Jon Pardi is celebrating the holidays with the release of his first-ever Christmas album. Merry Christmas From Jon Pardi was released on October 27th, but the season of merry has just begun.
According to the press release, Jon Pardi, Bart Butler and Ryan Gore produced the 12-track holiday album. It is available now for pre-add/pre-save and it releases the same week Pardi becomes the first California native inducted into the Grand Ole Opry.

While he has holiday shows on the horizon, Pardi is currently on tour. He’s promoting his album Mr. Saturday Night, which earned him his third ACM Album of the Year nomination (three times running). The tour began in Knoxville, Tennesee. Along the way, he’s played amazing shows in Pikeville, Kentucky, Savannah, Georgia and Hollywood, Florida.

Jon Pardi Reschedules Shows Due to Illness
Unfortunately, there’s bad news in the midst of all the good. On October 25th, Pardi had to reschedule three shows due to strep throat. On November 2nd, he had to reschedule again. This time due to an illness plaguing himself, his wife and his 8-month-old.
“Just gonna cut right to the chase: I have to reschedule this weekend,” Pardi said in a video shared on social media. “Also, I now have COVID. Presley has COVID. Summer’s probably got COVID. It’s been going around my family and band and crew.”
The Nampa show, the Missoula show and the Billings show are now postponed.
“I was really looking forward to this weekend, but I gotta get healthy and rest,” the country artist said. “There’s nothing fun about this,” he added. “I hate this. And I’m sorry, once again. I hope everybody’s safe out there.”
We wish Pardi and his family a speedy recovery.
