Talented and handsome Jon Pardi is not one to shy away from a dance floor. In previous music videos like “Head Over Boots” and “What I Can’t Put Down,” we got a little tidbit of what the long-legged country star can do on in a dancehall. And we’ve seen firsthand that his two-step is as smooth as silk. Apparently, so is his hula.
On a trip to Hawaii with performing rights organization BMI, Jon hopped up onstage with several of his buddies to participate in a demonstration of the island’s native dance. While no one seems apprehensive about shaking their imaginary grass skirts, Jon goes all out with his wahine partner, dropping it low and even fanning her fiery wiggle when he can no longer keep up.
He then busts out some of his own moves that seem a little less hula and a little more hardwood, which even gets him a round of applause from his teacher.
Thank goodness SiriusXM The Highway personality Storme Warren caught video of this … awesomeness!
Yes, we called it awesome, but come on. We like our cowboys boot-scooting as much as we like them hip-shaking, right? So, let’s take a look at Jon in a more natural element and revel as he virtually glides across the dance floor.
This zany charm and his incredibly rich traditional country sound is part of what is winning Jon a legion of new fans around the world. It has also earned him a nomination for New Country Artist of the Year in the Rare Country Awards and it’s up to you to decide the winner. Vote now through Dec. 13 at RareCountryAwards.com. Winners will be revealed during a livestreamed concert event on Dec. 14 in Nashville.
