New Country: Jon Pardi — ‘Mr. Saturday Night’

Label: Capitol Records Nashville

Honky tonk nights might are alive and well, thanks to Jon Pardi. He has a knack for blending the current requirement of having a musical hook with a classic sound.

Mr. Saturday Night is the fourth studio album from Jon Pardi and features the #1 hit, “Last Night Lonely.” Jon produced the album with Bart Butler and Ryan Gore, the same team behind his award-winning 2019 release, Heartache Medication, which was nominated by CMA and ACM for Album of the Year.

More importantly, he’s an authentic country artist whose country songs are actually allowed on the radio. Even when the music is a little contemporary, the heart of the song is still country. It’s all about the fiddle, the pedal steel, and the voice of reason. The album allows Mr. Pardi room to explore country nostalgia while creating a little future nostalgia of all our own.
