¡Feliz Cumpleaños, Wanda Jackson!

AKA Wanda Lavonne Jackson.*

Born October 20, 1937.

She is one of my all-time favorite country singers. I still remember the day I heard one of her songs playing in the music area of a now-deceased bookstore. It took me a while to get accustomed to her twang but once I did, I could not help wondering why I had ever had an issue with the type of singers who sang with twangs. Ignorance, I suspect.

Of course, it doesn't hurt that she is also a favorite singer of Rosie Flores, who is also one of my favorite singers.

Plus I love the way Ms. Jackson wears that red dress in the above photo.

* Birth name.
