    Wanda Jackson, Jack White to Perform on the "Late Show with David Letterman"

    Wanda Jackson is the musical guest on the Late Show with David Letterman tonight. She'll perform a song off her soon-to-be-released Third Man / Nonesuch Records album The Party Ain't Over, due out on Tuesday, backed by the album's producer, Jack White, on guitar, and The Third Man House Band. Also slated to appear on tonight's show are Kaley Cuoco (The Big Band Theory) and CNN's Piers Morgan. Tune in to CBS tonight at 11:35 PM EST.

    Not long before then, Jackson will be at a Broadway theater near Letterman's Ed Sullivan Theater to join the cast of the musical Million Dollar Quartet in the finale of that evening's performance. The play recounts one very special jam session from 1956 featuring Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, and Elvis Presley, whom Jackson dated and with whom she toured that year.

    Ticket Giveaway to Sold-Out Brooklyn, Los Angeles Shows:

    Jackson, White, and The Third Man Band will launch a series of sold-out record-release shows at the Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn, New York, tomorrow night, followed by performances at the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles Sunday and Monday nights. Nonesuch Records is giving away a pair of tickets to each of these shows. To enter to win, simply e-mail info@nonesuch.com by 10 AM tomorrow morning and let us know which show you'd like to attend. Winners will be announced shortly thereafter.

    **UPDATE (1/21, 1 PM ET): Congratulations to Mark Piro, Ghazal Hashemi, and William Kyle Wilkerson, winners of the Wanda Jackson ticket giveaway from Nonesuch, and thanks to all who entered!**

    If these shows are anything like what unfolded at the Third Man Records show in Nashville earlier this week, the audiences are in for something special indeed. The Nashville Scene calls the event "nothing short of amazing ... It was incredible." The paper's Nashville Cream blog goes on to say of the pairing between Jackson and White: "The interplay between them was such a joy to watch" and of the music they made:

    Nothing short of incredible. We fell in love with Jackson's new record, the White-produced The Party Ain't Over, after about, oh, 10 seconds of listening, so we had pretty high expectations. We were not disappointed ... All hail the Queen of Rock ’n’ Roll!

    There are just a few more days to pre-order The Party Ain't Over on vinyl and CD in the Nonesuch Store and receive a poster autographed by Jackson. To do so and receive the complete album as audiophile-quality, 320 kbps MP3s on release day as well, head to the Nonesuch Store now. Time Out New York says this of the album: "A blaring affair hooked upon Jackson’s famed snarl, White’s wild guitar and—atypical for both artists—a generous heaping of soulful horns, the album pops with the wicked glee of early rock & roll."

    Rhiannon Giddens stopped by NPR, joined by multi-instrumentalist Francesco Turrisi and bassist Jason Sypher, to perform a Tiny Desk Concert of songs from her new album, there is no Other, and her previous album, Freedom Highway. You can watch it here. "Despite its weightiness, Rhiannon Giddens' music is entertaining, and her voice, the melodies, and her accompaniment are engaging," says host Bob Boilen. "But it is music infused with lessons and deep purpose—something all too rare in popular music in my opinion."
