Singer Wanda Jackson exploded the notion that early rock-n-roll was a male-dominated genre through such formidable 1950s rockabilly singles as "Let's Have a Party, "Hot Dog! That Made Him Mad" and "Fujiyama Mama," and continued to prove that women could rock as hard as men for the next half-century. Jackson's voice was her secret weapon, capable of crooning the sweetest, tear-jerking country ballad on one side of a 45 and then burning up the studio with a full-throated rockabilly roar on the other. Jackson moved exclusively into country music in the mid-1960s, though the fire in songs like "This Gun Don't Care" remained white-hot until the 1970s, when she took up Christianity and gospel music. Her rockabilly sides enjoyed a revival in the 1980s that brought her back to recording rock music a decade later; the new millennium found her collaborating with Jack White and Elvis Costello on several popular albums while finally earning her spot in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Throughout it all, Wanda Jackson's indomitable voice retained its sass and spirit, which in turn underscored her status as one of early rock-n-roll's most memorable and colorful performers.
