JON PARDI’S CALIFORNIA SUNRISE DEBUTS AT NO. 1 ON BILLBOARD COUNTRY ALBUMS CHART
Pardi to Perform Top 10 Hit “Head Over Boots” July 7 on NBC’s TODAY Show
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (June 27, 2016) – Jon Pardi’s California Sunrise debuts at No. 1 on Billboard’s Country Albums chart with 23,708 units sold and total consumption reaching 29,233. California Sunrise features Pardi’s current Top 10, Gold-selling hit “Head Over Boots” – which Pardi will take to NBC’s TODAY Show July 7 for its national television debut.
Pardi put his stamp on the 12-track album writing a majority of the songs including “Head Over Boots,” and reteaming with Bart Butler as co-producer. The Golden State country singer is frequently commended for his ability to connect with mainstream country radio while sticking to his traditional country roots, and with Pardi’s long-standing admiration of country music pioneers including Buck Owens, Merle Haggard and George Strait, their influence is evident throughout California Sunrise.
The Guardian finds Pardi, “claiming his lane as a man able to merge traditional country sounds with modern production,” and Rolling Stone asserts, “Pardi delivers high-energy country with just enough rock & roll, but rooted in the classic country sound he’s always loved.”
Fans across the country gravitate towards Pardi’s authenticity, working-man relatability, and ready-to-cut-loose spirit. This week, Pardi hits his home state with back-to-back sellouts in Los Angeles, San Diego and San Bernardino.
