Lauren Alaina taps Jon Pardi for title track duet, “Getting Over Him”

No Comments Country Music News

Mercury NashvilleLauren Alaina recruits Jon Pardi to join her on “Getting Over Him,” the just-released title track off her new EP.

Fun-loving and full of swagger, the tune is all about how a fling can ease post-breakup pain. While Lauren’s part of the song mourns the loss of a relationship and an unfaithful partner, Jon chimes in to offer her a good time and distract her from her heartbreak.

“We were dive bar kissing / Heartbreak fixing / No strings Saturday night,” the two singers harmonize in the chorus. “Hot like a match / It burned out fast / Forever wasn’t in our eyes…”

Lauren and Jon effortlessly trade lines throughout the song, and for good reason: It’s not their first time collaborating. Lauren signed on as a guest artist for Jon’s “Don’t Blame it on Whiskey,” off his Heartache Medication album.

While she’s no stranger to duet projects, Lauren admits that she’s a little surprised her EP includes a song about moving on with a quick fling.

“I’ve done duets with other people for their projects, but I have never done any for my own,” she explains “…[Jon’s] energy is so amazing. I can’t believe I have a rebound song — but I do.”

Getting Over Him is due out on September 4.
