Song of the Day: Jill Phillips


Love songs and Springsteen are the hot topics of the week so this pick for Song of the Day ought to be just about perfect. “Everyday” is off of Jill’s first album, Jill Phillips, and it’s not only a great love song but there’s a reference to one of The Boss’s best in the first verse. You can also check out her newest album over at


Pete Peterson is the author of the Revolutionary War adventure The Fiddler’s Gun and its sequel Fiddler’s Green. Among the many strange things he’s been in life are the following: U.S Marine air traffic controller, television editor, art teacher and boatwright at the Florida Sheriffs Boys Ranch, and progenitor of the mysterious Budge-Nuzzard. He lives in Nashville with his wife, Jennifer, where he's the Executive Director of the Rabbit Room and Managing Editor of Rabbit Room Press.

    Any of Jill’s songs could be used as song of the day everyday for me.
    This one always has been a favorite for my wife and I.

    This cd is fantastic, and I’ve always thought this song should be in a movie. It just has that happy ending feel…like the wrap up to a romantic comedy…as the two main characters find their way to each other on the dance floor at the local fair surrounded by strings of lights, a ferris wheel, and fireworks. Of course, I would only have a chance of seeing this happen if I accidentally settled too long on the Lifetime network while flipping channels on a commercial break during TNT’s TWICE THE VAN DAMAGE Jean Claude Van Damme marathon.

    Ah! I just remebered this song a few hours after I posted on the love songs topic. Definitely one of my favorites!

    Thank you guys! This is the first song Andy and I ever wrote together when we were in college so it will always be special to me. Thanks to the Rabbit Room and Pete for supporting our music.

    The thing I love most about this track is how vulnerable the vocal is. It’s not a “perfect” performance – and I mean that in the best possible way. Her voice trembles in places and it sounds real, intimate, human, and I believe every word she sings.

    I whole heartily agree with this song selection…

    This was the first song my husband and I danced to at our wedding..

    That CD had a huge impact on me, it was one of the first cd’s I bought after the Lord sought me out…

    Thank you Jill for wonderful and committed music..
