Jon Pardi Scores Sixth No. 1 with "Your Heart or Mine"
Country music fans have another reason to celebrate this week as Jon Pardi's latest single "Your Heart Or Mine" reaches the top spot on the charts. The song, co-written by Justin Ebach, John Pierce, and Bart Butler, is the second No. 1 hit from Pardi's acclaimed album Mr. Saturday Night, which also earned him an ACM Album of the Year nomination.
Pardi, who is known for his authentic and traditional country sound, has been making waves in the genre since his debut in 2014. He has amassed over 8.4 billion in global consumption and has received praise from critics and fans alike for his "state-of-the-art blend of traditional instrumentation and progressive grooves that point to country's future" (Rolling Stone).
Pardi is also gearing up for his Mr. Saturday Night Tour, which kicks off on Sept. 28 in Knoxville, Tenn. The tour will feature special guests Tyler Rich and Lainey Wilson, and will visit cities across the U.S. until December.
But perhaps the most exciting news for Pardi this year was his invitation to join the Grand Ole Opry, the most prestigious institution in country music. Pardi was surprised by a video message from his hero Alan Jackson during his performance at Stagecoach Festival in April, asking him to become an Opry member. Pardi, who will be the only California native in the Opry ranks, will be officially inducted on Oct. 24.
Pardi's fans can catch him on the Opry stage and on tour this fall, as well as stream or download his album Mr. Saturday Night and his No. 1 single "Your Heart Or Mine" on all digital platforms.
