ACM/CMA award-winning artist Jon Pardi is set to release his highly-anticipated album, Heartache Medication, on Friday, September 27th. Originally announced by the Associated Press, the critically acclaimed album was featured by The New York Times and named as one of Billboard’s Most Anticipated Albums of Fall 2019. Noted by NPR as “an emboldened work… a distilling of his sound into a more potent form that draws both vitality and assurance from his anything-but-sterile relationship to his tradition’s modern era,” Heartache Medication can be streamed exclusively via NPR’s First Listen now ahead of its release Friday.
The California native kicks off a week of live performances and media beginning tonight with Pandora’s Live Concert Series broadcasting on SiriusXM’s The Highway (Ch. 35) from the Buckhead Theater in Atlanta. Later in the week, Pardi will take the stage for an exclusive performance from YouTube’s New York headquarters (9/25), and an iHeartCountry Album Release Party hosted by Bobby Bones (9/26) airing across iHeartMedia’s Country radio stations nationwide (HERE), before his headlining album release show at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom (9/27), following a stop at AOL BUILD. On Monday (9/30) Pardi brings new music from Heartache Medication to the Jimmy Kimmel Live! outdoor stage before returning to Nashville for back-to-back, sold-out headlining shows at the famed Ryman Auditorium as part the Heartache Medication Tour.
Recognized for his “state-of-the-art blend of traditional instrumentation and progressive grooves that points to country’s future” (Rolling Stone) and as “a leader among a growing number of artists …finding ways to freshen the sound” (People), Heartache Medication is the follow up to Pardi’s co-produced, Platinum-selling breakthrough #1 album California Sunrise, which featured Multi-Platinum, chart-topping hits including “Dirt on My Boots,” “Head Over Boots,” “Heartache on the Dancefloor” and “Night Shift.”

Jon Pardi (Heartache Medication album) 1 OC: …thought out record. :53
“This record, Heartache Medication, was, I was always writing after California Sunrise was done. I mean I think I turned in the record and we wrote the next day for Heartache Medication, and that song was ‘Call Me Country.’ So, that was written in 2016. So, there’s a lot of stuff that you would never know was that old, even ‘Heartache Medication,’ the song, is almost three years old now. And California Sunrise, we had a three-year life out of that and that’s amazing, but I was always working on a new record. I wanted to work on this record in three sessions to break up the time, instead of being like, ‘We need a new record. We need it now!’ I didn’t want that to be a thing, so it was like, ‘Boom, here’s the record.’ Three sessions. A lot of fun, and it was a very thought out record.”
