Yet somehow Wanda Jackson completely escaped my notice until she showed up on a Pandora station I created right after college. How had I never heard her before? Who knows. But maybe you haven't heard her either, which is a shame because she was a pioneer in early rock, helping to fuse blues and country into what would become rock 'n' roll.
And she is still touring and recording today. Here's a tune you might recognize from the end credits of Bridesmaids.
"Shakin' All Over"
And a fun cover of a classic:
"Rum and Coca Cola"
