Do you ever wonder how A-list artists choose the performers who serve as openers on their tours?
Well, according to Jon Pardi, superstar Luke Bryan does it with a simple text message. "Luke just sent me a text. It was just, 'Man, you wanna go on tour?' I was like, 'Yeah,'" Pardi revealed to CMT on Friday. "Me and Luke, we go way back. We're buddies. I met Luke in 2011, when we were playing little 1,000-, 1,500-seat theaters."
Bryan's What Makes You Country Tour, which will definitely play much bigger venues than that, kicks off on February 16 in Springfield, Missouri.
