Jon Pardi has released a music video for the song, “Ain’t Always the Cowboy.”
The visual recounts the life of a strong, independent cowgirl who works hard at training her horse before deciding to leave her boyfriend to forge her own path.
“It ain’t always the cowboy / That ain’t got a lot of hang around / Ain’t got no settle down in their boots / Gone’s just what they do,” Pardi croons on the chorus. The stunning clip also features Pardi performing his song in the beautiful Phoenix desert, alongside lush greenery, cacti and a golden sunset.
“I feel like the topic of the song hasn’t been written about in this way, and I love songs that approach things differently and offer fresh perspectives,” Pardi said of the song in a statement.
Last year, Pardi released his third studio album, Heartache Medication, via Capitol Records Nashville. It features “Ain’t Always the Cowboy” and the title track “Heartache Medication,” which hit number one on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart.
