CMA Album of the Year nominee Jon Pardi was surprised with an RIAA Platinum certification plaque for his hit single, “Heartache Medication” while working on an excavator on his property, on Tuesday (10/6). Pardi’s Manager Melanie Wetherbee was tasked with delivering the plaque on behalf of UMG Nashville, Pardi’s label home. In a special video, Pardi thanked the songwriters, co-producers, his managers, the label and his fans. Watch the video, here: https://youtu.be/dW8tirxdJvU.
“Heartache Medication” topped both the Billboard and Country Aircheck/Mediabase charts and garnered millions of on-demand streams, marking Pardi’s fourth #1, joining previous chart-topping hits “Dirt On My Boots,” “Head Over Boots” and “Heartache On The Dance Floor.” “Heartache Medication” is the title track off Pardi’s critically-acclaimed album Heartache Medication. His current single “Ain’t Always The Cowboy,” off that same album, is currently Top 15-and-climbing on the Billboard Country Airplay charts. For more information, visit www.jonpardi.com.
Jon Pardi (Heartache Medication song) 1 OC: …singing it a lot. :41
“I love this song. This title is kind of different, you know kind of about drinkin’, getting to feel better, kinda lost somebody, it’s time to move on, but you’re not sad. You’re happy. It’s feel-good, kind of like medication that you need. So, ‘Heartache Medication’ that’s kind of the way we wrote it. I wrote it with Natalie Hemby and Barry Dean – great writers. It’s very upbeat and traditional, but it’s also just, I think, relevant in a way that it picks you up when you’re feeling down, or if you’re feeling good, it makes you feel extra good, and who doesn’t like a good ole fiddle intro? So, I think it’s gonna be awesome, and I hope y’all dig it, and I’ll be singing it a lot.”
