This weekend, the 98 Country Spotlight shines on Stonewall Jackson, born November 1932, a singer and musician.

He was named after the confederate General Thomas Stonewall Jackson.  He claims the General was an ancestor of his.

The song he’s most remembered for is Waterloo”.  It was at number one for five weeks and even showed up on the Top forty Billboard Hot 100 chart.  It sold over a million copies.

Jackson hit the road with Ernest Tubb.   He also worked with Ray Price, Hank Williams and Lefty Frizzell.
