Jack White to Produce Rockabilly Queen, Wanda Jackson


It's no secret that Jack White is an electrifying musician. Having sold millions of records with the White Stripes, the Raconteurs, and most recently, The Dead Weather, it's always cause for excitement to learn of his side projects. I had the chance to witness him perform up close in 2008 while touring with the Raconteurs (see video clips below).

This news on Pitchfork this morning hit me like a ton of bricks (or a ton of grammys): Jack White to Produce Wanda Jackson.

His work in 2004 with Loretta Lynn on Van Lear Rose was both thrilling and beautiful. I cannot wait to see what he can do with this Oklahoman flashbomb.
