    Video: Wanda Jackson Featured on CBS Evening News; Denver Post Says Her Voice Is "In Fine Form"
    Michaela Neller

    Wanda Jackson was featured on the CBS Evening News last night. CBS contributor Anthony Mason spoke with Jackson about her five-and-a-half decades of music making: her earliest days performing country music, her time touring with (and dating) Elvis Presley, her groundbreaking role as the Queen of Rock, her induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and her latest album, her Jack White-produced Third Man / Nonesuch Records debut, The Party Ain't Over.

    "You're as hot now as you've ever been," says Mason. To see what Jackson has say, watch the segment below.

    Jackson's current US tour took her on a swing through Colorado this past weekend, with shows at the Boulder Theater on Friday and the Belly Up in Aspen on Saturday. Her show at the Bluebird Theater in Denver scheduled for last night was postponed to tonight due to inclement weather ("thunder on the mountains," perhaps?).

    Reviewing Friday's show, the Denver Post's says "Jackson’s voice was in fine form (despite her complaints about the dry Colorado air) and her signature rock ‘n’ roll bad girl growl sounds just as sexy at 73 as it must have at 17." Read the review and see photos from the show at heyreverb.com.

    Member-supported KDHX radio, out of St. Louis, reviewed Jackson's recent concert at that city's Blueberry Hill. "It was truly a pleasure to watch one of the first and feistiest ladies of rockabilly (really it's hard to place Wanda Jackson in just one category) work her magic," writes KDHX reviewer Liz Taylor. "You just can't beat that eager and inviting energy inherent to rockabilly music and Jackson fully embodies that vibe, at turns party girl, jilted, yet never completely naive lover, seductress albeit a sweetly chaste one, gospel singer and straight up rock & roller."
