Midland and Jon Pardi’s ‘Longneck Way to Go’ Is Headed to Country Radio

by Blake Ells

Midland’s third studio album, The Last Resort: Greetings From, was released in May. Two tracks hit streamers ahead of the release, with the titular “The Last Resort” being first. “Longneck Way to Go,” a collaboration with Jon Pardi, also hit streamers ahead of the release. Now, it’s going to country radio. According to WYRK’s Chris Owen, you’ll start hearing it in rotation on July 18.

Midland recently shared video of their performance at the Spotify House at CMA Fest that was soundtracked by the tune. “I’ve got a loooong, longneck way to go! Thank y’all for coming out and closing out Spotify House with your gator boys for the final day of CMA Fest,” the Instagram post was captioned, celebrating the latest single.

Meanwhile, Jon Pardi just announced his fourth studio album, Mr. Saturday Night. He dropped the news on Instagram. “Mr. Saturday Night coming September 2. Literally just finished the record and couldn’t wait any longer to tell y’all. Make sure to hit that preorder up top!” he captioned the Instagram announcement.

Pardi is on a roll right now behind the power of his most recent hit “Last Night Lonely.” That’s the first single from the forthcoming 14-track Mr. Saturday Night. Pardi also recently released the second track, “Fill ‘Er Up.”

This week, Pardi visited the Grand Ole Opry to perform “Last Night Lonely.”
