Hear Jon Pardi's New Single, 'Night Shift'

With the high-energy performance chops of a hat act and the party-hearty disposition of his Solo cup-hoisting peers, Jon Pardi pleases a wide range of country fans by simply being himself. Fans of both old and new radio hits found something palpable over two years ago with Pardi's breakout release California Sunrise. On the heels of three danceable singles ("Head Over Boots," "Dirt on My Boots" and "Heartache on the Dance Floor" ) and the markedly old-school "She Ain't It" comes another throwback crowd-pleaser in the working man's love ballad "Night Shift."

The Phillip LaRue, Tofer Brown and Billy Montana co-write speaks for every third shift worker at the local cotton mill, logging awful work hours while looking forward to the rare night with their spouse or partner. Like Luke Combs' hits or even Jason Aldean's newer material, Pardi's single introduces true love and other real emotions to the sometimes less-than-sensitive airwaves. Of course, speaking to and for the common folks targeted by singles is a big part of the truthfulness expected of country singers. With "Night Shift," Pardi reminds fans why that lyrical approach will never go out of style.

'Night Shift' Lyrics

It's been a wreck me week
Sixty plus from dawn to dusk
In the red dirt heat
Busting it up for a couple of bucks
But it ain't no thing
Just another day till I'm on my way
To them cool, cool sheets and you and me

Working on the night shift, baby
Dying for your touch like crazy
Racking up the overtime hours
Loving how we're working on the night shift, baby

Gonna rock it right
No need to talk, I know what you want
And what you like
Cause I do too, yeah
I love how you leave on the lights
Not a thing between you and me
And it feels so nice when you and I are

Working on the night shift, baby
Dying for your touch like crazy
Racking up the overtime hours
Loving how we're working on the night shift, baby

Yeah, yeah
It's been a wreck me week
Oh, but who needs sleep?

Working on the night shift, baby
Dying for your touch like crazy
Racking up the overtime hours
Loving how we're working on the night shift, baby
Loving how we're working on the night shift
Loving how we're working on the night shift
Working on the night shift, baby
