Wanda Jackson has claimed her title as the queen of rockabilly over the past few years, but the thought must still cross her mind: “Am I Even a Memory”?
Jackson recorded this heartbroken track for her latest album, Unfinished Business, by tapping into that painful question. And now she’s shot a distant-feeling video with Justin Townes Earle, who also produced the album.
Singing in Santa’s Pub, a crusty karaoke dive in Nashville, the pair trade verses for a few wobbly regulars at the bar while the ghost of Jackson’s past haunts her. See if you can spot the spirit in this spooky black-and-white clip.
