Jon Pardi on His Nashville Firsts

The Move from California Ten Years Ago

It was exactly 10 years ago today that Jon Pardi made the move to Nashville. So when I had a chance to ask him what it was like when he was first getting settled in Music City on Feb. 23, 2008, Pardi told me things about his backstory I never knew.

“I moved to Nashville from Dixon, California when I was 22,” Pardi told me. “My parents had divorced, so I waited until my mom was remarried, and I knew she was safe. That’s when I really felt good about moving to Nashville to do this.”
