Jon Pardi’s ACM Album of The Year Nod Was The One Category He Wanted To Be In

Jon Pardi heads into next week's ACM Awards with a nomination for Album of the Year for his third studio album, Heartache Medication. The project as released last fall and features the chart-topping title track.

Jon tells us: [“Being nominated for an ACM Award is always awesome, especially when it’s for Album of the Year. From all the hard work we put in to making this record to seeing it as a nominee for Album of the Year is amazing. It’s such a great honor to just have a nomination – to still be in the game is what I’m saying, and it’s so fun. It’s my favorite category to be in. It’s the one I want to be in because that means all the songs help you get that nomination. I think that’s so great, and we work so hard on picking songs, so it’s awesome.”] SOUNDCUE (:29 OC: . . . so it's awesome.)

The 55th Academy of Country Music Awards, hosted by Keith Urban, will be broadcast on CBS on Wednesday, Sept. 16th at 8 p.m. ET.

In the meantime, Jon continues making his way up the country charts with his latest single, “Ain’t Always the Cowboy."
