March 6, 2013 - In 2011 Wanda Jackson re-entered the spotlight with her Jack White produced disc The Party Ain’t Over. The album drew attention to the rockabilly pioneer three decades after her last hit song and it was her first record to make it onto the Billboard Top 200 Album chart. British singer Adele requested Jackson to open for her, and cited her as the inspiration for her own hit “Rolling in the Deep,” adding to the praise that finally puts Jackson in her rightful place a trailblazer.
One of the first popular female rockabilly singers, Wanda Jackson served as a
pioneering rock and roll artist in the 1950s and 1960s. Known by many as the Queen of
Rockabilly, Jackson is credited with being the first woman to record a rock and roll song
– “Let’s Have a Party” in 1958.
