Woman Walk The Line: How The Women of Country Music Changed Our Lives has been chosen as one of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame 2018 Author’s Series Selections, and anchors a Women in Country Music Day on Saturday, July 21 with Wanda Jackson.
Moderated by editor Holly Gleason, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame panel will feature several of the book’s contributors including Jackson, Aubrie Sellers, former CREEM editor Deborah Sprague, and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Director of Artist Relations Shelby Morrison reading and discussing a woman’s place in country music. The day of celebration will conclude appropriately with music, culminating in a performance by the legendary rockabilly queen herself.
Along with appearing on the panel, Jackson is busy working on brand new music. Fellow female Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame member Joan Jett is producing the as-yet-unnamed project, which is currently anticipated for a 2019 release. After decades of recording covers, Jackson hit the writing room for this project, co-writing with many Nashville songwriters including Angaleena Presley of the Pistol Annies. “Ex’s and Oh’s” singer Elle King also contributed a song to the new project.
On August 4, Woman Walk The Line: How The Women of Country Music Changed Our Live will also serve as the focal point for a final panel in conjunction with the Country Music Hall of Fame’s Loretta Lynn: Blue Kentucky Girl exhibition. Brenda Lee, Jeannie Seely, Gleason, and Aubrie Sellers will discuss Lynn’s impact, as well as the power of women’s voices in contemporary life across country music. Book signings will follow each event.
