Spring…. This tour just looks awful.
Friends, beer, music and fun… that’s what it’s like to be on the road Jon Pardi.
CMT snapped some behind-the-scenes footage of life on the road with Pardi for him during his stop in Boston It’s not always the cowboy tour With Laine Wilson and Hailey Whitters.
Jon and his wife Summer have many firsts on this tour as it is one of Pardi’s biggest headlining tours and Summer is carrying their first child.
“From hackneyed pranks to pre-show puppies to sold-out gigs, hanging out with Jon Pardi is a hell of a time! ”
Jon notes that on tour he feels like he can relax. He can nap, drink afternoon beers, joke around with his band and Whitters and Wilson, and hang out with his wife…
Sounds damn good to me.
After exploring the city and eating in the morning, Pardi likes to see how the setup and stage set-up is going.
This episode in particular was the last show Hailey Whitters would be on as she left to get married.
“When I conceived the ‘Ain’t Always the Cowboy Tour,’ I wanted Hailey and I wanted Lainey, and I didn’t even ask anyone else.
They’re both more than just artists to me…they’re friends.”
That statement rings true after all the fun the trio had on tour. From the girls dressing up as babies when Summer announced her pregnancy to Pardi and Wilson dressing up as corn during Whitters’ final show, the pranks and laughter seem nonstop.
It’s also great to see clips of Pardi interacting with his crew and making every effort to ensure they are all calm, cool and collected throughout the tour. We learn that Pardi likes to build his crews’ morale by having shelters come by for “puppy breaks” during builds on show days.
Once the sound check is complete, it’s time to get ready to take the stage and put on one hell of a show.
After watching this video I want to hit the road with Pardi.
Looks like a damn good time.
