Jon Pardi is more than 112 days sober.

"I was pre-diabetic and I was just like, 'I’ve gotta stop.' I will say I’m retired. Doesn’t mean I can’t come out of retirement," the father-of-one quipped. "But for right now, it’s been great."

"I was really getting to the point where every picture, every video, I was so unhappy with myself, and it was like where I was going, I just needed to take a break," the 38-year-old explained of what prompted the lifestyle change.

The country crooner now treats himself by giving in to his sweet tooth instead.

"Let me tell you, I love me some ice cream," he said. "That’s why I’m like, 'Well, I’m not drinking, I better get this Twix candy bar ice cream.' Coffee ice cream, so good."

I just want people to be like, damn that's good...my goal for ‘24 is to just be bigger than I thought I would be, bigger and better. And have glowing skin."
