Jon Pardi, ‘Head Over Boots’ [Listen]
Jon Pardi’s “Head Over Boots” is beautiful in its simplicity. The first single from the Californian’s upcoming second studio album immediately separates itself from his previous, mostly party-centric cuts.
This song finds Pardi professing his love with words the common man will appreciate. Still, there is his unique delivery and an undeniably country arrangement. He stays true to his heroes when he sings:
“Cause you’re the one I want / You’re the one I need / If I was a king, you would be my queen / You’re the rock in my roll, you’re good for my soul / It’s true / I’m head over boots for you.”
The swinging feel of “Head Over Boots” is the song’s signature. Lyrically the singer and co-writer Luke Laird don’t reinvent the love song. Familiarity will breed radio success, they hope.
“The way you sparkle like a diamond ring / Maybe one day we can make it a thing / Test time and grow old together / Rockin’ our chairs and talkin’ about the weather / So bring it on for an angel kiss / Put that feel good on my lips,” Pardi sings during the second verse.
Pardi has flown under the radar despite a very solid debut album and a growing fanbase. A tour with Alan Jackson sharpened his profile just in time for his next career chapter.
Why Fans Will Love It: Fans will love the simplicity of this swinging country song.
Key Lyrics: "You’re the rock in my roll, you’re good for my soul / It’s true / I’m head over boots for you."
