“I really wanted the new version to sound like a song from a movie soundtrack,” said Jon Pardi. “I talked to my co-producers and we were able to come up with a version that I feel is totally different, but still keeps the integrity of the song. I loved how it turned out!”
The country star’s critically acclaimed third studio album, Heartache Medication (Capitol Records Nashville), is nominated for this year’s ACM Album of the Year award, and it has earned praise from NPR, Associated Press, The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Billboard, ET, People, Variety, Rolling Stone and more. Pardi’s corresponding headlining Heartache Medication Tour rocked the fall with sold-out dates across the country from Nashville to Bakersfield while the title track hit No. 1 on the country radio airplay charts.Heartache Medication is the follow-up to Pardi’s Platinum-certified album California Sunrise. California Sunrise debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart and helped earn the California native CMA New Artist of the Year and ACM New Male Vocalist of the Year titles. Pardi dominated the top of the country music charts with consecutive No. 1 hits including multi-week chart-topper “Dirt On My Boots,” the Platinum-selling “Head Over Boots” and “Heartache On The Dance Floor,” plus Pardi’s Top 20 hit, “She Ain’t In It” and his Gold-selling Top 5 working-man’s mantra, “Night Shift.” Pardi’s debut album, Write You A Song, yielded top-10, Platinum-selling hit “Up All Night,” “What I Can’t Put Down,” “Missin’ You Crazy” and “When I’ve Been Drinkin.’” For more information, visit www.jonpardi.com.
