Music fans sometimes forget how lucky they are that Wanda Jackson still belts it out these days. The 80-year-old singer could just as easily be resting on her laurels back home in Oklahoma City, satisfied with her place in history as one of the first and most distinctive female rockabilly performers in the 1950s. Jackson has had an illustrious career that encompasses rock & roll ferocity and country-pop vulnerability, but she continues to tour even after the death last year of her longtime husband-manager, Wendell Goodman. In some ways, Jackson is even more important than her former tour mate Elvis Presley. Not only did she write some of her own classic songs, she demolished the quaint myth that women singers could only be demure paper dolls onstage. Jackson also headlines the massive Roots Roadhouse festival at the Echoplex on Sunday, April 8.
