Jack White to Join Wanda Jackson on Tour in January
Country and rockabilly legend Wanda Jackson will be joined by the sleepless workhorse of indie rock, Jack White, for a pair of concerts promoting her new album next month. White, best known as the leader of the White Stripes, produced Jackson's forthcoming album 'This Party Ain't Over.'
If it sounds like an odd pairing, then maybe you've forgotten that White's country bona fides are actually pretty strong. He produced and played on Loretta Lynn's 2004 Grammy Award winning album 'Van Lear Rose,' and set up a recording studio and manufacturing plant in his new hometown of Nashville. He also recorded bluegrass versions of two songs by one of his other bands, the Raconteurs, with the help of Ricky Skaggs.
You can catch the current and future legends on stage together on January 21 in Brooklyn, N.Y. and two nights later in Los Angeles, Calif.
