Discussing his success in 2023 on Amazon Music’s Country Heat Weekly podcast, Pardi admitted to his abuse of alcohol and how it got out of hand before he started to notice. While realizing he needed to make a drastic change, the singer announced he was sober for 112 days to hosts Amber Anderson and Kelly Sutton. “I’ve been 112 days sober. I’ve lost a bunch of weight. I was pre-diabetic, and I was just like, ‘I gotta stop.'”

Besides feeling the effects of the alcohol, Pardi explained how he could see it. “I was really getting to the point where every picture, every video I was so unhappy with myself. And where I was going, I needed to just take a break.”

With over 100 days of sobriety, Pardi admitted that one of the secrets to losing weight is to simply cut out alcohol. “I just did a photo shoot and I was like … ‘Damn, I look good,’ Take that Tito’s! But for anybody that’s thinking about it, if they want to lose weight and you do drink, let me tell you, it does help tremendously if you stop.”
