Watch Pardi on CBS Mornings discuss his new album and perform his No. 1 hit, “Last Night Lonely”.
MR. SATURDAY NIGHT earns rave reviews from Billboard, The Tennessean, NPR, Paste and More
CMA and ACM Award-winning singer/songwriter/producer Jon Pardi continues to garner critical acclaim for his new album, Mr. Saturday Night. Featured by NPR, Paste, Billboard, The Tennessean and more, Pardi has “blazed his own trail over the past decade” (Billboard), as “the California-born country superstar’s latest album digs deeper into the roots of his inimitable and timeless musical stylings” (The Tennessean) and his “refusal to chase sets Mr. Saturday Night apart” (Taste of Country).
Today (9/7), Pardi joined CBS Mornings live in studio for an interview about his brand-new album, as well as a performance of the project’s lead single and recent #1 hit, “Last Night Lonely.” Check out Pardi’s performance HERE, and watch the interview HERE.
Just announced, Pardi scored two nominations for the upcoming 56th Annual CMA Awards, on the ballot for Musical Event of the Year and Music Video of the Year for his all-star collaboration with Midland, “Longneck Way To Go.” The track – praised by CMT for bringing “the smooth twang of California country back to the forefront of contemporary”– is featured on Mr. Saturday Night.
In celebration of the album’s release, Pardi has shared the official music video for the title track. The clip brings the song’s turn-of-phrase to life, juxtaposing the high-spirited life of the party with Pardi alone in the aftermath when the celebration stops. Watch the “Mr. Saturday Night” (Official Music Video) HERE.
With 14 songs steeped in losing, a little loving and what’s in-between, Pardi digs beneath the surface on Mr. Saturday Night, returning the genre to an era of buckle-polishing dancefloor encounters, yowling bar-room revelers, and the occasional strong, silent type ballad. Mr. Saturday Night reunites producers Bart Butler, Ryan Gore and Pardi – the same team behind the boards of his CMA and ACM award-nominated third studio album, Heartache Medication.
