Jon Pardi Gets Engaged During Ryman Show

Jon PardiIt’s a good thing that Jon Pardi is a big guy. One of the album’s most hopeful moments is its final track, Starlight,” an uplifting and bluegrassy ballad that Pardi penned in 2014 with co-writers Jeffrey Steele and Bart Butler. The song’s message speaks to the power of belief, and how the lessons loved ones teach us continue to guide us even after they’re gone.

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 broke out onto the Nashville scene by finding his way into the songwriting community and learning from songwriters like Brice Long who co-wrote Randy Houser’s ballad Anything Goes” and Gary Allan’s No. 1 single Nothing On But The Radio.” Pardi also became particularly close with Bart Butler, who emerged as Pardi’s co-producer.

Great compared to other major-label country albums, but those are very low standards to beat. When there are other lesser-known artists out there putting out amazing albums that actually need the support, I would much rather listen to them instead. I do thank Jon for trying though, and hopefully this is part of a bigger trend towards more traditional-sounding country in the mainstream.

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.

But as is said often around these parts, just because something is real country, doesn’t mean it’s real good, and to be honest, the drinking songs grow a little weary during the 14 tracks of Heartache Medication. It’s not that Me and Jack,” or Tied One On,” or Buy That Man A Beer” are in any way offensive individually. But the same theme starts to get tedious one song after another. Tequila Little Time” may get you to let out a little chuckle at first, but the sandy beach bum styling of the song reminds you too much of bad Kenny Chesney. And though Don’t Blame It On Whiskey” is one of the most talked-about songs on the record since it was co-written by Eric Church and Miranda Lambert with Lauren Alaina singing harmony, the folk-style beginning saps some of the energy out of what is otherwise a decent song.

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.

Country music was the only thing Pardi really wanted to do. He formed a duo with friend Chase McGrew after he graduated from high school, and the pair began playing the regional clubs and bars. Pardi and McGrew moved to Chico together to attend Butte Junior College, and for the next three years played in a local band called Northern Comfort. Pardi always knew he had to end up in Nashville, the home of country music, in order to fulfill his dream, and he moved there in 2008 when he was 23. He supported himself initially as a lifeguard, but he had developed into a natural narrative songwriter, and landed a publishing deal just 18 months after arriving in Music City. The publishing deal led to a lot of well-connected co-writing for Pardi, and he honed his writing skills even more, usually singing his own demos of the songs to shop them around. His name got frequently noticed and recalled, and following a showcase gig with his band, Pardi signed a recording deal with Capitol Records Nashville.

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.

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.

Jon Pardi is an American country music singer, songwriter, and record producer. He is currently singled to the American record label Capitol Records Nashville. He released his debut album, Write You A Song in January 2014. He has released two studio albums, one extended play, and six singles that have charted on the Hot Country Songs and Country Airplay charts. His latest release is She Ain’t In It, which was uploaded to YouTube on 5th February 2018.

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.

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.

Fortunately, Summer didn’t take the lack of love songs personally. Pardi says that he actually wrote several, thinking he might include some on the record, but they simply weren’t right for Heartache Medication’s theme. They just didn’t fit in with the pile of songs that were really winning right now. So we’ll probably have a bunch of them on the fourth record — I don’t know,” he muses.


On 27th September 2019, Pardi released his third solo album called Heartache Medication. During one of the interviews, he revealed Duncan played a crucial role in convincing her fiance to come up with his song titled Old Hat.

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.

From the album’s first notes, Pardi makes it clear that he was raised on honest-to-goodness country music, even as he infuses it with a little more fire. One of the album’s tracks, Call Me Country,” unabashedly namechecks influences like Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings.

In September 2015, Pardi released “Head Over Boots,” his first single from his second album, California Sunrise. “Head Over Boots” climbed to number one on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart, helping California Sunrise reach number one on Billboard’s Country Album chart; it reached 11 on their Top 200 album chart. Thanks to “Head Over Boots” and “Dirt on My Boots” – a second single that bested its predecessor, reaching number one on Country Airplay and crossing over into the pop Top 40 – California Sunrise turned Jon Pardi into a star. The album stayed on the charts through 2018, spinning off additional hits: “Heartache on the Dance Floor” went to three in 2017, “She Ain’t In It” peaked at 21 that same year, while “Night Shift” reached 14 in 2018.

Jon Pardi kicked off his Heartache Medication Tour in style, with back-to-back shows at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium on Oct. 1 and 2. Jon’s encore on night two was one for the books, as he got down on one knee and proposed to girlfriend, Summer Duncan.

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.

In addition to the album and single, Jon will launch his Heartache Medication Tour with back-to-back shows at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium on Oct. 2 and 3, followed by additional stops in Milwaukee, Seattle, San Diego, Phoenix and more. Riley Green will serve as direct support.

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.
