In the middle of a whirlwind album release weekend, Brothers Osborne joined Jon Pardi on their “All Time High Tour” in Long Island, NY. The dance floor of the Paramount Theatre was packed and all of the seats were filled before Brothers Osborne took the stage. The siblings showcased their ability to hype up the crowd by kicking off a 40-minute high energy set with “Greener Pastures.” They treated the audience to several songs off their brand new album Pawn Shop including “It Ain’t My Fault” and “Rum.” Although Lee Ann Womack did not join TJ for the duet of “Loving Me Back,” the brothers perfectly blended their voices together to create a chillingly beautiful moment.
Another highlight of the set was their performance of the Grammy nominated song “Stay a Little Longer.” The entire crowd jumped and sang along to every word. The band ended with an upbeat cover of “The Shape I’m In.” Their entire set was captivating and it’s safe to say that the duo gained plenty of new New York fans.
To close out the evening, Jon Pardi took the stage rocking a giant belt buckle and cowboy hat. He opened with his electric 2012 single “Missin You Crazy.” Standing front and center and singing his signature twang filled hits it was obvious that the audience were long time fans, singing along to all of his songs. Fans were lucky enough to hear some new music that Pardi has been working on for his sophomore album. His current single, “Head Over Boots” is a traditional love ballad and Pardi crooned to the fans who lit up The Paramount with lighters and cell phone flashlights. He closed the set with “Up All Night” from his first album Write You A Song.
New York typically isn’t viewed as a hotbed of country music, but the crowd certainly went wild for Brothers Osbourne and Jon Pardi. The positive reaction demonstrates that there’s more of a market for the genre in the Big Apple than one might expect.
