Country Music People magazine names Jesse Jones’ album “Honky Tonker Of The Month”! Editor Duncan Warwick writes about Jon’s songs: “Three songs are credited to long- time former CMP writer Jon Philibert including my favourite track on the disc, And I Thought Canada Was Cold. It’s as stone country as they come and was apparently written in the 1980s and first cut by Brit act Memphis Roots on Ritz. I had not previously heard it but am sure glad it was included here. Jon’s other songs are Honky Tonk, Two-Steppin’, Beer Drinkin’ Saturday Night, which has been recorded by several indie artists over the years and really ought to have been a hit in the early 90s, and new song Some Bridges Just Won’t Burn which further proves that if you ‘get it’ you can be from anywhere and write a decent country song. Jon gets it, and it is a very decent country song indeed.”  To read the full review click here.
