Jon Pardi heads west for "Ain’t Always the Cowboy" video

Jim WrightJon Pardi knows that cowboys aren't the only ones drawn to adventure in the video for his song, "Ain't Always the Cowboy."

The lyrics tell the story of a restless woman who thrives on independence, told through the eyes of a horse rancher with a passion for roping, leaving her lover in the dust. Jon serves as narrator, transplanted from his Nashville home to the scenic desert in Arizona, playing guitar amongst a field of cacti and mountains adorning the background. 

"I feel like the topic of the song hasn't been written about in this way, and I love songs that approach things differently and offer fresh perspectives," Jon says of the song in a statement.

"Ain't Always the Cowboy" is second single off Jon's 2019 album, Heartache Medication. It follows the chart-topping title track, along with other hits like "Head Over Boots," "Dirt on My Boots" and "Heartache on the Dance Floor."

Old Dominion teases breezy new “Everything to Lose,” due out FridayABC/Image Group LAOld Dominion are gearing up to share more new music, and from the snippet they posted to social media this week, the next song they’ve got coming is a flirty, tropical summertime anthem.

“This is one y’all haven’t ever heard yet,” the group revealed on social media, posting a 30-second clip of their new song along with a portion of the lyrics. Called “Everything to Lose,” the tune focuses on the early stages of a new relationship.

“Everything that you do is driving me crazy / Dancing and singing along and it’s catching my ear, catching my eye,” the song begins. “Think that it’s been long enough, girl, you know I ain’t playing / So let’s blow this popsicle stand, girl, and kiss it goodbye...”

“Everything to Lose” will be the first taste of previously unheard music from Old Dominion since May, when they dropped three older songs that they’d written for previous projects but that didn’t make the cut.

The band released their self-titled third album in October of last year. That project includes hits like “Make it Sweet” and “One Man Band.”
