Watch Jon Pardi’s Incredible Acoustic Cover of a George Strait Classic

Jon Pardi’s breakthrough hit “Head Over Boots” recently claimed the top of the charts – and for good reason. The lighthearted love song transports listeners back into the late 80s and early 90s style of country, which features a higher emphasis on lyrics and a more peeled-back production style.

Now, Pardi has decided to put his own spin on a George Strait’s “Nobody In His Right Mind Would’ve Left Her” from all the way back in 1986. The cover was a part of the California native’s series of acoustic performances shared online earlier this summer.
