Who was/is Wanda Jackson ? - CDs, Vinyl LPs, DVD and more


Wanda Jackson has enduring popularity as the 'Queen of Rockabilly,' and to this present day continues to sing her fiery rockers to crowds across the globe, even though her rockin' sides only comprised the years 1956 through 1961 in a career that has spanned five decades.

What most don't realize is that it was country music that inspired Wanda to begin singing, and it was country music that paid the bills after rockabilly went out of vogue. For most of her life, Wanda Jackson has been a honky-tonk country music singer.

Wanda Jean Jackson was born on October 20, 1937, in the tiny town of Maud, Oklahoma, some fifty-seven miles southeast of Oklahoma City. Her father, Tom Jackson, was a professional musician who played guitar, fiddle, and sang, constantly playing music around the household. Although times were tough in the Depression, and her father had a hard time making money through music, he nurtured a love for music in his young daughter.

Wanda was an only child, with a father who had a passion for music—a detail that was probably more important than any other in fostering Wanda's own musical ambitions.

From 1956 until 1961, Wanda recorded her great rockers for Capitol, including her only real hit, Let's Have A Party, which charted at Number 37 in 1960, several years after the song had been recorded by both Elvis and the Collins Kids.
