About Jon Pardi
Born and raised in Dixon, California, Jon Pardi fell in love with country music when he was a kid, aided by the presence of his grandmother’s karaoke machine. He was drawn to hardcore singers from George Jones to George Strait, and he took a shine to singing, performing Garth Brooks’ “Friends in Low Places” at his dad’s birthday party when he was merely seven. Pardi picked up a guitar shortly afterward, attempting his first songs when he was 12 and joining a band when he was 14.
Pardi released his third album, Heartache Medication, in September 2019, which spawned the hits “Ain’t Always the Cowboy” and the chart-topping title cut. The following year saw him issue Rancho Fiesta Sessions, an eight-song collection of cover songs.
