Pardi headlines CMT fall tour
Thursday, June 1, 2017
– Jon Pardi will headline the 16th annual CMT On Tour this fall, it was announced Thursday.
Pardi will be supported by Midland and Runaway June on the CMT On Tour Presents Jon Pardi's Lucky Tonight Tour.

No specific tour dates or cities were announced.
