Rockabilly icon and personal hero of ours Wanda Jackson (who we love so much, we did a tribute album of her music) is back in the studio with Justin Townes Earle producing. The album will be out in October on Sugar Hill Records.
As JTE tells it, he encouraged her to return to her roots.
"From day one I really liked Justin's idea to take me back to my roots and make a record of country, blues, and rockabilly songs," Jackson tells Rolling Stone. "The band was extra tight and great to work with during the whole process. The record just sounds terrific and I'm hoping that my fans enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed making it."
Rolling Stone posted this video from the studio in Nashville with some snippets of the new songs. Watch it HERE.
