Platinum-selling singer/songwriter Jon Pardi gave a first glimpse into his new highly-anticipated album Heartache Medication today. During an exclusive listening party held at his Nashville property, the CMA and ACM Award-winner took time to introduce his yet-to-be-released 14-song album ahead of the title-track’s official radio impact date on June 3rd. Along with Universal Music Group Nashville Chairman & CEO Mike Dungan, Pardi discussed his forthcoming album, which has Pardi returning as a producer for a 3rd time (California Sunrise, Write You A Song) and once again pairs him with California Sunrise, co-producer Bart Butler with Ryan Gore joining as first-time co-producer.
The California native revealed the official track listing and Heartache Medication cover art for the album, which is set for release on Sept. 27th, and was recently announced by the Associated Press, HERE. Title track “Heartache Medication” has already been featured in Rolling Stone’s 10 Best Country and Americana Songs list and is already available (HERE).
Recognized for his “state-of-the-art blend of traditional instrumentation and progressive grooves that points to country’s future” (Rolling Stone) and as “a leader among a growing number of artists bringing back fiddle, steel and twang while still finding ways to freshen the sound” (People), Heartache Medicationis the follow up to Pardi’s co-produced Platinum-selling breakthrough #1 album California Sunrise, which featured Multi-Platinum, chart-topping hits including “Dirt on My Boots,” “Head Over Boots,” “Heartache on the Dancefloor” and “Night Shift.”
Marking a career first, Pardi recently announced he will headline back-to-back nights at the historic Ryman Auditorium, where he will kick off his headlining HEARTACHE MEDICATION TOUR in Nashville on Oct. 1 and 2. The HEARTACHE MEDICATION TOUR featuring direct support Riley Green,* is currently on-sale for select pre-sale opportunities, with tickets available to purchase everywhere starting May 31.
