Chanteur Country US né le 20 Mai 1985 à Dixon (Californie).
singer and sonoriser Jon Pardi,
born May 20, 1985, and raised in Dixon, California, discovered his love of
country music early, thanks in no small part to his grandfather's country
karaoke machine. Falling under the spell of traditional country artists like
George Jones and
George Strait, and with a special affinity for
Hank Williams Jr., Pardi
was playing guitar as a child, and was only seven years old when he belted out "Friends
in Low Places" at his father's 30th birthday party at a local hall. He was 12
when he started writing his own songs, and joined his first band at the age of
Country music was the only thing Pardi really wanted to do. He formed a duo with friend Chase McGrew after he graduated from high school, and the pair began playing the regional clubs and bars. Pardi and McGrew moved to Chico together to attend Butte Junior College, and for the next three years played in a local band called Northern Comfort. Pardi always knew he had to end up in Nashville, the home of country music, in order to fulfill his dream, and he moved there in 2008 when he was 23. He supported himself initially as a lifeguard, but he had developed into a natural narrative songwriter, and landed a publishing deal just 18 months after arriving in Music City. The publishing deal led to a lot of well-connected co-writing for Pardi, and he honed his writing skills even more, usually singing his own demos of the songs to shop around. His name got frequently noticed and recalled, and following a showcase gig with his band, Pardi signed a recording deal with Capitol Records Nashville.
Using friend and collaborator Bart Butler as producer (Butler had handled most of Pardi's demo sessions), he began recording his debut album. A first single from the project, "Missin' You Crazy," was released in the spring of 2012, with the album itself, Write You a Song, finally arriving early in 2014. It peaked at number three on the country albums chart, and rose to number 14 on the Top 200 listings.
In 2015, Pardi began work on his second album, and a track from the project, "Head Over Boots," became another hit, going to number 19 on the country singles chart. Pardi's sophomore album, California Sunrise, appeared in June 2016.
In September 2015, Pardi released "Head Over Boots," his first single from his second album, California Sunrise. "Head Over Boots" climbed to number one on Billboard's Country Airplay chart, helping California Sunrise reach number one on Billboard's Country Album chart; it reached 11 on their Top 200 album chart. Thanks to "Head Over Boots" and "Dirt on My Boots" -- a second single that bested its predecessor, reaching number one on Country Airplay and crossing over into the pop Top 40 -- California Sunrise turned Jon Pardi into a star. The album stayed on the charts through 2018, spinning off additional hits: "Heartache on the Dance Floor" went to three in 2017, "She Ain't In It" peaked at 21 that same year, while "Night Shift" reached 14 in 2018.
Pardi's third album, Heartache Medication, appeared in September 2019; its title track was released as the record's first single.
