Luke Bryan Sent Jon Pardi a Six-Word Text Asking Him to Go on Tour

Have you ever wondered what kind of detailed protocol headliners go through when they pick their opening acts?  Well, in LUKE BRYAN’s case, not much.  He sent JON PARDI a six-word text asking him to open on his What Makes You Country tour.

Jon explains, “Luke just sent me a text.  It was just, ‘Man, you wanna go on tour?’  I was like, ‘Yeah.'”

It helps that they’re friends who go way back.  He adds, “We’re buddies.  I met Luke in 2011, when we were playing little 1,000-seat theaters.  And then he [released] ‘Country Girl (Shake It For Me)’ and I never saw him again.”
