  • JON PARDI AND BROTHERS OSBORNE WILL BE AT AN ‘ALL TIME HIGH’ ON TOUR.

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (August 24, 2015) – Capitol Records Nashville recording artist Jon Pardi announces today his headlining ALL TIME HIGH TOUR presented by Texas Roadhouse launching this fall. With 18 cross-country dates, the California native kicks off the tour in his home state at House of Blues in San Diego on Oct. 8. Fans can purchase tickets beginning August 28 at www.JonPardi.com with an exclusive presale for Pardi fan club members opening August 26.

    Joining Pardi on tour is ACM and CMT Awards nominated duo, Brothers Osborne. Topping the “2015 Ones To Watch” lists for Rolling Stone, Spotify, Paste, Country Weekly andNashville Lifestyles, the duo kicks off the tour as their current Top 30 single “Stay A Little Longer” fires up country radio charts, leading their forthcoming debut album expected early next year.

    With multiple sell-out dates on his debut headlining UP ALL NIGHT TOUR, Pardi answered the demand of fans to bring his dynamic live show back out on the road this fall following his run with Alan Jackson on the KEEPIN’ IT COUNTRY TOUR. Jackson notes, “Of all the new guys I’ve heard, I like that Jon is closer to country than most of the others and I think his songwriting is better than what I’ve heard in a while.”

    On the ALL TIME HIGH TOUR, fans can expect to hear their favorites from Pardi’s highly-praised debut album Write You A Song including Top 10 GOLD-certified hit “Up All Night,” “Missin’ You Crazy,” “What I Can’t Put Down,” as well as much-anticipated new music. In between his active tour schedule, Pardi has been busy in the studio writing and recording for his forthcoming sophomore album with the lead single from the project set to release in the coming weeks. On the ALL TIME HIGH TOUR, fans will have the unique opportunity to preview brand new music from the singer-songwriter.

    “Out of all the tours I’ve been fortunate to be a part of, this one is especially exciting because we’ve been building towards this moment for a while. I have been buddies with TJ and John [Osborne] since moving to Nashvill,e and we have talked about touring together for years. It’s finally here and going to be a blast,” shares Pardi. “I really love the new music I have been working on for the next album and cannot wait to start playing it out on the road for the fans.”

    “We have a long history of supporting country music. From our jukeboxes to line dancing among our staff, country music is a big part of the atmosphere at our restaurants,” says Kent Taylor, Texas Roadhouse, Founder and CEO. “We’re proud to partner with Jon on his ‘All Time High Tour’ and our guests can look forward to hearing his music in our restaurants.”

    Carving out a new path in the country marketplace and gaining an incredibly strong fan following on the road, Pardi has been praised by The New York Times as “redolent of the buttoned-up power-country of a couple decades ago” and NPR Music for his “clever way with wordplay” and “doing a good job of straddling two markets – what the large mainstream country demo wants, which is pop-country-rock as party anthems, and the smaller segment of the market that prizes its own concept of authenticity.”

    Joining Pardi on tour is ACM and CMT Awards nominated duo, Brothers Osborne. Topping the “2015 Ones To Watch” lists for Rolling Stone, Spotify, Paste, Country Weekly andNashville Lifestyles, the duo kicks off the tour as their current Top 30 single “Stay A Little Longer” fires up country radio charts, leading their forthcoming debut album expected early next year.

    Jon Pardi (Bros Osborne tour) OC: …good time. :22
    “Starting it! No.. I look forward to the most touring with the Brothers- there’s going to be lots of jammin’ and I love John. He’s a great guitar player and they like to jam and I think it’s going to be a big part of the encore. The big jam session at the end and just all the fun we’re going to have and you know we’re going to play a lot of House of Blues and it’s always got cool theaters and looking forward to seeing the fans and having a good time.“

    Brothers Osborne (Jon Pardi tour) OC: (John) …good fit. :51
    TJ: “It’s gonna be great. I mean, Jon’s one of those guys – I think our music’s pretty different, but we equally love playing. Jon’s a fun guy. He’s crazy as hell. There’s no reason for them to see two artists play the same style, so it’s gonna be pretty fun to have two kind of new artists, label mates, get up on stage and [perform]. We’re good buddies with Jon and respect Jon and love his music, so to be able to share the stage with him and give the audience kinda two different flavors of today’s country, it’s gonna be fun. It’s cool. I’m really looking forward to it. I really, to be honest with you, have no idea what to expect, but I feel really, really confident that it’s gonna be a good time, good show.” JOHN: “I love going out with Jon too, because he does his own thing. He’s not following any trends. He’s being himself. He’s true to his music, and that’s how we are as well, so I think it’s gonna be a good fit.”

  • JON PARDI HEADS DOWN SOUTH FOR A SAFARI TRIP.

    Jon Pardi turns 30 on Wednesday (May 20th), and he’s celebrating by heading over to South Africa on a special hunting trip with his father, who’s been to the country a few times. The trip will also be featured on the Sportsman Channel TV series, Safari Hunter’s Journal.

    Jon’s a little wary about the misconceptions of hunting in South Africa, saying he doesn’t want to shoot what he calls “Disney characters,” making reference to The Lion King, but he will go to this 55,000 acre preserve to hunt the plains animals, which number in the millions. Everything they kill will go to feed undernourished folks.

    “There’s so much good stuff you can do in South Africa. And then when I got the chance to go on a TV show and go there, it was like, ‘Hey! Come here. There’s a game preservation and we’ve got all kinds of animals and we’ll go hunt the plains game.’ I was always like, ‘Well, I can’t be shooting Disney characters and stuff. Let’s just keep it to the herd animals where we get to go feed people with ‘em.’ So, we planned it out, and it’s gonna be a lot of fun,” says Jon. “We’re gonna really talk about [how] people don’t really understand hunting and how it helps them manage. I don’t know everything about it, but I’m gonna learn so much about what they do and how they keep it. This place I’m going to has put more animals in South Africa through hunting and management, so now there’s more African animals in this whole preserve than there was in the 1800s. They just have so much care for what they’re doing.”

    Jon just released a new EP this week, The B-Sides, 2011-2014, featuring six previously unreleased songs.

    Jon Pardi (So. African safari) OC: …eco-system. 1:18
    “My dad’s been to South Africa twice. He’s told me it’s the most beautiful, awesome majestic place to just sit and be at and also hunt and work. He built campsites with a motor grader and runways. He tracked down poachers. There’s so much good stuff you can do in South Africa. And then when I got the chance to go on a TV show and go there, it was like, ‘Hey! Come here. There’s a game preservation and we’ve got all kinds of animals and we’ll go hunt the plains game.’ I was always like, ‘Well, I can’t be shooting Disney characters and stuff.

They just have so much care for what they’re doing. It’s cool to be able to go to a place like that to hunt and see like their own little eco-system.”

  • JON PARDI READIES THE ‘B-SIDES’ FOR RELEASE.

    Jon Pardi is set to release a six-track EP, The B-Sides, 2011-2014, which he says is a precursor to his sophomore album that he’s currently working on in the studio. The EP includes six songs that were in consideration for his debut album, and many of his fans already know the songs by heart since he’s been playing most of them during his live shows.

    “It’s always really humbling when somebody comes up and they would say those titles. I’m not expecting anything crazy out of the EP,” says Jon. “I’m just putting new music out that’s been lying around that I think deserves to be heard and on iTunes, and for people to listen to. I’m excited about the EP, and here’s something you can listen to while I’m in the workshop trying to get this thing perfectly right for the sophomore release.”

    The B-Sides is available on Monday (May 18th).

  • MOTHER’S DAY AUDIO: AJ, Darius, Dierks, Church, Paslay, Jon, Keith, Lady A, LBT, Shania and more!

    Some of your favorite country stars will be celebrating Mother’s Day on Sunday (May 10th). Check out Mother’s Day memories and moments from our artists, including Alan Jackson, Darius Rucker, Dierks Bentley, Eric Church, Eric Paslay, Jon Pardi, Keith Urban, Lady A, Little Big Town and Shania Twain, among many others.

    Audio / Alan Jackson’s wife Denise wrote a book, It’s All About Him: Finding The Love Of My Life, that chronicled the couple’s relationship and marriage. It was a huge success, debuting at number-one on The New York Times Best-Sellers List when it was released several years ago. Alan believes her accomplishment set a really good example for their three daughters, showing that a mom can do things outside of the household, too.

    AJ (Mday) OC: …to see that. :30
    “I think it’s been great for them to see her do something out there that’s, again, not typical for a parent at all. But she’s a great role model for them anyway and always has been, whether she did anything professionally or not. I could see it in their eyes, you know, that they were surprised — very surprised, and also, I could see them with interest looking at her thinking it was special for her to do that. So, I think it was a very good thing for the kids to see that.”

    Audio / Darius Rucker talks about not disappointing his beloved mother, who passed away a few years ago.

    Download

    Darius Rucker (Mother’s Day) OC: …killed me. :17

    “I think that’s the main reason I am how I am…an innate fear of disappointing my mom.  My mom’s not even alive, and I have a fear of her looking down from heaven and going, ‘Man I’m just disappointed in my son.’ She could have said anything in the world to me, but if she would have said, ‘Son, you just disappointed me,’ That would have killed me. It would have killed me.”

    Audio / Darius Rucker says the best thing he can give his wife on Mother’s Day is his time…and to take the kids off her hands for a little while.

    Download

    Darius Rucker (wife on Mother’s Day) OC: …try to do. :20

    “I think the best Mother’s Day gift my wife would say I’ve given her is to let her not have to deal with her kids. [laughs] But, I’m not really a good gift-giver. I’m not gonna lie. And my wife and I have a deal that if you want it, just get it, so when it’s time to buy gifts, it’s hard to do. But, I think my time is the best thing I can give to my family, because I’m on the road so much. So, that’s what I try to do.”

    Audio / Dierks Bentley talks about Mother’s Day in regards to his wife, Cassidy.

    Download

    Dierks (Mother’s Day) OC: …something great. :23
    “When it’s your actual mom, you know, there’s some slack there, but when with your wife – any touring husband, anyone who tours who has kids and a wife back home, it’s tough man. It’s a lot of work. So, I definitely need to step up to think of something great to do this Sunday, for sure. But nothing yet. As usual, I’ll probably get something last minute and hopefully, it’ll be great, though. She deserves something great.”

    Audio / Eric Church says he’s learned quite a bit from his mom.

    Eric Church (Mother’s Day) OC: …as a man. :57
    “My mom, even though my dad won’t like this, my mom is by far the toughest person that I’ve met. She’s tough. One of those people that’s been through a lot in her life, adversity wise and never complains, always really resilient with anything that’s happened to her. And it’s just that attitude, the positive attitude, regardless of what has happened that I think is the one thing that I got from her. With career, she’s always been a person that’s been really positive through times that I couldn’t find a positive streak, [laughs] and she was always really positive, and very much believes in tough it out, keep working hard, and that’s her motto with stuff like that. I’ve always been impressed with that stuff. Then musically, she’s where I get my talent from, musically. She sings great, always has, her mom sang great. I owe my musical chops to her. And she still sings some. So, career-wise, I owe her everything. And just in life-wise she’s given me a lot of the qualities that it has taken for me to get me where I am. Not only as a musician, but as a man.”

    “My mom’s always been there for me. First of all, she’s a great mom. She’s an angel. She takes care of people that aren’t even in the family. She’s always been like that, and she’s a great mother. She’s always proud, and she’s always there supporting and being a great mom. She’s just a good human being. There’s not one mean bone in her body. And she cries about every time I talk to her. She always worries about me. I have to tell her, ‘Stop worrying about me.’”

    Keith Urban (Nicole is extraordinary mother) OC: …to see. :45
    “She’s an extraordinary mum, she really, really is. Those girls are very, very lucky, and I feel very lucky that the children I should have in this world happen to be with Nic. I don’t know anything about raising kids and Nic does, and that comes in extremely, um, it’s really made for an experience I wouldn’t have had without that. Her patience, her recognizing them as people and not just little kids is really extraordinary. Her attention to honoring their feelings and listening to them right from day one – really being attentive to that is not how I was raised at all, so it’s really beautiful to see.”

    Lady Antebellum (Charles Kelley-Mother) OC: …playing music. :23
    “We were honestly, at times, pretty hard to handle, both of us. We used to play our music loud up above on the second floor [of the house], bang on the drums and the guitar. And my mom’s just one of those people, she’ll do anything for her family and she sacrificed a lot for us boys. Anytime we needed something, she made it happen. And so, we owe her a lot. She’s definitely the reason we’re playing music.”

    “Being a mother is a life-long dream for me. When I was a kid, that’s what I wanted to be is a mama. It took a long time. I wasn’t ever sure that I would be, but I am now, and it’s the greatest gift of my life. And as I’m a mother now, I see what my mother gave up and her sacrifices and her love and how she made us the most important thing in her life, and that’s what I strive to do for my little girl. It’s the most important job I have, and it’s the most responsibility that I have, and I try to live up to a great example that I had for my mother.”

    “There isn’t anything that means more to me than sitting on the bench and eating a grilled cheese sandwich with this little guy who calls me Mama. There isn’t anything better than that. He’s just a little miracle. I went from dreaming about him to eating grilled cheese sandwiches and ketchup with him, and I could never have dreamed this up – how good it could be, and it just gets better every day.”

  • JON PARDI OFFERS UP THE ‘B SIDES’ ON MAY 19TH.

    JP B SIDES

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (April 28, 2015) – While country music traditionalist Jon Pardi is working on his sophomore studio album, he is responding to fans’ demand for more music with his May 19 digital EP release, The B Sides, 2011-2014.

    The B Sides features six previously unreleased tracks recorded for consideration for Pardi’s debut album, Write You A Song.  Although they did not make the final track listing for Write You A Song, hence The B Sides title, Pardi continues to play many of these songs in his live show. Fans have learned the lyrics over time and sing along, yet have not been able to personally own the tracks until now.

    As he did with ten of the titles on his “Best of 2014”-named Write You A Song, Pardi co-produced and co-wrote all of the songs on The B Sides.

    The B Sides, 2011-2014 Track Listing:

    1. Fightin’ The Fool (Jon Pardi, Bart Butler, Davy Ulbrich)
    2. Over My Head (Jon Pardi, Trent Summar, Gary Nicholson)
    3. Drinkin’ With Me (Jon Pardi, Britton Cameron, Doug Kahan)
    4. Back on the Backroads (Jon Pardi, Davy Ulbrich, Rich McCready)
    5. Rainy Night Song (Jon Pardi)
    6. Borrowed Time (Jon Pardi, Keith Follese, Adrienne Follese)

    Pardi recently partnered with VEVO for “Intro to the Pardi,” an exclusive three-part documentary following his journey from rural northern California to Nashville. The series also chronicles his debut album release on Capitol Records, as well as touring with some of today’s country legends. View Part I HERE.

    Pardi is currently on tour with Alan Jackson on the Keepin’ It Country Tour. For tour dates, news and more, visit www.JonPardi.com.
