After scoring four Top 5 singles—including three No. 1 hits—with his 2016 No. 1 album, California Sunrise, Jon Pardi has topped the charts with “Heartache Medication,” the title track from his 2019 album. The tune is No. 1 on both the Billboard Country Airplay chart and Mediabase chart this week.
Co-written by Jon, Barry Dean and Natalie Hemby, “Heartache Medication” finds the singer drowning his sorrows at a dive bar.
“The single ‘Heartache Medication’ has an ’80s George Strait ‘Fool Hearted Memory’ feel to it, and is something people can dance to,” says Jon. “That’s something I really wanted for this album. There really are no sad songs on this record—it covers a range of subjects, but is ultimately about moving on, and having a good time.”
Jon is currently featured on Thomas Rhett’s new single, “Beer Can’t Fix,” which impacted country radio on Jan. 6.
