Jon Pardi is opening up for Luke Bryan on his What Makes You Country Tour with dates running from June to the end of this year. Luckily, the two get along extremely well, as seen through a couple of videos a fan captured at one of their recent shows together.
In the above clip, Pardi launches into a cover that immediately draws delight from the audience. And Bryan, after flipping his hat around, joins him on the chorus. The song, “Carrying Your Love With Me” was penned by Steve Bogard and Jeff Stevens and made famous by George Strait on his 1997 album, also titled Carrying Your Love With Me. It’s one of those tracks that makes you want to stop what you’re doing and singalong until it’s over, but be forewarned, the video cuts out before Pardi and Bryan finish the song.
Thankfully, there’s another great clip of the two recently sharing the stage including some playful bantering back and forth and Bryan poking fun at Pardi for trying to take on a Chris Stapleton song. The two then switched guitars and Bryan asked the crowd, “Are y’all cool with this? How are we doing on time?” This reveals that they were going a little off the cuff from their regular sets, but they were both having too good of a time to stop, queuing up a cover of “Neon Moon” by Brooks and Dunn where Bryan showed off his vocals and Pardi amped up the energy.
And to top it all off, there’s also a clip of Pardi and Bryan leading the crowd through Hank Williams Jr.’s “Family Tradition” where everyone knew the perfect time to chime in to “complete” the chorus.
