2019: «Heartache Medication»
In 2019, Pardi joined Brooks & Dunn on a new version of their hit single "My Next Broken Heart" for their album Reboot. In an interview, Ronnie Dunn revealed that, while some of the guest artists on their album had an ideas of what they wanted their duets to sound like that differed from Brooks & Dunn's recordings, Pardi was insistent that they record the song exactly as it had been in 1991 as he was such a big fan of the original.
On May 20, 2019, one day after appearing as a guest on the season finale of American Idol Pardi released "Heartache Medication", the lead single and title track to his upcoming third studio album, also titled Heartache Medication.
