Who is Jon Pappalardo?

IMG_6077I’m a Communications Associate born and raised on the South Shore of Massachusetts. My love for quality country music began when I first heard Lorrie Morgan’s “What Part of No” when I was four. My appreciation has only deepened in years since as I continue to marvel at the breadth of talent this genre has unleashed upon the world.

I started this blog in 2009 (The Yes Dear EP Review was my 200th post) as a way to grow as a writer. I had no idea it would lead me down the path to an invitation to write for My Kind of Country, a national country music blog that gets 800-1000 hits per day. I’ve been fortunate to have the opportunity to review and write about the music for which I’m most passionate going on 8+ years now.

Country Music is in my blood, but it’s not my whole life. I’m also passionate about animals. I love to travel. I’m obsessive about high-quality food. I’m addicted to California’s Napa Valley wine region. I love to read and tear apart the Sunday New York Times for articles giving insight into arts, movies, and general lifestyle trends. I’m a budding photographer. But most of all I’m a 29-year-old with a thrust for life and a burning desire to spend time with my Golden Retriever Calistoga.

Take a look at my Resume. Peruse my writing portfolio. Read my posts. Leave a comment.

    Wow, I’m flattered that you listed my song “Strangers” as your #1 favorite Martina cut! Both Martina and her producer, Paul Worley, lobbied hard for that to be a single, but the then head of RCA, Tom Schuyler, said no. That’s why she and Paul included it on her Greatest Hits album, though it was never a single. What a voice! I enjoy your writing and your reviews. Send me your email address and I’ll send you an MP3 of a killer demo of this song — the original — sung by my girlfriend at the time (1992) Tami Jones, who went on to be on CBS for a minute.
