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 may sing about heartache medication with this collection of songs, but his focus on arrangements filled with traditional musical elements (fiddle, steel guitar and twangy electric guitar) is joyfully medicinal for anyone sickened by so much mainstream country music that lacks many (if not all) of these essential country instruments.
These songs read as well as they sound, though. For example, the drinking song "Me and Jack" begins with a thumping, Johnny Cash-inspired country groove. »»»
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: Rising Appalachia buck the mainsteam, and that's fine with them
Rising Appalachia would not be accused of being in the musical mainstream. Not too many bands who combine folk and Appalachian sounds with new world music could possibly be.

Concert Review: Bingham plays with something to prove
Ryan Bingham mainly focused on songs from his sixth album "American Love Song," for this lively show. Backed by a supportive band that also included two female backup singers and a fiddler, Bingham's eclectic setlist touched upon country, singer/songwriter folk, rock and blues.
Bingham reached for lively country sounds early on, with... »»»
