Oklahoman Wanda LaVonne Jackson was still in high school when she was discovered by county music star Hank Thompson. In 1956 she was signed to Capitol Records where she enjoyed a longtime relationship. Considered one of the first women to have a career in popular music (rock n’ Roll, and Country).
She earned the title “The Queen Of Rockabilly” with her early rockin’ hits like “Let’s Have A Party”. Later her hits slanted towards country with classics like “Right Or Wrong” and “I’m In The Middle Of A Heartache”. K-tel Records entered the picture and had Wanda record several great cover versions of some of her favorite “oldies” which went on to sell in great numbers.
Wanda Jackson was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2009.
