It’s been three years since Jon Pardi has released a studio album and that’s all about to change as he readies to debut his next project Mr. Saturday Night on September 2. With 14 songs on the track list, there’s a lot of buzz about what’s to come — especially with track 14 being titled, “Reverse Cowgirl.”
Pardi addressed the elephant on the track list while sitting down with Audacy’s Katie Neal for the Superstar Power Hour. Promising it’s not exactly what people think, but then again — it’s all about interpretation.
“It’s got a funny, humor twist to it, but it’s also really pretty and really romantic in a way,” he said. “When I first heard it [in 2020] I was like, ‘Man, there ain’t no way! There ain’t NO way! [Then], the whole world went through some s***, so I was like, ‘You know what? You want 'Reverse Cowgirl?' You go and record ‘Reverse Cowgirl!’
He continued “The first part of ‘Reverse Cowgirl,’ it’s a sad song! The guy wants his cowgirl to come back. Now, it may have a little twist in there, and it’s for your mind to think about. It’s the best dirty, cleanest thing you can have.”
The title alone has created a lot of anticipation surrounding the track and according to Pardi, his fans aren’t the only ones anxious to hear it… his fellow Country artists are too!
"Jake Owen makes sure he called every three months until he knew I recorded ‘Reverse Cowgirl.’ He’s like, ‘Well, if you don’t want it, you know I want that song!’” Pardi laughed. “Chase Rice, he texts me like, ‘Dude, did you record 'Reverse Cowgirl' yet? I cannot wait!’ I’ve never had a demo for so long and been so anticipated.”
While the title is surely the most eye-catching, fans are excited to hear more than just “Reverse Cowgirl.” With previously released tracks “Last Night Lonely,” the title track and “Longneck Way To Go” feat. Midland already performing well, the project is sure to continue to gain momentum. Pardi shares the track, “Your Heart or Mine,” is already set to be the next single.
“The band already knows that’s going to be the next one to come out,” he shared. “That’s definitely going to be the next single.”
