Bobby Bones Talks ‘Cameo’ with Jon Pardi
Friday morning on The Bobby Bones Show, Bobby talked with Jon Pardi. Bobby Bones unearthed a nugget of information from Pardi that we found interesting, how Pardi was paying to buy stuff for his farm!
No question, Country Music artists are finding it difficult to reach fans with COVID-19. We are starting to see concerts trickle back into Sioux Falls, but touring in full force isn't happening yet.

Jon Pardi is set to play the Grand Ole Opry show 'Opry' this weekend. He stopped by The Bobby Bones Show to talk bout the upcoming appearance, his first Opry performance, and what he's been up to on social media and his farm.
Pardi's first appearance at the Opry was back in 2013. He shared with Bobby Bones that he and his mom took a stretch hummer limo to the event. They were really stoked about the opportunity for Pardi and wanted to arrive in style. Since this time, Pardi's career has skyrocketed and now he's busy passing his time making money through the app Cameo. Pardi charges $125 to send fans a video of himself singing 'Happy Birthday,' or to help his fans with their engagements. He uses the money he makes off Cameo to do stuff on his farm. He shared that he and his wife Summer have cows coming this weekend for the farm.
Before Pardi heads back to tour post-pandemic, he admitted that he'll spend a few days rehearsing songs by himself on his guitar. Even though he does this to not forget any lyrics, sometimes Pardi admits he definitely still forgets the lyrics to his own songs.
