Oklahoma rockabilly queen to earn her Stripes in the studio

"She just did her little Loretta Lynn songs. But he told me he’s gonna stretch me some, so we’ll see. We’ll talk later.”

This isn’t Jackson’s first association with new-generation rockers, having worked with Dave Alvin, The Cramps, Rosie Flores, Lee Rocker, the Cadillac Angels and another Elvis — last name Costello — on her 2003 comeback album, "Heart Trouble.”

Costello, in fact, was one of the stars who championed Jackson’s induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, which finally took place in April.

Jackson said she was introduced to White through her Web site manager, Jon Hensley, who had told her White was a big fan of her music.

Initially, Jackson and White will record a single for digital release before completing an album.

What’s next?
The rockabilly songbird’s next hometown show will be at 8 p.m. Nov. 21 at 66 Bowl, 6810 NW 39, celebrating the Route 66 landmark’s 50th anniversary.
