I love Wanda Jackson’s music. After hearing her self titled 2008 album (thanks to my rockabilly sister @gothabetty ), I had to hear more. Wanda’s growling country twangs were unlike anything I had listened to before. She was an icon for future women in the music industry, and for country combining with glamour. This was a great book. The title “Every Night is Saturday Night” really matches her life story: a musical entertainer who always wanted to have a good time! Wanda has worked with and inspired a countless number of other musicians from Buck Owens to Jack White. I was surprised by some of the people she named! This was a fun biography to read because it felt like I was listening to a woman affectionately reminiscing about the days behind her, yet smiling because she’s not done yet!
I’m looking forward to seeing her play live at Roots Revival this month. It’ll be a big party with the Queen of Rockabilly! 🎶

With the CMAs being last night I felt like now would be a great time to bust out this song written by my buddy/country music fanatic @jakegain021 Honored that he asked me to record the first take of it. Go give him a follow and enjoy!
