Jon Jackson, whose music we fawned over here, has a posted two videos over the last couple of days explaining his decision to run for a seat in Congress. Everyone is telling him he’s crazy (and maybe he is) but didn’t you ever have a crazy idea? An idea so crazy you never bothered attempting it and then regretted that decision for years.
I hope this goes viral, at the very least because it will expose more people to Jon’s music, but also because it’d be great if he actually won.
The smoking in the first video and Jon’s surprise that the election is this November in the second is classic. Write in Jon Jackson in November!
Here’s another song from Jon’s debut record Green Apples for sale now on CDBaby here.
