Jon Pardi Announces New “Heartache Medication” Album, Single & Tour [Listen to New Single]

After scoring four Top 5 singles—including two No. 1 hits—with his 2016 No. 1 album, California Sunrise, Jon Pardi revealed that he will release his third studio album, Heartache Medication, on Sept. 27.

On June 3, Jon will ship the album’s title track to country radio as his lead single. Co-written by Jon, Barry Dean and Natalie Hemby, “Heartache Medication” finds the singer drowning his sorrows at a dive bar.

“The single ‘Heartache Medication’ has an ’80s George Strait ‘Fool Hearted Memory’ feel to it, and is something people can dance to,” says Jon. “That’s something I really wanted for this album. There really are no sad songs on this record—it covers a range of subjects, but is ultimately about moving on, and having a good time.”

Listen to “Heartache Medication” below.

In addition to the album and single, Jon will launch his Heartache Medication Tour with back-to-back shows at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium on Oct. 2 and 3, followed by additional stops in Milwaukee, Seattle, San Diego, Phoenix and more. Riley Green will serve as direct support.

Ticket pre-sale begins on May 28, with tickets to the general public going on sale on May 31. Every online ticket purchase will come with one Heartache Medication CD.

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde’s This Town Talks tour gets rolling next month in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Then for the next 7 months she’ll be crisscrossing this nation playing shows from Georgia to Montana and everywhere in between.

So, with all that travel, and different locations, packing for a tour can present some challenges. Ashley shares one basic piece of advice when it comes to preparing for the road, “At first, learning how to pack for on tour…I really didn’t do a good job. I guess maybe I thought I was leaving for summer camp. So, I would spend a couple of weeks where I overpacked, and a couple of weeks where I under packed. Just let me tell you…if you have to choose between the two – overpack. You can put those clothes away when you get back.”
