Wanda Jackson (born October 20, 1937) is an American singer and songwriter. She has recorded and released music in the genres of rock, country and gospel. She was among the first women to have a career in rock and roll, which helped give her the nickname “The Queen of Rockabilly”. She is also counted among the first female stars in the genre of country music.

Wanda Jackson began performing as a child and she was then discovered by country singer Hank Thompson, who helped her secure a recording contract and Jackson had her first hit single with the country song “You Can’t Have My Love”. She then began touring the following year with Elvis Presley. The two briefly dated and Presley encouraged her to record in the Rockabilly style. In 1956, Jackson signed with Capitol Records where she  recorded both country and Rockabilly. The label released a string of Jackson’s rock singles, including “Fujiyama Mama”, “Mean Mean Man” and the top 40 hit “Let’s Have a Party”.

In the 1960s, Jackson moved to the country genre and had several charting singles during the decade. This included “Right or Wrong”, “In the Middle of a Heartache”, “Tears Will Be the Chaser for Your Wine” and “A Woman Lives for Love”. After re-discovering Christianity in 1971, Jackson made gospel music a priority in her career. She left Capitol Records in 1973 and signed with Word Records to focus more on the gospel circuit. Over the next two decades, she released a series of gospel discs.
