Jon Pardi's "Your Heart or Mine" is currently a Top 10 radio single. I recently had a chance to sit down with him to talk about being a new dad, what's next for him in music and his thoughts on songwriting using artificial intelligence (A.I.).

Pardi has told me before that "you can't out-write Nashville," meaning there are so many great songwriters here that it would be silly for him to not explore songs written by others for all of his projects. With that in mind, I asked Pardi if he would ever consider writing a song using artificial intelligence.

He was one of two guests on this week's episode of Taste of Country Nights, On Demand.

"If I'm gonna co-write with A.I.," he says, "it better walk in with a damn coffee mug and wheel in there and start talking to me, and I'll start asking it damn questions."

While I was laughing at this, he continued going in on artificial intelligence. Pardi said, "I wanna see it in person, I want a damn robot to come in and start writing with Wall-E today. Wall-E's coming in, I'm gonna write with him."

It quickly seemed apparent after asking that question that Jon Pardi will not be an artist that uses artificial intelligence for songwriting. Seeing how Pardi is a multi-platinum and an award-winning singer-songwriter, I don't see him needing any help coming up with future new country songs.

26 Country Stars You Won't Believe Aren't Grand Ole Opry Members

Fifteen living CMA or ACM Entertainers of the Year are not members of the Grand Ole Opry, and a few of them barely recognize the vaunted stage. George Strait, Kenny Chesney and Willie Nelson are three legends who rarely play the Grand Ole Opry. Why?

That answer is often difficult to determine, but this list suggests reasons where appropriate. Membership into the Grand Ole Opry comes with an obligation to play the show frequently, but that's often set aside (Barbara Mandrell is an inactive member, for example). Only living artists are considered, and once a member dies, they are no longer a member.

As of 2023, there are more than 70 members of the Grand Ole Opry. Historically, nearly 250 men, women and groups were members — so, it's a select group that excludes several Country Music Hall of Famers.
