Jon Pardi reminisced on some of the highlights from a recent performance, including a surprise appearance by country music legend Randy Travis.

Pardi posted a video on his social media pages on Tuesday afternoon (May 21), set to “Night Shift,” one of the hits appearing on the 12-track album California Sunrise in 2016. That project also included “Head Over Boots,” “Dirt On My Boots,” “Heartache On The Dance Floor” and more. Pardi posted the Chris Ashlee-filmed video with glimpses of his show on Friday (May 17) at the Choctaw Grand Theater in Durant, Oklahoma, including the “surprise visit from my friend [Randy Travis]!”

The two Grand Ole Opry members shared the Oklahoma stage together shortly after Travis released his first new studio recording in more than a decade with the help of AI (Artificial Intelligence). Travis said when “Where That Came From” made its debut: “Eleven years ago I never thought I would be able to have a hand in music production of any kind, but by God’s grace and the support of family, friends, fellow artists, and fans, I’m able to create the music I so dearly love. …Many thanks to my wonderful team and the best fans in the world for putting me back in the saddle again! I’ve enjoyed every moment of it.”

Pardi’s performance with the surprise appearance by Travis also took place a few days before he announced his fall headlining tour dates this fall. The “Mr. Saturday Night Tour” will include Priscilla BlockMeghan Patrick and Larry Fleet on select dates. See the tour stops below.
