Country Singer Jon Pardi Paused His Concert To Propose To His Girlfriend

Posted at 2:00 PM, Oct 07, 2019

Country singer Jon Pardi gave a sold-out crowd at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee, quite a show on Oct. 2! He got the crowd on its feet as he performed songs off his latest album, “Heartache Medication,” which he just released on Sept. 27.

But Pardi had an even bigger plan for the show, which included shining the spotlight on his longtime girlfriend, Summer Duncan.

At the end of the second night of performances at the Ryman Auditorium, Pardi invited Duncan onto the stage, and as she stood there, she leaned in to tell him she was nervous. After a quick hug, Pardi told Duncan how he remembered that one of their first dates was at the Ryman Auditorium.

At that moment, he pulled out a ring from his pocket and got down on one knee to pop the question.

Fans cheered and took video as the cowboy crooner proposed, and his girlfriend quickly said “yes.” The country singer stood up, hugged his bride-to-be and they did a lovely slow dance in the middle of the stage to celebrate the occasion.

Duncan was definitely surprised by Pardi’s proposal.

She posted a photo on Instagram from the big moment, writing, “Not really sure what to say, so I’ll just let this speak for itself!”

Duncan, a hairstylist from Northern California, was a friend of Pardi’s mom, who encouraged the pair to meet, sensing a love match. Although she was hesitant at first, Duncan decided to fly out to Colorado to watch Pardi perform.

The rest, as they say, is history.

Pardi recently told “ET” how lucky he felt to have such an amazing woman in his life.

“Life with Summer is awesome,” he said. “When it comes to singing about losing her, it’s a big no for me. I definitely want to make her happy.”
