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.
