Music legend Wanda Jackson is the Queen of Rockabilly. The 75-year old icon has been a resident of Oklahoma all of her life.
Wanda began her recording career in the 50s and had her first hit with ‘You Can’t Have My Love’ With Billy Gray in 1954.
In the late 50s she met Elvis Presley and often shared a bill with Elvis. He would coach her how to play Rock and Roll and for a time they dated.
Some 50 years later in 2009, Wanda teamed up with Jack White and recorded the album ‘The Party Ain’t Over’. Her most recent album ‘Unfinished Business’ was produced by Justin Townes Earle.
