Now that their wedding is behind them, the country superstar says has his sights set on his next album and he’s happy to have Summer by his side for the process. 

When asked how married life is going, the California native said it’s going well, but also acknowledged that not too much has changed in the grand scheme of things. 

“It feels great! There’s not much changes other than getting used to wearing a ring, but Summer and I are having a great time and gearing up for 2021 and start writing and get me a new album this year. So, that’s the goal,” he explained in an interview with his record label. “Summer’ll be here every step of the way like she was the last record, and we’ll have fun. And that’s the most that’s changed, except we’re just married officially now.”

Pardi’s next album will serve as the follow-up to 2019’s Heartache Medication. His latest single from that project, “Tequila Little Time,” is at country radio now. 

“We wrote this on a song retreat in NorCal. We were doing some coast staring and all of a sudden we were like ‘Tequila Little Time With You!’ And then, we wrote it in about an hour,” Pardi recalled. “I feel like this song goes great on a boat, a lake or a pool. It’s about picking up a girl that’s down and maybe, maybe we want to do a shot of tequila? There’s no answer, but maybe. She starts feeling better, and it’s fun. It’s just a fun song.”
