Personalities | Wanda Jackson | Rockabilly | Country
(Vocals, b. 1937)
Born in Maud, Oklahoma, Jackson was discovered by Hank Thompson and first recorded country for Decca in 1954. After appearing on shows with Elvis Presley and a label switch to Capitol, she cut several rockabilly classics. Jackson introduced much-needed glamour to the largely male world of rockabilly, and her rasping vocal style is instantly recognizable. A born-again Christian, she still tours the world performing an authentic rockabilly act.
