BiographyEdit

Pardi grew up in Dixon, California, where he attended Dixon High School, graduating in 2003. Pardi started writing music at age 12, and by 14 the young singer formed his own small band. After high school he moved to Nashville to pursue his music career.[2]

Music careerEdit

2010–2015: Beginnings and Write You a SongEdit

In 2010, Pardi toured as an opening act for label mate Dierks Bentley.[1]

In March 2012, Pardi released his debut single, "Missin' You Crazy". It debuted at number 58 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs chart for the week of April 14, 2012,[3] and peaked at number 29. It received three stars from Taste of Country's Billy Dukes.[4] "Up All Night", his second single, was released in that same month in 2013, and became his first top 10 hit. His third single, "What I Can't Put Down", was also released that month in 2014. The album's fourth single, "When I've Been Drinkin'", was released to country radio on September 22, 2014. Those four songs all appear on Pardi's debut studio album, Write You a Song, which was released on January 14, 2014 via Capitol Nashville.[5] In May 2015, Pardi released a six-song extended play of songs recorded for but not included on Write You a Song, titled The B-Sides, 2011–2014.[6]

Pardi served as one of the opening acts on Alan Jackson's "Keepin' It Country Tour" and on Dierks Bentley's Riser Tour, both in 2014.[7][8] His first headlining tour was the "Up All Night Tour" in late 2014, with Joey Hyde as the opening act.[9] In August 2015, Pardi announced an 18-show headlining tour with Brothers Osborne as the opening act, named the "All Time High Tour," with dates from October through January 2016.[10]

2016–2018: California SunriseEdit

Pardi's second studio album, titled California Sunrise, was announced in March 2016, with a release date of June 17, 2016.[11] The album's lead single was "Head Over Boots".[12] In 2016, this song became Pardi's first number-one single on the Country Airplay charts; it also held the number-one position on the Billboard Year-End chart for Country Airplay.[13] After this came "Dirt on My Boots", written by Rhett Akins, Jesse Frasure, and Ashley Gorley, which also topped Country Airplay.[14][15] The album accounted for three more singles after these: "Heartache on the Dance Floor", "She Ain't in It", and "Night Shift".

In the summer 2018 Pardi toured alongside Luke Bryan on the What Makes You Country Tour.

2019: Heartache MedicationEdit

In 2019, Pardi joined Brooks & Dunn on a new version of their hit single "My Next Broken Heart" for their album Reboot. In an interview, Ronnie Dunn revealed that, while some of the guest artists on their album had an ideas of what they wanted their duets to sound like that differed from Brooks & Dunn's recordings, Pardi was insistent that they record the song exactly as it had been in 1991 as he was such a big fan of the original.[16]

On May 20, 2019, one day after appearing as a guest on the season finale of American Idol Pardi released "Heartache Medication", the lead single and title track to his third studio album, also titled Heartache Medication.[17]

Personal lifeEdit

On October 2, 2019, Pardi got engaged to his girlfriend, hairdresser Summer Duncan. He proposed to her while on stage during his concert at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. The couple married on November 21, 2020.[18]
