Jon Pardi Gets Engaged During Ryman Auditorium Show
Jon Pardi made his Wednesday night (Oct. 2) concert at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium one he'll never forget. During his headlining set, the country singer proposed to his girlfriend, Summer Duncan -- and she said yes!
Pardi's friend, frequent tour boss and fellow country star Dierks Bentley helped share the good news on social media: The singer posted to Instagram a few photos of the big moment, and of Pardi's show, which he was watching from the side of the stage. "@jonpardipics crushing @theryman stage and crushing life ... So proud of you pal," Bentley writes.
According to Entertainment Tonight, the Ryman is one of the very first spots Pardi and Duncan went on a date. The singer and his bride-to-be, who have been together for about two years, earned a standing ovation -- and, of course, plenty of cheers from the crowd -- during their big moment.
"Life with Summer is awesome … When it comes to singing about losing her, it’s a big no for me. I definitely want to make her happy," Pardi previously told ET, joking, "I’ve had my fair share of crazy girlfriends, so it’s nice to be in a totally sustainable relationship
"I mean, I still do dumb [things], I’m a guy, but for the most part, I’ve got to pat myself on the back. I’ve been a good boyfriend, and it’s nice to really work to make somebody feel loved and feel happy," Pardi added. "She’s worth it."
Pardi's Wednesday night Ryman concert was the second of two back-to-back shows at the venue, kicking off his Heartache Medication Tour. The artist released his third studio album, Heartache Medication, on Friday (Sept. 27).
