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). »»»

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.
