Wanda Jackson Says She Was Nervous Working With Jack White
Wanda Jackson admits she was nervous about teaming up with Jack White for her new record The Party Aint Over.
Jackson says she was intimidated by the White Stripes rocker.
Hes a big star, as big as they come anywhere on the planet, so that was exciting, she said.
But he also is a rock star, and I dont do this current, contemporary rock-style music. So thats where the apprehension came in. I wasnt sure if wed see eye to eye.
He told me, Im not changing your style. I just want to give you fresh material and a fresh sound.
He pushed me a lot, having me do songs that were out of my comfort zone. It didnt really bother me but it was a little hard to understand what he was wanting from my performance, so it just took a little while to settle in with him.
But as we worked together I settled down, and I realized that he had my best interest at mind and he was going to produce a really fine album.
