Stonewall Jackson

Stonewall Jackson was one of the most popular country stars of the early '60s, scoring a string of Top Ten country hits and becoming a fixture at the Grand Ole Opry with a pleading voice that seemed to reflect his hard, often abusive upbringing on a south Georgia dirt farm. He was named after the Confederate general Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson, to whom he was related according to family legend. When he was ten he traded his bike for a guitar and began making up songs. Some of his later hits, such as "Don't Be Angry," were written very early in his creative life. Jackson began singing professionally in the mid-'50s, moving to Nashville in 1956. Within a few days of his arrival he delivered an unsolicited demonstration recording to the offices of the Acuff-Rose publishing house, and executive Wesley Rose heard his recorded singing and set up an audition for Jackson at the Grand Ole Opry. He became the first entertainer to join the Opry without a recording contract, performing first on the Opry's Friday Night Frolics before his official debut. Backed by Ernest Tubb's Texas Troubadours, he proved so popular that the audience demanded four encores.

Eventually Jackson hit the road with Tubb, who became a mentor to the young singer and songwriter. By early 1957, Jackson had signed a recording contract with Columbia Records and cut his first record, "Don't Be Angry." Jackson followed up with a cover of George Jones' "Life to Go," which peaked at number two in early 1959. The upbeat "Waterloo," with its mixture of novelty and melancholy, did even better, spending five weeks at the top of the country charts, hitting number four on the pop charts, and garnering Jackson some national television exposure. Through the early '60s Jackson was a consistent hitmaker with such country standards as "Why I'm Walkin'" (number six, 1960), "A Wound Time Can't Erase" (number three, 1962), and "I Washed My Hands in Muddy Water" (number eight, 1965). Jackson's second number one hit, "B.J. the D.J.," arrived in early 1964.

During the second half of the '60s, he reached Top 40 less often, scoring only one Top Ten hit: 1967's "Stamp Out Loneliness". His Columbia albums of this period contained ornate wordplay from the pens of well-established Nashville writers like Vic McAlpin; songs such as "Ship in a Bottle" and "Nevermore Quote the Raven" applied literary virtuosity to traditional country themes. By 1970, however, Jackson wasn't even hitting the Top 40. He bounced back briefly in 1971 with a cover of Lobo's "Me and You and a Dog Named Boo." In 1973, he had his last hit with "Herman Schwartz," which reached number 41. After that, Jackson continued to appear regularly on the Opry and to record occasionally, releasing albums like the inspirational Make Me Like a Child Again. He also re-recorded versions of his old hits, and he privately published his autobiography, From the Bottom Up, in 1991. ~ Sandra Brennan & James Manheim, Rovi

STONEWALL--- - - - P U R E COUNTRY---
Stonewall is very much alive & still sings great.He was a grand ole opry member for years and appeared on the opry many times but they stopped inviting him to appear saying he was no longer what the people wanted to hear causing him to sue (the opry).. Stoewall helped build Nashville and the opry.There is only a hand full of great country singers & he is one of the few left that paved the way for all these people that has no business being in country music
is he still alive?
Stonewall sued the .Shame on the opry for treating a legend this way. Stonewall was one of the people who put the opry on the map.They've done this to a lot of greats. They need to replace a bunch of these idiots
these old songs will never die. play more of them
I BELIEVE IT WAS BACK IN 1974 OR 75 THAT STONEWALL JACKSON AND HIS BAND CAME TO WEST BEND, WISCONSIN, I GOT TO GO SEE HIM I WAS RIGHT UP FRONT. HE KNEW ARTIE MINTZ A COUNTRY SINGER FROM WEST BEND.

One of the first crossover Country songs I heard on Rock and Roll radio growing up in Brooklyn, NY in 1959 was "Waterloo" by Stonewall Jackson. All I knew was it was not Doo Wop and I loved it. Along with "Singing the Blues" by Marty Robbins, "Hearaches By the Numbers" by Ray Price, "Purple People Eater" by Sheb Wooley and "Please Help Me I'm Falling" by Hank Locklin County Music made it up to NYC in the late 50s. Have loved Classic Country ever since.
