Jon Pardi celebrated not one, but two No. 1 songs at a party in Nashville on Wednesday (February 21st). Because he’s been so busy on the road and in the studio, Jon had to double up on the celebrations for his two chart-toppers, “Dirt on My Boots” and “Heartache on the Dance Floor,” along with writers Rhett Akins, Jesse Frasure and Ashley Gorley (“Dirt on My Boots”), in addition to Brice Long and Bart Butler.
The songs are two of three No. 1 hits from his current album, California Sunrise, which he says has changed his life and his live show.
“California Sunrise has definitely brought me to another level that I was never, ever at, and I’m glad to be here,” says Jon. “Definitely the singalongs are off of California Sunrise, and it’s amazing and we go into ‘Heartache on the Dance Floor’ and they’re singing it back. ‘Dirt on My Boots’ erupts the whole…it’s crazy to see like, and I know it takes time, but you hit ‘Head Over Boots’ or ‘Heartache,’ you feel it. The energy’s like, ‘Ahhhhhh!’ It’s a shot and it’s adrenaline. It’s a rush, and California Sunrise has led to that.”
The reigning ACM and CMA New Artist of the Year is currently making his way up the country charts with “She Ain’t In It,” the fourth release from California Sunrise.
Jon is on the road with Miranda Lambert on her Livin’ Like Hippies World Tour. The next stop on the tour will be in Knoxville March 1st.
