Jon Pardi shared the secrets of songs from his new Heartache Medication album on Thursday night (Sept. Heartache Medication is Pardi’s third studio album and the first since the critically-acclaimed California Sunrise from 2016. Several of the songs from the album were written four or five years ago and one was cut more than a decade ago, but he tells the story of ” Don’t Blame It On Whiskey ” better than we could in the video above.
On June 3, Jon will ship the album’s title track to country radio as his lead single. Co-written by Jon, Barry Dean and Natalie Hemby, Heartache Medication” finds the singer drowning his sorrows at a dive bar.
Born and raised in Dixon, California, Jon Pardi fell in love with country music when he was a kid, aided by the presence of his grandmother’s karaoke machine. He was drawn to hardcore singers from George Jones to George Strait , and he took a shine to singing, performing Garth Brooks ‘ “Friends in Low Places” at his dad’s birthday party when he was merely seven. Pardi picked up a guitar shortly afterward, attempting his first songs when he was 12 and joining a band when he was 14.
Using friend and collaborator Bart Butler as producer (Butler had handled most of Pardi’s demo sessions), he began recording his debut album. A first single from the project, “Missin’ You Crazy,” was released in the spring of 2012, and in 2013 Pardi cracked the Top Ten of the country singles chart with the song “Up All Night.” The album itself, Write You a Song, finally arrived early in 2014. It peaked at number three on the country albums chart, and rose to number 14 on the Top 200 listings.
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.
Jon Pardi Reflects On His Opry DebutJon Pardi stepped into the circle for the first time on October 19, 2012. He reflects about his first time playing the Grand Ole Opry in this special episode of his mini-series, My Name Is Jon.
We all want to play together and do our own music the way we want to hear music,” says Pardi. I’m not getting into artists that are bashing country music — I just don’t think that’s the right thing to do. When we’re trying to get on big festivals and you said something about this one person and you gotta go play the same stage with them. I just never wanted to be that guy.
The intro to Old Hat” (and the first few seconds of the entire album) had me SWEATING, panicking, curled up in the corner in the fetal position, I wanted my mommy. IS THIS BRO COUNTRY!? Was Jon Pardi a complete phony and sell out? Luckily, within about 5 seconds he redeemed himself, and now I can’t stop listening to the album. I think your review is spot on, Trigger, there’s some music you listen to, to improve your environment, make it more light hearted, and Jon Pardi is that for me. I’ll keep listening to Jinks and Childers and Sweeney when I’m looking for a little more.
Singer-songwriter Kip Moore ‘s journey is from that of a struggling Nashville musician to a massive country superstar with his mammoth 2012 debut album Up All Night, and an artistic adventurer with 2015’s sonically bold and critically revered second effort, Wild Ones. Moore’s 2017 album, Slowheart, was the culmination of an ever-evolving talent’s process of self-discovery, a warm and honest embrace of his rugged rock roots and a showcase for his innate poetic prowess.
I just love Jon’s new release. But then I love songs that most people can relate to during different time periods of their life. Gives you a lot to think about and put a part of yourself into the song. Favorites are Heartbreak Medication & Me & Jack.
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.
He soon developed his unique style and introduced it to the world in his 2014 debut Write You a Song,” that made him familiar to the suddenly-hip country crowd, thanks to his Top 10 party song Up All Night.” Pardi grew a raucous following, increasingly selling out 1,000-2,000 ticket clubs, sometimes out-performing higher-profile country acts playing across town the same night.
NASHVILLE (AP) – Jon Pardi wanted to make a video that showcased dancing beyond what he calls drunk cowboy dancing.” That’s how the Heartache Medication” video concept came about. One thing Pardi did not expect was people sending their own videos of that dance and wanting to know how to do the whole thing. Pardi says they only really went left and right in the video and he did not turn to switch directions, but he says he did not mean to make a line dance video anyway.
Pardi teamed again with frequent collaborator Bart Butler as a co-producer on the album, though this time, mixing engineer Ryan Gore also takes on a co-producer role.
West Coast native and fast-rising country music newcomer Jon Pardi ‘s Gold-certified 2016 album California Sunrise debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart, earning him CMA New Artist Of The Year and ACM New Male Vocalist Of The Year. Pardi dominated the top of the country music charts with consecutive No. 1 hits, including “Dirt On My Boots,” the Platinum-selling “Head Over Boots” and “Heartache On The Dance Floor.” California Sunrise is the follow-up to 2014’s Write You A Song, which debuted at No. 3 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart and yielded the Top 10 Gold-selling song Up All Night,” plus What I Can’t Put Down,” Missin’ You Crazy” and When I’ve Been Drinkin” (all of which Pardi co-wrote).
Jon Pardi will be headlining several shows as well as supporting Dierks Bentley in 2019. Catch the country music star in concert at venues such as the Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre in Illinois, the FivePoint Amphitheatre in California, the Ryman Auditorium in Tennessee and the White Oak Music Hall in Texas.
This determination comes naturally. At a time when virtually any other country singer in her or her 20s or 30s literally grew up on hip-hop and pop alongside whatever Nashville was bringing, Pardi is the rare example of what can happen when you’re a specialist and not a generalist, as a lifelong fan as well as artist.
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.
He grew up in Dixon, California, where he attended Dixon High School and graduated in 2003. He was interested in music since his childhood age and he had a dream of pursuing his career in singing since his early age. After high school, he moved to Nashville to pursue his music career.
His song received three stars from Taste of Country’s Billy Dukes. He released his second single titled Up All Night” in the same month in 2013 and became his first top 10 hit. His third single, What I Can’t Put Down, was also released that month in 2014. The album’s fourth single, When I’ve Been Drinkin, was released to country radio on September 22, 2014. On 5th February 2018, he released his new singles, titled She Ain’t In It.
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.
Even wilder, Head Over Boots” wasn’t a one-off. Pardi repeated the feat with Dirt on My Boots,” a state-of-the-art workingman jam that blended searing fiddle riffs with drum loops. Three more hits came from California Sunrise: Heartache on the Dancefloor” and Night Shift” made their way inside the Top Five, and She Ain’t in It” — a George Strait-styled breakup ballad — cracked the Top 20. It was an impressive (and rare) five singles off one album.
Duncan may not have any songs about her on Pardi’s new record, but she seems to be a permanent part of his life, which might include someday relocating from his current home outside of Nashville.
Jon Pardi put his music where his mouth was on this record, making good on the promise to double down on his roots, and do it his way. Co-produced by Pardi himself and including seven Pardi co-writes, this is a guy on the cusp of breaking out taking a chance that the next trend in country music will be country music, and being willing to lead that charge or come back on his shield. He’s even willing to cut against the grain by putting out a song called Old Fashioned” and another called Call Me Country” that confidently calls out what country music has become by referencing guys like Merle and Hank, and lyrics by Waylon and Willie, and how they’ve become ghosts on the radio.
Jon Pardi – “Forever and Ever, Amen”As part of “Forever Country” cover series during the CMA Award’s 50th Anniversary, Jon Pardi covers Grand Ole Opry Member Randy Travis’ hit “Forever and Ever, Amen”.
Born and raised in Dixon, California, Jon Pardi was introduced to country music while still in nappies; endeared to the music of George Jones and Hank Williams Jr. Making use of his grandmother’s country karaoke machine, the young singer made his debut at the age of seven at his father’s 30th birthday party with the single Friends in Low Places”. By the age of 12 Pardi was writing his own songs with musical accompaniment, and subsequently joined his first band aged 14. After graduating from high school Jon, alongside friend Chase McGrew, Pardi formed a country music duo who played the regional club circuit, before enrolling in Butte Junior College and performing with the group Northern Comfort.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Country traditionalist Jon Pardi is kicking off his third album just the way he likes his country music — with a fiddle intro. Pardi, whose 2016 album, California Sunrise,” shot him to the top of the country album chart, is releasing Heartache Medication” on June 3, a classic honky-tonk-style song that’s the first single from an album of the same name to be released Sept. 27.

Sunny Sweeney is prime country music and doesn’t get enough love in the comments here IMO. Is she still supposed to release an album this year? I didn’t see anything in the anticipated albums” thread.
Pardi gets painted with the traditionalist” label pretty often, and for good reason, but what he’s doing isn’t some nostalgic tribute act. Instead, it’s compelling evidence that old-school throwback influences and songwriting can feel very much of the moment and come with vibrant production. While the mellowness of Eighties country coursing through Heartache Medication is a novel touch, it’s balanced out by some of Pardi’s hardest-rocking material to date, with Tied One On” alternating between loping honky-tonk and spiky cowpunk with some furious drumming.

The 34-year-old Pardi has made this outlook something of a calling card since his arrival in 2012, fashioning a sound that was at once unmistakably steeped in classic country twang but equally capable of pummeling with rock & roll intensity. It was slow going at first: his earliest singles struggled to get any traction on the chart, with his second single Up All Night” the lone exception, glancing off the Top 10 in 2013.
Pardi says maintaining energy has become his most important dietary goal. He tries not to eat too much before a show. Still, he needs a boost. His secret: Kombucha. (Even country rock stars drink the stuff.) Pardi says it keeps him away from Red Bull, and since his upcoming tour will see him playing 85-minute sets—that’s rocking and rolling without a break—he needs a more sustainable drink.

Pardi co-produced Heartache Medication with Bart Butler, who also co-produced California Sunrise with the singer. The two are joined by Ryan Gore this time around as well.
Country singer and songwriter Jon Pardi, born May 20, 1985, and raised in Dixon, California, discovered his love of country music early, thanks in no small part to his grandmother’s country karaoke machine. Falling under the spell of traditional country artists like George Jones and George Strait, and with a special affinity for Hank Williams, Jr., Pardi was playing guitar as a child, and was only seven years old when he belted out “Friends in Low Places” at his father’s 30th birthday party at a local hall. Pardi was 12 when he started writing his own songs, and he joined his first band at the age of 14.
Fond of music from an early age, Jon began writing when he was merely 12. By the next two years, he had already formed his own band. The rising star’s fascination towards the music industry eventually led him to move to Nashville upon his high school graduation.
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.
