The BLUES CRITIC staff picks...

SOUTHERN SOUL ARTIST OF THE YEAR

SIR CHARLES JONES & JETER JONES AKA "THE JONES BOYZ"

The Jones Boys- Sir Charles Jones & Jeter Jones- have again been everywhere in 2020. Not only did they each release a new album (Sir Charles Jones "Intimacy", Jeter Jones "Mufassa") but they also released a collaborative album under the moniker "The Jones Boyz", which is also the name of their label. The album was called "2 Kings", which is not an exaggeration. They each also guested on a host of tracks. So much so it's hard to keep track!
