Rock 'n' roll biographies are far from uncommon, but the story of Wanda Jackson is an anomaly. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer dubbed the “Queen of Rockabilly” will discuss her long career and her new book Every Night is Saturday Night: A Country Girl's Journey to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame at the GRAMMY Museum on Nov. 14 (tickets here).
Beginning in 1954, Wanda Jackson has claimed over 30 hits on the pop and country charts, including her signature “Let's Have a Party” and “Fujiyama Mama.” She returned to prominence in 2009 when her Jack White-produced album The Party Ain't Over introduced her to a whole new generation of fans.
Throughout her career, Wanda Jackson has toured and recorded with rock royalty. Jackson's first national tour was in support of an up and coming young rocker named Elvis Presley, who she was also romantically involved with for a time. Over the years, she also toured with the likes of Carl Perkins and Johnny Cash, and in more recent years with Adele, who lists her as a major influence.
During her special GRAMMY Museum appearance, Jackson will participate in a Q&A session moderated by GRAMMY Museum Executive Director Scott Goldman, sign copies of her book, and give a special performance.
