Jon Pardi marries Summer Duncan in Tennessee


Jon Pardi and Summer Duncan were married this past Saturday (Nov. 21) in Mufreesboro, Tennessee. The couple originally had planned the nuptials for Memorial Day weekend, but that was canceled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The ceremony was attended by a small group of close friends and family, who all took a COVID-19 test ahead of time. The couple does plan to eventually have a “wedding tour” to celebrate with family in Nashville, California and Texas.

“Originally we were getting married in Montana in May, which was going to be unreal,” Duncan told the publication. “We had an entire lodge rented out for three days for a wedding weekend extravaganza with events daily, a spa, chefs … But then COVID hit, and that all went away. With the sudden postponement — and Jon still having a full tour schedule — we were very limited with available dates.”

“We had a friend who was married at Saddle Woods last year, and when we walked into their wedding, Jon was like, ‘This is the most amazing wedding and venue ever,'” she continued. “So when we had to cancel our destination wedding, they were naturally the first venue we called when we knew we had to keep things closer to home. There’s never a right time in 2020 to get married, so after all the planning and replanning we were just happy we got to do it.”

Pardi’s dad and tour manager, Trey, served as groomsman, while Duncan’s two best friends from California and Nashville were her bridesmaids. Pardi’s longtime friend, John Murphy, married the couple.

“He knows us so well,” Duncan said of Murphy. “With it being such a special moment, we wanted someone who knows us inside and out and who we feel a connection with.”

The newlyweds chose an unreleased song by Pardi, “Look At You,” for their first dance. According to People, the country singer wrote the song for Duncan this past June in California and recorded it earlier this month.

Pardi and Duncan got engaged in October 2019, after dating for two-and-a-half years. They first met in May 2017, when one of Duncan’s hairstyle clients set them up.
