CMA Album of the Year nominee Jon Pardi releases Heartache Medication Deluxe Edition today. Featuring three new bonus tracks- “Bar Downtown,” “Beer Light” and “Ain’t Always The Cowboy (Western Version),” the expanded album of his critically-acclaimed album Heartache Medication celebrates the one year anniversary of the original album release and his first, back-to-back headlining shows at the famed Ryman Auditorium (10/1-2/2019). Teaming up again with longtime collaborators Bart Butler and Ryan Gore, the triple threat producer, singer and songwriter co-produced all three new tracks. “Bar Downtown” premiered on Rolling Stone Country yesterday (10/1) and fans can listen to the full 17-track Heartache Medication Deluxe Edition HERE.
Heartache Medication Deluxe Edition comes on the heels of Pardi’s recent, second consecutive ACM Album of the Year nomination and his current CMA Album of the Year nomination (his first nod in the category). With the release of his highly-lauded album Heartache Medication, Pardi doubled-down and “…cut a path through modern country by stubbornly sticking to fiddles, steel guitar, and dive-bar jukebox energy” (The New York Times). Critics hailed his blend of “honky-tonkin’, boot-stompin’ tracks about whiskey, women and song” (The New York Times), named him the only country artist/album represented in the Los Angeles Times “Best Albums of the Year” list (#4) and called him an artist that “…proves that Country music is still thrillingly alive” (Rolling Stone).
The ACM/CMA winning artist recently became the first country artist to have two #1 singles on Country Radio in 2020. Heartache Medication Deluxe Edition follows the release of “Ain’t Always The Cowboy” (Western Version) and Pardi’s RANCHO FIESTA SESSIONS– an eight-song album that features a combination of songs Pardi is both inspired by, and loves to perform-and his ACM/CMA nominated album, HEARTACHE MEDICATION. Pardi is currently nominated for CMT Awards’ Collaborative Video of the Year category for his collaboration on the #1 hit single “Beer Can’t Fix” with Thomas Rhett.
