Newcomer Jon Pardi's debut single, "Missin' You Crazy," is all about being away from the one you love. As he tours the country performing it, Jon is hearing from military families turning the song into an anthem for their loved ones.
"I had a couple wives of military men, they always say their husband's stationed overseas and, 'This is my song. I miss him so much,'" Jon explains.
"Missin' You Crazy" isn't a sad song though. Jon says, "I think it’s the upbeat kind of happiness to the song that kind of keeps them -- it’s a positive kind of missing song."
Jon's new video for "Missin' You Crazy" had landed him a spot as CMT's Listen Up artist for the month of August. Fans can go to ListenUp.CMT.com for exclusive performances of Jon's songs "Happens All the Time," "Chasin' Them Better Days" and more. A new performance of Jon's "Write You a Song" will premiere on August 15 too.
Jon Pardi hails from Dixon, CA and will release his debut album in 2013.
