Jon Pardi Releases “Back on the Backroads” Music Video

jon pardi

Capitol recording artist Jon Pardi recently released his latest music video “Back on the Backroads” – in support of his brand new EP, The B-Sides, 2011-2014Available HERE.

While Pardi works on his sophomore studio album, he responded to fan demand for more music with the release of the six-song digital EP. The B-Sides features six previously unreleased tracks recorded for consideration for Pardi’s debut album, Write You A Song.  Although they did not make the final track listing for Write You A Song, Pardi continues to play many of these songs in his live show. Fans have learned the lyrics over time and sing along, yet have not been able to personally own the tracks until now.

As he did with ten of the titles on his Best of 2014-named Write You A Song, Pardi co-produced and co-wrote all of the songs on The B-Sides including “Back on the Backroads.” Pardi captures depth with his insightful “Borrowed Time,” futile longing in “Rainy Night Song” and self-inflicting torment in “Fightin’ the Fool.”

Following the recently wrapped Keepin’ It Country 25th Anniversary tour with Alan Jackson, Pardi has a full summer tour schedule lined up including stops from Cullman, Ala. to New York, N.Y. and Dover, Del. to Twin Lakes, Wis. For a full list of tour dates, news, images and more, visit
