Known as the Guitar Granny, Cordell Jackson, 84, began performing in the 1930s with her father's band, the Pontiac Ridge Runners. She spent several years as a real estate agent, but in 1980 she resurrected her label, Moon Records, and revitalized her music career. In short, she kicks ass. Awesome guitarist, DIY musician and inspiration: Cordell Jackson.
