Jon Pardi's New Single Is His 'Carrie Underwood' Song


Jon Pardi's brand new single is called “Ain’t Always the Cowboy,” and he tells us one of the things he loves about it is the subject matter. [“I love this song. It’s not an easy song to sing it, like it’s a belt, I always say this is my Carrie Underwood song, ‘cause you have to sing it, and great melody, and the topic hasn’t been talked about. It hasn’t been wrote like that. It’s such a macho kind of thing being the cowboy, but then you got dumped. It was just a really cool idea, and I love great songs that you haven’t heard before.”] SOUNDCUE (:25 OC: . . . haven't heard before.)

"Ain't Always The Cowboy" is the follow-up to Jon’s recent No. 1 song, “Heartache Medication.”

His album of the same name is nominated for ACM Album of the Year at this year’s ACM Awards. The show, hosted by Keith Urban, will broadcast live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on April 5th at 8 p.m. ET/delayed PT on CBS.
