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.

Jackson moved to Nashville, Tennessee in 1956.  Jackson became the first artist to join the Grand Ole Opry before obtaining a recording contract.  His breakthrough song was in the late 50's written by George Jones, "Life to Go".  It peaked at number two in early 1959.

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.

Sunday enjoy the hits of Stonewall Jackson "Waterloo," "Life to Go," and "BJ the DJ" and more.  Join us Sunday at 11:00 AM for the life and music of Stonewall Jackson on the 98 Country Classic Spotlight.
