The Long Road Festival has unveiled the first round of artists for its 2023 instalment, with Mr. Saturday Night himself, Jon Pardi, confirmed as a headliner for the much-loved UK event.
Attendees will be hoping Pardi performs his most recent hit, ‘Your Heart Or Mine’, along with fan-favourites from his impressive discography, including ‘Ain't Always The Cowboy’ and ‘Dirt On My Boots’.

Also due to perform is rising star, Megan Moroney, whose football-inspired earworm, ‘Tennessee Orange’, continues to soar up the charts. Breland is another exciting addition to The Long Road's 2023 line-up, with the singer-songwriter's unique sound earning him a quickly expanding fanbase, many of whom will no doubt be at the UK festival.
