Pardi Animals, this calls for a road trip.

Jon Pardi will embark on a headlining tour this summer. His newly announced Ain't Always The Cowboy Tour makes a stop in Gilford, New Hampshire at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion, September 23. Tickets go on-sale Friday, March 4. Lainey Wilson and Hailey Whitters will open the show.
