How Jon Pardi Summoned Country Music Ghosts On ‘Heartache Medication’ Rolling Stone

Jon PardiJon Pardi shared the secrets of songs from his new Heartache Medication album on Thursday night (Sept. The American country singer Jon Pardi born on 25th May 1985, is known for his neo-traditional style of music. He signed with the record label company Capitol Nashville and subsequently released three studio albums. Impressively, he made the Hot Country Songs and Country Airplay Charts with nine of his ten singles.

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”.

The internet has made the term “underrated” almost meaningless, but RaeLynn really doesn’t get enough credit as one of the better pop-oriented songwriters and vocalists on the national touring circuit. Between a recent tour with Maren Morris and this chance to perform at last night’s RSVP-only party, that might get rectified sooner than later. As for her set, a mix of prior album cuts and new tracks, plus a brief rendition of Ariana Grande‘s “Thank U (Next)” , got the crowd pumped for Pardi.

Jon Pardi is in a relationship. He is dating Summerfawn Duncan. She is a hairstylist and she owns The Tangled Salon & Spa. The couple was seen making their first public appearance in 2017 Country Music Awards where he won the award for New Artist of the Year. The couple started having an affair from June 2017. Jon’s mother is also very fond of his girlfriend as regards to her Instagram post.

Still, it was the classic country music his grandmother exposed him to that set him on his path. She had this karaoke machine, and she’d play tracks and we’d sing along,” he recalled. Pardi learned to play guitar at age 9 and was writing songs by 12; after high school he gave college a try before moving to Chico and forming a band that didn’t last. Once in Nashville — where he lives today on a 15-acre spread with room to park the bus — it took him a while to get things going, he said, but eventually he landed a publishing deal and later signed a contract with Capitol Nashville. His debut album, Write You a Song,” came out in 2014 to warm reviews if minimal radio interest.

Pardi split from McGrew in 2008, heading to Nashville to attempt to break into the country music business. While working as a lifeguard, he hawked his songs, landing a publishing deal 18 months after his arrival. Pardi began placing songs and attracting attention as a performer.

What I’ve noticed over the last few days with Jon Pardi, is if you were already a fan of his, and enjoyed California Sunrise. You are going to feel about his current album the way I do. If not, there will be mixed feelings, which you can see from the above comments. Not saying one is right and the other is wrong, just a simple observation.

The Nashville resident and originally a Clovis, California native, Summer’s social media suggests the couple’s been dating since June 2017. That’s when the picture with her musician boyfriend first surfaced on the internet as she took to Instagram to share a photo together.

The singer’s mate Dierks Bentley was at the event and took to Instagram to share the special moment of Jon’s proposal that brought an ovation from the Music City crowd.


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.

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.

Church’s band member Jeff Hyde contributed the album’s opening song Old Hat,” which he originally recorded for his 2018 solo effort Norman Rockwell World. It boasts some Allmans-style twin-guitar harmonies and cutting-edge, beat-driven production even as it sings the praises of an old-school frame of mind.

Last year, Pardi and Alaina co-hosted the ACM Honors at the Ryman Auditorium, where they celebrated Alan Jackson by collaborating on Jackson’s classic Chasin’ That Neon Rainbow.” The two singers and their teams felt their voices blended well enough to try a recorded collaboration.

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.


The songwriting on this record is pretty terrible, and the drums are generally too loud and heavy. I love all the fiddle and steel though, it’s so nice to see this kind of instrumentation of a mainstream album.

In 2017, Jon Pardi won New Male Vocalist of the Year at the Academy of Country Music Awards and New Artist of the Year at the Country Music Association Awards. He has also been nominated for two CMT Music Awards, one additional CMA Award and an American Music Award.


Twang, fiddle, steel guitar, songs about drinking and heartache, it’s all here, and in ample doses, and from a guy who isn’t just a bit player or 3rd tier personality in popular country, but a performer who’s often getting to play to arenas, has two #1’s on radio, five Top 5’s, and another song climbing the charts as we speak that starts on the fiddle and features an honest to goodness steel guitar break. Pardi will also have his second #1 album in a row when the stats for Heartache Medication come in.

Jon and his fiancée Summer are dating for two years. And now, it looks only a matter of time before they get married. Fans, meanwhile, are curious to know when this delightful duo decides to organize their big day and embrace each other as husband and wife.

Right now, a nation full of people that just finished watching Ken Burns’ 16-hour Country Music” series, not having actively listened to the genre in some years, or ever, is turning to radio to see what’s new that might be on a happy continuum with the historic country they just saw and heard. And in a lot of cases, they might be going: Huh? Unless they happen to tune in at a time when Jon Pardi ‘s rising single Heartache Medication” is playing, in which case they won’t feel burned at all.

There’s a lot of songs and subjects that this album talks about, and it could be sad like a loss, or just kind of down, but the songs lift you up. They put you in a higher place,” Pardi said.

While it’s nice to hear the fiddles and steel guitar, these two songs aren’t very interesting. I also can’t get past the flatness of his vocals. It sounds like country music, it feels like country music, but it doesn’t make me want to listen to more.

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.

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.

Jon started writing songs when he was 12 years old. When he was 14, he formed his own small band in his school. He has been a very active member of the singing industry since 2012. He released his debut single, Missin’ You Crazy” in March 2012. It debuted at number 58 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs chart for the week of April 14, 2012.

Pardi has been learning a lot as a perennial opener on Dierks Bentley’s arena tours for a couple of years now, as well as opening for Miranda Lambert last year and headlining a CMT tour. But he’s ready to take control of producing a full headlining show, especially at some historic country music venues.

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.

Singer-songwriter Jon Pardi is taking over the country airwaves with his popular hit “Up All Night”, and he brings the song to life during his energetic live shows. Combining gritty guitars with his southern drawl, Pardi gets fans wild and rowdy when he rocks the stage sporting his white electric guitar and matching cowboy hat. Whether he’s taking a shot of Jack between songs or interacting with his fans, Pardi puts on one helluva performance that ticket buyers won’t soon forget.
