Here's two articles relating to the legendary Wanda Jackson and Jack White:


Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Wanda Jackson will donate and autograph memorabilia to the Tulsa casino and hotel at 11 a.m. Friday, her manager and husband, Wendell Goodman, confirmed with the Tulsa World.

The event is free, all ages and open to the public, 11 a.m. in the Grand Lobby of the Hard Rock Casino and Hotel, 777 South Cherokee Street, Catoosa, said a venue spokeswoman.

She will sign one of her signature pink Daisy Rock guitars for Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa’s music memorabilia collection, as well as address fans and answer questions from the media, Hard Rock officials confirmed.

Jackson will also be available for an autograph signing for local fans, the venue confirmed.

Jackson's career spans rock 'n' roll, rockabilly, country and gospel. She's shared stages with some of the biggest names in modern music history, from Elvis Presley to Elvis Costello. She is 72 years old.

She’s widely known as the first woman to record a rock tune, “Let’s Have a Party,” in 1959. Jackson is also a member of the Rockabilly Hall of Fame, the Oklahoma Music and Oklahoma Country Music halls of fame, as well as the International Gospel and German Music halls of fame.

In addition
to recording several rockabilly hits including “Hot Dog! That Made Him Mad,” “Fujiyama Mama” and “Let’s Have a Party,” Jackson also attained a successful career in mainstream country music. Some of her country hits include “Tears Will Be The Chaser For Your Wine,” “My Big Iron Skillet” and “Fancy Satin Pillows.”

In related news, the first two Jack White-produced tunes by Oklahoma rock pioneer Wanda Jackson will be released to iTunes and vinyl on Jan. 26.

Jackson, aka "The Queen of Rockabilly," traveled to Nashville last November to work with the indie rock king Jack White, she said in 2009.

The rockabilly legend’s debut single features two tracks (in the traditional sense of a "two-sided" album single) from the November recording sessions -- her cover of Amy Winehouse’s 2006 tune “You Know I’m No Good” and the 1960 hit by Johnny Kidd and the Pirates, “Shakin’ All Over.”

Jackson called White, “One of the biggest stars on the planet I guess right now.”

Also, White also produced Loretta Lynn's last release, "Van Lear Rose." It won two Grammy awards in 2005.

White's own music acts include the White Stripes, the Dead Weather and The Raconteurs.

Jackson’s no stranger to unexpected collaborations. She’s also recorded with The Cramps, Elvis Costello, Lee Rocker and Rosie Flores, to name a few.

"I haven’t been told the exact date yet,” Goodman said from his south Oklahoma City office.

He confirmed that the songs were covers of Amy Winehouse’s "You Know I’m No Good” and early British rock band Johnny Kidd and the Pirates’ "Shakin’ All Over.” Goodman also confirmed an Oklahoma Rock Newsblog report that the songs would be released on iTunes and on seven-inch vinyl.

The Oklahoman reported in November that alternative rock star White had invited Jackson to Nashville to record under his production guidance. White also produced country star Loretta Lynn’s Grammy-winning album, "Van Lear Rose,” in 2004.

Oklahoma’s "Queen of Rockabilly,” whose career began in the mid-1950s under the mentorship of Elvis Presley, has worked with such other new generation rockers as Dave Alvin, The Cramps, Rosie Flores, Lee Rocker, the Cadillac Angels and another Elvis — last name Costello.

In addition to the White Stripes, White performs with the Raconteurs and the Dead Weather.
