NEW ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: Jon Pardi
By Bob Doerschuk
© 2014 CMA Close Up® News Service / Country Music Association®, Inc.
Saloon pianos clink, guitars crunch and fiddles, well, they fiddle throughout Write You a Song, Jon Pardi’s debut album on Capitol Records Nashville. And it fits together into a package that practically dares you not to get up and dance.
A lot of Pardi’s energy stems from days on the road and long nights on stages throughout his home state of California. He was already absorbing the spirit of real-world Country when he performed “Friends in Low Places” at age 7 for his father’s 30th birthday party. His first songs came at 12, his first band debuted two years later. The move to Nashville followed two restless years at Butte Junior College.
Apparently his experiences left Pardi unscarred. While there are no tears-in-my-beer blues here, that’s not to say he avoids introspective material. But even on the down-tempo “Love Hangs Around” (written by Pardi, Treat Summar and Odie Blackmon), you sense that it’s just a matter of time before the lyric’s two long-distance lovers enjoy a happy reunion.
Similarly, the rockin’ numbers have dimension. You’ll hear hardly a mention of trucks or cut-off jeans; instead, actual stories inhabit his down-home grooves. The title cut (Pardi, Bart Butler and Davy Ulbrich), as well as “Up All Night” (Pardi, Butler and Brett Beavers), showcase his fondness for melodies built on tight, repetitive motifs. The guy just sounds like he’s having a ball, and with his amiable drawl he’s inviting us all to join him.
IN HIS OWN WORDS
“There are so many, I don’t know where to start. Elvis was pretty awesome, though.”
ALBUM ON YOUR PLAYLIST
“Bakersfield, by Vince Gill and Paul Franklin.”
DREAM DUET PARTNER
“Willie Nelson. Willie just takes a song up to a whole new level.”
“People who eat really loud.”
TITLE OF YOUR AUTOBIOGRAPHY
“Life of the Pardi.”

THE GUITARISTS’ GUITARIST LANDS AT THE RYMAN
Brightly lit festivities came wrapped in a plethora of music as Nashville welcomed Brenda Lee - that’s “the” Brenda Lee - Amy Grant and Vince Gill, Martina McBride, Charlie Daniels, Hank Williams, Jr., the Mavericks, Steel Magnolia, and dozens of superstars celebrating great music all within days, and blocks, of each other. The CMA and UP TV taped holiday specials, Opryland was glowing, fans visited dozens of tour buses for charity and Luke Bryan rocked the Bridgestone, but the highlight was when “Mr. Christmas” landed his “57 Chevrolet” on the Ryman Auditorium stage again this year for his tenth Christmas Rocks Extravaganza, much to the delight of the sold out audiences.
Brian Setzer has earned that title for his unwavering and unconditional love of Christmas. With musicianship beyond belief and an equally talented orchestra in his bag of gifts, this timeless guitarist with the blonde pompadour magically took the historic stage in what seemed like a swirl of colorful and festive guitar glitter.
Like a gift to our ears, Brian took his holiday classics a step further into a visual extravaganza. With favorites such as “Jingle Bell Rock”, the Brian Setzer Orchestra was fully choreographed behind colorful individual forties‘ style music stands. Under the maestro’s direction, eight of the very best horns to his left and five superb saxophones to his right, the scene was set. The players were synchronized with head, hand and arm movements, standing and sitting and dancing throughout the show. We found ourselves wishing Phil Lassiter, our fellow Nashvillian who is now music director of Prince’s horn section, was there to see it. Excellence loves excellence. Like icing on the music, his two back up girls filled in perfect harmonies in costumes inspired by a classic Bing Crosby film. They completed the mood and their vocals are outstanding, along with the drummers and upright bass players who stole the show with acrobatics on their dueling basses while Brian was at home standing on the bass drum rejoicing with his signature licks about fish net stockings.
Brian told of how when he met Michael Jackson in a rush, Michael commented to him, “I like that cat song!“ Then holy cats, out came those cats as Brian rose the audience to their feet with his Stray Cats hit - the “Stray Cat Strut”, slithering into “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch” as the dancing Grinch crashed the three hour holiday party on stage. A hush fell over the Ryman as the entire audience whispered along with the famous lyrics - “I got cat class and I got cat style”.
With one hit after another, including “Jump, Jive an' Wail” and “Rock this Town, this showman does the nearly impossible as he seamlessly weaves rockabilly into big band, into Christmas, into swing and then into classical with his arrangement of the “Nutcracker“, not to mention a Johnny Cash gem as well. “Boogie Woogie Santa Claus” is also a meaningful favorite as it was the “A” side of Patti Page’s “Tennessee Waltz”.
From his 1959 “Christmas Custom”guitar to the Setzer Hot Rod Custom "Sparkle Red", Fred Gretsch is surely proud to have Brian in his Gretsch family. This virtuoso's tour also stopped in Allen, Texas and the family of Bill Haley of the Comets brought his Gibson guitar, which he played on “Rock Around the Clock”, for Brian to play at the show. Historic and magical moments seem to follow this guitarists’ guitarist like stray cats all around the towns he rocks as he jumps, jives and wails, making us all want to be in his presence, especially fellow admiring musicians.
After catching candy canes tossed by Santa and brushing snow from our hair in the pews of the Ryman, Mr. Christmas took off for his next stop to spread more joy and music. Even though money may be nice, and often necessary, we can’t help but get the impression that Brian would do it all in a rockabilly minute just for the joy.
