Pardi achieves All Time High
Monday, August 24, 2015
– Jon Pardi will launch a headlining tour, the All Time High Tour, this fall, he announced Monday.
With 18 cross-country dates, the California native kicks off the tour in his home state at The House of Blues in San Diego on Oct. 8. Brothers Osborne will open the shows.
"Out of all the tours I've been fortunate to be a part of, this one is especially exciting because we've been building towards this moment for a while. I have been buddies with TJ and John (Osborne) since moving to Nashville, and we have talked about touring together for years. It's finally here and going to be a blast," said Pardi. "I really love the new music I have been working on for the next album and cannot wait to start playing it out on the road for the fans."
Pardi, 30, has released one full-length CD, "Write You a Song" in 2014," and an EP, "The B-Sides, 2011-2014" in May. He enjoyed hits off the full length with "Missin' You Crazy" and "Up All Night."
Brothers Osborne have a Top 30 single "Stay A Little Longer" with a debut album expected early next year. T.J. is the lead singer, and John plays lead guitar. The brothers are signed to EMI Nashville and have released three singles and one extended play in September 2014.

CD reviews for Jon Pardi
Jon Pardi apparently isn't worried about chasing something new. He makes that clear on the opening "Out of Style" where he sings "The common way we work and play/Are still alive and well today/Don't' need to find a new way to say/We don't get out of style." He may not have penned the song, but Pardi continues mining a more traditional sound on his recordings (his live shows tend to rock far too much as if he's trying to figure just who he is musically). »»»
Write You a Song
Jon Pardi is an anomaly these days - you're not going to hear any rap or hip hop in the debut from this California native. Nor proclamations about how great farm life is. Yes, you'll hear rocking vocals and instrumentation at times, but the 11 songs are far more steeped in country than most anyone out there today.
That means there's twang in the forceful vocals - a healthy dose of it - plus pedal steel and fiddle (both are prominent on the title track, which has a sort of Jerry Lee Lewis feel). »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk
When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Stapleton shows his traditional roots
Chris Stapleton's All-American Road show feels like a singular mission to rid the genre of the bro country scourge that has plagued it for years. He came out with a blazing one-two punch of "Second One To Know" and "Without Your Love" and packed a stadium sized onslaught into a 9,000-seat arena. He never once veered from his... »»»
Concert Review: Jinks wins over fans, especially new ones
Cody Jinks asked the crowd a bit into his show how many had never seen him before. It seemed like Jinks has made a lot of musical inroads into the public's consciousness because roughly three quarters of the audience raised their hands to show that this was their first time.
That probably made Jinks feel pretty darn good about how life has been... »»»
