    Brenda Lee

    1958 a 13 year old that was using music as a way to earn money for her family. Walked into a studio and in one take recorded Rockin Around the Christmas tree. It took a couple years for it to take off . In 1960 it took off and to this day among the best just plain fun non religious Christmas songs. real natural talent.

    She is still around. Yesterday on the way back from town, she was being interviewed on SiriusXM Willies Roadhouse channel.
    Just a few tidbits- she has sold more records than anyone except Elvis and the Beatles.
    She is in the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame and the Country Hall Of Fame.
    Once, when she was playing gigs in England in the early 60’s, the Beatles were the opening act for one of her shows, before they became famous.

    Democrats are doing more to destroy our country than the Russians could ever hope to do.

    This is the song that story is about. Been a fan a long time. I plan to rip some of her music for my bikes play list. When I'm Sorry went big it brought Rocking around the Christmas tree up with it it had lag after being released in 1958.
