Wanda Jackson

One of the key styles of early rock n roll, Rockabilly combined rock and blues with country, or "hillbilly", music. Rockabilly artists tended to cultivate a wild, "bad boy" image. Some people consider Rockabilly artists to be rock's first punks. Although there have been many revivals throughout the years, we will focus on the original Rockabilly movement, which only lasted from about 1956 to 1960.
