CMA Album of the Year nominee Jon Pardi is performing on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” tonight (11/5), ahead of CMA Awards week. Pardi is set to perform his current Top 10 single “Ain’t Always The Cowboy,” which made an impact as a song with “…a clever twist…” (Billboard) that “…gives more than a subtle nod to major Pardi influence George Strait,” (Rolling Stone). “Ain’t Always The Cowboy” is included on Pardi’s recently released Deluxe Edition of his critically-acclaimed album Heartache Medication, which debuted among the top of the Billboard Country Albums chart and was named as the only artist/album in the Los Angeles Times Best Albums Of the Year list.
Tune-in tonight to watch Pardi’s performance of “Ain’t Always The Cowboy” on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” at 11:35 p.m. ET/10:35p.m. CT.
Heartache Medication Deluxe Edition was released on the heels of Pardi’s first CMA Album of the Year nomination (his first nod in the category), his second consecutive ACM Album of the Year nomination, and the Platinum-certification of title track “Heartache Medication.” Soaring with “…fiddles, steel guitar and dive-bar jukebox energy…” (New York Times), critics hailed Heartache Medication as a blend of “honky-tonkin’, boot-stompin’ tracks about whiskey, women and song” (The New York Times) and called Pardi an artist that “…proves that Country music is still thrillingly alive” (Rolling Stone). Heartache Medication Deluxe Edition follows the release of Rancho Fiesta Sessions – an eight-song album that features a combination of songs Pardi is both inspired by, and loves to perform, and the roll-out of his 8-episode digital series “Pardi Time” broadcasting across CMT’s digital platforms.
