Jon Pardi enjoyed a triumphant night at the 51st Country Music Association Awards, as he beat out some stiff competition to take home the New Artist of the Year award.

Pardi’s talent was strong enough to best such competition as Old Dominion, Lauren Alaina, Brett Young, and Luke Combs, all of whom have made considerable waves in the genre over 2017.

Pardi, a California-based country artist, has opened up for Alan Jackson and Dierks Bentley; his 2016 album California Sunrise deubted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart and scored two back-to-back No. 1 hits with “Head Over Boots” and “Dirt on My Boots.”

Pardi thanked all his hometown supporters, including those who supported him when he was “playing backyards and little hometown bars and fairs when I was still in high school.”

The 2017 CMA Awards were aired live from Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena Nov. 8.
