Jon Pardi received a plaque celebrating his first RIAA Gold record for “Up All Night” on Sunday before taking the stage at Riverfront Park for the final day of CMA Music Fest. Pardi’s “Up All Night,” written by Pardi, Bart Butler and Brett Beavers, was the first Top 10 earned by the rising country star.
“This is awesome, man!” said an ecstatic Pardi. “I still can’t believe we sold that many records, but this makes it feel a little more real!”
Pardi follows his eventful weekend with the release of his brand new music video for his latest single, “What I Can’t Put Down.” The video, produced by Tacklebox’s The Edde Brothers, features a unique interactive version* found at www.JonPardi.com where viewers can “choose their own adventure” as the video progresses, from what to drink at the bar to which country gal Pardi dances with. Find the interactive video HERE; find the regular version below:
“We shot the video at Whiskey Bent Saloon downtown (Nashville), which is cool because that’s where we started out playing years ago,” shares Pardi. “Then I got to wear my Manuel jackets again for the performance shots – one with my black jacket and an all-black set-up; the other with my white jacket and an all-white set-up. It was really fun to shoot and I think turned out pretty cool.”
*The player and the interactive elements will work in all browsers but does require the most up to date version of Adobe Flash 10.2 or higher in order to work properly. You will be automatically prompted to upgrade if not up to date.
The Mobile experience will prompt you to download the Interlude app – this is a free app that is enabled with two simple steps and then immediately plays the video. This is to allow the interactive elements to work on your mobile phone correctly when Flash may not be available.
