KRTY and Live Nation are proud to partner to present the 95.3 KRTY 25th Anniversary Kick Off Concert with Jon Pardi, Cam and William Michael Morgan.
Originally from Dixon in Northern California, Jon Pardi moved to Nashville after high school to pursue a career in music, taking elements from West Coast honky-tonks and combining them with traditional country.
After touring as an opening act for Dierks Bentley in 2010, Pardi released his debut album Write You a Song (2014) on Capitol Nashville, featuring the critically acclaimed singles “Missin’ You Crazy”, “Up All Night”, and “What I Can’t Put Down”. Soon after, Pardi embarked on his own headlining tour – the “Up All Night Tour” – that year.
In 2016, he released his second studio album California Sunrise – an album full of classic Nashville melodies, blue-collar lyrical themes and authentic country instrumentation – which peaked at #1 in the US country charts. Pardi has spent the majority of the last few years touring on the road with some of country’s biggest artists, including Alan Jackson and Brothers Osborne.
Starting off as a writer for other artists such as Miley Cyrus and more, Lafayette-native Cam broke through under her own moniker in 2014 after being signed to Sony’s Arista Nashville and touring with Dan + Shay the same year. She later released Welcome to Cam Country, which peaked as #31 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart and #5 on the Top Heatseekers survey. Her debut full-length album Untamed (2015) was the highest-selling debut country studio album of the year and premiered at #2 on the Top Country Albums chart. The release also brought her a Grammy nomination for the strings and acoustic-filled track, “Burning House”, which became a top-five hit on the Billboard country songs and country airplay charts.
Rising country star William Michael Morgan released his debut album Vinyl (2016) on Warner Bros. Nashville with the hit single, “I Met a Girl”, which reached #2 on the Country Airplay chart and #8 on the Hot Country Songs chart.
