This week–for the third week in a row–Jon Pardi found himself on the top of the country music charts for his hit “Dirt on My Boots.” With this accomplishment, the song received an RIAA Gold certification for 500,000 streams, which came as a surprise during his recent Good Morning America appearance.
“Dirt on My Boots” was co-written by Rhett Akins, Jess Frasure and Ashley Gorley. The song is all about working hard and enjoying some downtime after the work day has finished. It’s the perfect song for Pardi, and he takes on the character perfectly.
The song and official video are quickly becoming a favorite of country music fans who enjoy hearing Pardi’s traditional sound. And he’s great at interacting with them: Pardi is now encouraging fans to share pictures of their take on the “Dirt on My Boots” idea. Many of those photos have made it onto Pardi’s page for the song.
Take a look at the official music video for the song below.
Pardi is a California native, who’s taking the country music industry by storm. His debut album, “California Sunrise,” earned Pardi his first number one hit, “Head Over Boots.” He also was awarded the New Male Vocalist of the Year award at the ACM’s earlier this year.
This success has given Pardi a pretty busy schedule. Currently, he’s scheduled to play a free concert with Chris Janson, Kip Moore, and others, before the 2017 iHeartCountry Festival in May. He’s also on tour and will hit up several locations throughout the United States this summer. Pardi has also been a staple on Dierks Bentley’s “What the Hell World Tour” that also featured Cole Swindell. Later this year, he will be the opening act for a portion of Tim McGraw and Faith Hill’s Heart to Heart tour.
Plus, if he keeps pumping out hits like this one, we’re guaranteed to see a lot more of this talented artist in the coming years.
