, they can’t be trusted, in my opinion.
Pardi has been on tour almost steadily since his debut album for Universal in 2012, mostly opening in arenas and stadiums. He’s spent most of 2019 as an opening act for Dierks Bentley — a good fit, as a headliner with his own sense of rowdiness and not quite as prominent neo-traditionalist leanings — after recent outings with Miranda Lambert and Luke Bryan. In the next year, though, Pardi is taking a time-out from going out on further superstar tours to free himself up for 2020’s country festivals, where he figures he can expose himself to an even wider array of fans, as well as theater headlining gigs like this week’s Ryman shows.
College football is my favorite sport, so being able to incorporate that with my music is really cool. Football fans are big country music fans, and they are the ones coming out to the shows and standing in the rain, crowd surfing or just waiting to get into the concert to have fun! This is a big debut and a big game, especially around Texas and it’s something that I’ll never forget,” said Pardi.
Pardi, a genuine country superstar, closed out the night with his own version of a Dive Bar Tour stop. The Buckhead Theatre isn’t a hole-in-the-wall but any means, but it was an intimate setting for Pardi’s stadium-ready stage show and a celebration of one of this fall’s most anticipated country albums. With Pardi’s star on the rise, it might be the only time these songs get played in a theater setting.
Life and love, truth and energy wind their way all through his debut album, which showcases a young artist who is clearly no ordinary newcomer. Few artists hit stride as quickly and as forcefully as he has, and his fellow artists have been among the first to take note.
Jon celebrates his album release with a show at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom tonight, and it will be live streamed on Amazon Music’s Facebook live beginning at 8:45 p.m. ET. On Monday (September 30th), Jon brings new music from Heartache Medication to the Jimmy Kimmel Live! outdoor stage.
This is definitely Pardi’s Loud Arena” album and for me it works. On this album, he may have too many upbeat songs and after a while, they may all sound the same, but none of them are bad and all of them will probably sound great live. This was a dangerous album for Pardi to make, but I think he survived. Great work.
In fact, Heartache Medication is bookended by songs that remind Pardi of specific family members, and how they impacted him as a musician and a person. Its opening track, Old Hat,” is a testament to his father.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Bestselling country duo of all time Brooks & Dunn, comedian and singer Ray Stevens and record executive Jerry Bradley have been inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in a star-filled ceremony. Reba McEntire, Luke Bryan, Trisha Yearwood, Ricky Skaggs, Marty Stuart and Travis Tritt were on hand Sunday evening to pay tribute to the inductees during the event in Nashville, Tennessee. Brooks & Dunn, with 20 No. 1 hits, have sold more than 28 million albums in the U.S. Stevens is known for his novelty songs like The Streak,” but also the Grammy-winning Everything is Beautiful.” And Bradley, as the head of RCA Nashville, signed artists like Alabama and Ronnie Milsap, while promoting the outlaws of country music.
During the heyday of bro country in the 2010s, Jon Pardi carried the torch for hardcore country. Pardi has never attempted to disguise his debt to traditional country, but he never attempted to be an Americana singer, either.
The 34-year-old musician popped the question on stage on Wednesday night at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville during the second night of his back-to-back shows as part of his headlining Heartache Medication Tour.
Capitol Records Nashville signed Pardi , sending him into the studio with producer Bart Butler “Missin’ You Crazy,” his first single, appeared in the spring of 2012, but it was the 2013 single “Up All Night” that gave him his first country Top Ten. Write You a Song , his full-length debut, appeared in early 2014. It peaked at 14 on Billboard’s Top 200 and three on their country albums charts.
Pardi’s second studio album, titled California Sunrise , was announced in March 2016, with a release date of June 17, 2016. 11 The album’s lead single was ” Head Over Boots “. 12 In 2016, this song became Pardi’s first number-one single on the Country Airplay charts; it also held the number-one position on the Billboard Year-End chart for Country Airplay. 13 After this came ” Dirt on My Boots “, written by Rhett Akins , Jesse Frasure , and Ashley Gorley , which also topped Country Airplay. 14 15 The album accounted for three more singles after these: ” Heartache on the Dance Floor “, ” She Ain’t in It “, and ” Night Shift “.
Jon Pardi’s new studio album Heartache Medication is at music retailers everywhere today (Friday, September 27th). The album features his current hit single and the album’s title track, along with 13 other songs, including a duet with Lauren Alaina.
In the very same songs, I loved parts and hated parts. I was ultimately so revulsed by some bro-country flourish that I shut it off. It’s been a little more than three years since Pardi released California Sunrise, but he is confident the wait will be worth it in the end.
Asked what he thinks has spurred the ’90s obsession, Pardi — a winner of best new artist awards from both the Country Music Assn. and the Academy of Country Music — mused that perhaps people miss the variety of songs from that era. If you listen to country radio now, there’s a lot of stuff that sounds the same,” he said as he sat backstage nursing a vodka-soda. He meant the endless parade of slick, lightly hip-hop-inflected hits by the many ballcap-wearing dudes for whom Luke Bryan looms as large as George Jones. Yet he was quick to clarify that country, with its complicated ideas about down-home authenticity, is always doubling back on itself.
Born in northern California, Jon Pardi formed his first band at the age of 14 and possessed plenty of stage presence even at that early age. After deciding to pursue music full time, Pardi moved out east to Nashville where he worked as a lifeguard by day and a musician by night. He quickly caught the attention of a music publishing company, landed a deal soon after, and began writing songs and recording demos for other artists. Label execs started to notice the country crooner, and he became known for his fun-filled lyrics and exciting performances throughout Music City. He broke out with his 2014 debut album Write You A Song, which peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard Country charts and featured the anthemic Top 10 single “Up All Night”. Since then he’s toured with country greats like Luke Bryan, Dierks Bentley, and Alan Jackson, earning thousands of new fans while on the road. Pardi continues to charm ticket buyers with his upbeat country pop tunes during his can’t-miss sets.
Pardi, a California native, won best new artist at the Country Music Association Awards in 2017 due to songs like Dirt on My Boots” and Head Over Boots,” both multi-platinum singles.
I have been really enjoying this record a lot. Exactly what I expected based on his early releases. I agree it’s not flawless (some production & lyrical issues for me) but overall it’s an extremely country effort & I think that is the most important thing considering he is mainstream and getting the steel guitar & fiddle some much needed spot light. There are only a few other mainstream acts doing country beside Pardi. He’s fighting the good fight & hopefully will start a trend.
If the voice can carry a tune and the song content is strong, I’m down. I really like what Jon Pardi is producing overall, and the traditional country gatekeepers like Alan Jackson and Dean Dillon seem to be on board, too.
Pardi is continuing to ride the wave of success from his latest album, California Sunrise. The platinum-selling release produced three consecutive chart-topping singles.
Since releasing his debut single, Missin’ You Crazy,” in 2012, Capitol Records Nashville artist Jon Pardi has held fast to his blend of high octane rhythms and boot-scootin’ country sounds, even as the hip-hop strains of bro country” dominated country radio around the same time.
Indeed, no fewer than 50 of them — family members, old high-school pals, guys he used to work construction with — chartered a bus from nearby Dixon, where the country singer grew up, to come see him open for Dierks Bentley at the Toyota Amphitheatre.
Heartach Medication will be the singer’s third album issued by Capitol Nashville. His breakthrough 2016 album, California Sunrise, was preceded by the lesser-known 2014 release Write You a Song.
In addition to appearances by Opry members, each Opry show also features a number of guest artists. Such guest lists can include the newest acts in country music, legends of the genre, and even artists from outside of country music who have been inspired or entertained by the Opry over the years.
He spent two-and-a-half years assembling the follow up, his third studio effort for Capitol Nashville, Heartache Medication, which releases today (Sept. 27). In that time, Pardi has become part of a new wave of artists making what could very well be a long-lasting mark on the genre, such as Midland and Cody Johnson, each in their own way latching onto traditional styles of country music that had been pushed to the margins of country radio.

Josh Ward’s live show and his music is composed of true Honky-Tonkin’, Lovin’ & Leavin’ songs, which is sure to dominate airwaves and dance-halls for years to come.
Pardi may seem like an “Old Hat,” but a few lousy dates led Summer Duncan to falling for this Jeff Hyde traditional country message. Taste of Country Nights host Evan Paul also pressed Pardi on his plans to marry her, to which he either demurred or dodged, we’re still not sure.
Heartache Medication is due out on Sept. 27, four days before Pardi’s album-promoting tour begins with a two-night stand at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium (Oct. 1-2).
If the title track is any indication, the hot streak begun with 2015’s multi-platinum single and airplay hit “Head Over Boots” and continued through 2018’s “Night Shift” won’t be cooling off any time soon once country DJs get ahold of future tracks. Read on to learn what we know so far about Heartache Medication.
UMG Nashville President Cindy Mabe said programmers pushed back initially on the roughness of Pardi’s voice as compared to smoothies like Blake Shelton and Thomas Rhett. He’s a honky-tonker,” Mabe said in a what-do-you-want-from-me tone. Yet they came around for Head Over Boots,” which topped Billboard’s country airplay chart on its way to selling 2 million downloads.
Not that Pardi isn’t committed to his music career also. The California native has been successfully juggling both maintaining his farm and working on his music, and sees no reason why he can’t keep doing both.
The 34-year-old Dixon, California native and now Goodlettsville, Tennessee resident has already climbed some seemingly insurmountable ladders, for somebody so grounded in classic country: His last album, 2016’s California Sunrise,” was embraced by radio and had three singles in a row (Head Over Boots,” Dirt on My Boots” and Heartache on the Dance Floor”) go No. 1 on Mediabase’s airplay chart. Now the question is whether he can make the leap from perennial opening-act-to-the-superstars to arena headliner status himself … and whether he can enjoy some of the same mainstream TV ubiquity that some of his bro”-ier counterparts have.
On his previous effort, California Sunrise, Pardi seemed determined to live up to his lively last name, whereas on his new project, he confidently alternates between dancehall-ready gems and slower material—and those downturns provide some of the album’s finest moments.
The influence of legends like Alan Jackson and George Strait permeate Heartache Medication, filled with clever lyrical twists and dancehall ready romps, such as the title track, penned by Pardi, Natalie Hemby and Barry Dean.
