STONEWALL JACKSON – Life Of A Poorboy. BACM CD 629

Our first STONEWALL JACKSON compilation, a hard core country singer and fine songwriter who got his break on the Grand Ole Opry just days after arriving in Nashville and pitching some songs to Wesley Rose. Ernest Tubb took him under his wing hiring him as an opener to his shows. Jackson’s early recordings were much influenced by his idol Hank Williams but he soon developed his own style and the hits followed including his massive crossover hit Waterloo in 1959. (Not on this CD but available on one of BACM’s Country Music Memories CDs. Most Popular Country Recordings of 1959, Volume 1 CD). Several of Jackson’s lesser known hits are featured, making this a fine hour’s listening for fans who enjoy the strong vibrant style of late 1950s country.
