Jon Pardi and Lindsay Ell will be the guests in tonight’s (12) first edition of a new monthly live stream series, Live Nation Presents: Country Conversations. It begins at 7pm CT and will be available online at LiveNation.com, on Live Nation’s Facebook page, and at the Facebook pages of Watershed Music And Camping Festival, Rock The Ocean’s Tortuga Music Festival, and Faster Horses Music Festival.
The series will be hosted by Brian O’Connell, president of country touring and creator of Live Nation’s country music festivals. It will be a platform for a range of country music stars and will feature special performances.
“A unique platform to keep us connected”
Says O’Connell: “We wanted to start Country Conversations because our fans at our festivals and on tour are so important to us, they’re the reason why we do this. We also have a unique platform to help keep us connected and ease how much we are missing them this year.
“Being able to check in once a month with artists and fans is going to be fun, and I’m personally looking forward to trying to bring some unique performances with some of my friends, while continuing to innovate this series.’’
As reported, Pardi is also starring in his own, lighthearted, eight-episode digital variety series Pardi Time, which premiered last Tuesday (October 6) on CMT’s Facebook and YouTube channels. His song “Ain’t Always The Cowboy” is currently in the Top 20 of both Billboard’s Country Airplay and Hot Country Songs charts.
Pardi’s Heartache Medication Deluxe Edition was released on October 2, featuring three new songs alongside the original 2019 set, which is nominated as Album of the Year at the 2020 CMA Awards. It was also a nominee for the same title at the ACM Awards in September, losing out to Luke Combs’ What You See Is What You Get.
