Jon Pardi may be a new voice in Nashville, but he’s gaining momentum with fans and music critics. He’s got to be celebrating seven sold-out album release shows for his debut effort, Write You A Song, on which Pardi co-wrote ten of the 11 tracks, including the recent Top Ten single “Up All Night” and previous Top 25 tune, “Missin’ You Crazy.”
Pardi is being praised for his traditional sound and fun, festive melodies. NPR’s Ken Tucker notes Pardi’s ability to “maintain a certain roughness, and [he has] a clear fondness for more hardcore honky-tonk music.” New York Magazine music critic Jody Rosen commends Pardi’s “excellent songwriting.”
Pardi’s refreshing style resonates with country music audiences. That translates to record crowds for the newcomer and a string of sold-out album release shows stretching from coast to coast.
In addition to joining Dierks Bentley on the RISER Tour, Pardi will be on select tour dates with Thomas Rhett beginning this Friday in Baton Rouge, La.
