Have you played at the Grizzly Rose before?
YES! It’s been a couple of years, but we are excited to be back!
We’ve heard that you started writing music before you were even a teenager. What inspired you to want to be a musician at such a young age?
My grandmother was a big inspiration for me. I grew up listening to 90’s country so all those guys inspired me as well.
You’re a California boy who moved to Nashville to pursue a dream of becoming a country musician. Which do you prefer California or Tennessee?
I prefer AMERICA!
Your California roots are more blue collar than the stereotypical Orange County, surfer boy type. Tell us a bit about why this is important to you and how it shaped you as an artist.
Man, that’s just how I grew up. I’ve always worked hard and I carried that work ethic into music with me. It’s what helped drive me to Nashville.
If you could team up with one other country artist right now to record a duet album and go on tour, who would it be and why?
Gotta go with Dierks. I am out on tour with him right now. The album would be called “Jon and Dierks sing Frank Sinatra”
A lot of people talk about your voice and that it has a very old-school country sound to it. Is this something you deliberately worked on to give a certain tone to your music or is just something you were born with?
I’ve been twangy since I was 7!
How many instruments can you play?
Guitar and drums.
What is Jon Pardi doing when he’s not playing music or touring the country?
Working on my ranch and renting bulldozers!!
What’s your favorite song that you’ve written so far and why?
“Head Over Boots” because it was my first #1! Everyone loved this song and I really think it had a big impact on couples.
