Jon Pardi’s ‘CMT On Tour Presents Jon Pardi’s Lucky Tonight Tour’ Fills Venues To Capacity At Soaring Levels

Pardi’s Momentum Builds with American Music Awards Favorite Song in Country Nomination and Multiple CMA Award Nominations Including New Artist Of The Year

New Single “She Ain’t In It” Impacts Radio On Oct. 23rd

Jon Pardi’s “CMT On Tour Presents Jon Pardi’s Lucky Tonight Tour” is filling venues to capacity at soaring levels. Selling out venues nationwide with audiences ranging from 1,000-5,500, Pardi’s traditional sound and tireless work ethic are picking up fans at a rapid pace including his recent first-time headlining performances at Grayson Stadium in Savannah, GA (10/13) with the most tickets sold since Bob Dylan in 2005 (Bradley Jordan, Peachtree Entertainment) and his upcoming performance at Billy Bob’s in Fort Worth, TX this weekend (10/21).


“Selling out a show at Billy Bob’s Texas is no small feat and very rarely does it happen well before the day of show. In fact, the last show to sell out days in advance of a performance was Florida Georgia Line in November 2013,” said Chris Spinks, Marketing Director for Billy Bob’s.


The 17-date trek kicked off on Oct. 12th and features special guests Midland and Runaway June. Nearly all tour stops are already sold out including major cities across the country; Chicago, IL, Milwaukee, WI, Detroit, MI, Silver Spring, MD and more. Opening weekend sold out in advance and all stops for the second week of performances are sold-out in Houston, Austin and Fort Worth, TX.


Pardi’s momentum continues to build with the recent American Music Awards nomination for Favorite Song – Country with smash-hit “Dirt On My Boots.” Stacking up an impressive year of accolades,  the reigning ACM New Male Vocalist Of The Year is also nominated for CMA Awards New Artist Of The Year category and “Dirt On My Boots’” is up for two categories including Single Of The Year and Song Of The Year.


Pardi just released his fourth single “She Ain’t In It,” which impacts radio on Oct. 23rd. He recently celebrated his third, consecutive No. 1 single “Heartache On The Dance Floor” on Mediabase charts. “Heartache On The Dance Floor”  follows the Platinum-selling No. 1 song “Head Over Boots” and three-week No. 1 smash “Dirt On My Boots” from Pardi’s #1 debut and Gold-certified album California Sunrise.


Pardi’s sound is undeniably country and his laid back, fun-loving approach towards life comes through in his music and his raucous live show. The California native’s charisma and authenticity strike a chord with country audiences and fellow artists alike. The rising country star has toured with Luke Bryan, Eric Church, Dierks Bentley and Zac Brown Band, and he was hand-picked by country legend Alan Jackson to join him on his 25th anniversary tour. He will join Miranda Lambert’s Livin’ Like Hippies Tour in early 2018. For a full list of tour dates and more information, visit www.jonpardi.com.

Jon Pardi Plays To A Sold Out Crowd At George Dickel’s Porch Sessions

On Saturday, August 12th, country singer Jon Pardi played to a sold out crowd at George Dickel’s 3rd installment of their summer concert series called Porch Sessions.

It was a balmy summer night with the audience dancing and singing along in pure delight to the country singer’s more traditional sound.  The George Dickel whisky was flowing and it was a truly festive atmosphere at Cascade Hollow, a picturesque setting and the distillery’s home.

For me, it was a perfect way to enjoy the last remnants of summer as I enjoyed some great music from a rocking chair sitting on the porch at George Dickel Distillary out in the beautiful countryside sipping on my George Dickel Dickelade cocktail while taking it all in away from the crowd.  I’m pretty sure this is just what they intended when creating the series.  Maybe I took it TOO literal? Well, sometimes you just need to slow way down and take in all of the simple things life has to offer.  This is one of them.

The final Porch Sessions is taking place the end of September, and I’m sad to see it come to an end.  I have certainly enjoyed my visits out to George Dickel’s Cascade Hollow in Tullahoma.  Just a short day trip down the road from Nashville.  Tours of the distillery are available daily and encourage everyone to take a day off, sip on some Dickle from a rocking chair on their porch taking in the beautiful surroundings of the serene countryside setting that is Cascade Hollow.
