Jon Pardi Named One of MusicRow's 2017 Next Big Thing Artists

MusicRow has revealed their picks for its 2017 Next Big Thing list.

This year's Next Big Thing artists range from established hit makers prepping their next moves, to newcomers ready to claim their turns in the spotlight.

"It's a great honor to shine the spotlight on these deserving and talented artists," says MusicRow Owner/Publisher Sherod Robertson. "They are poised to make large strides in 2017 earning them our Next Big Thing title. These artists have all proven they have talent and dedication and we see their stars shining even brighter in the coming year."


Capitol Records Nashville artist Jon Pardi practically two-stepped into the hearts of country listeners this year, earning two chart-toppers, with both his single "Head Over Boots," and his album California Sunrise. "Head Over Boots" has now been certified Platinum by the RIAA. Pardi offers a double shot of his rock-infused classic country sound with his new single, "Dirt On My Boots." Pardi is currently on the road as an opener for Kip Moore's Me and My Kind Tour, and will join Dierks Bentley's What The Hell World Tour in 2017.
