Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Brenda Lee has a major reason to be proud. Her holiday classic has entered the Grammy Hall of Fame.
Joining "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" by Brenda Lee, were timeless songs by such acclaimed artists as Aerosmith ("Walk This Way"), Miles Davis ("Round About Mightnight"), Dolly Parton ("Coat of Many Colors"), Tom Petty ("Full Moon Fever"), Link Wray ("Rumble"), and Nina Simone (To Be Young, Gifted and Black"), among many others.
In October of 2018, as Digital Journal reported, Brenda Lee's classic holiday song "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" turned sixty years old. Lee recorded the tune in October of 1958, at the age of 13, and it was released on Decca Records.
In August of 2018, Brenda Lee chatted with Digital Journal about her star on the Nashville Walk of Fame, and the digital transformation of the music industry.
Prior to that, in 2009, Lee was the recipient of the Grammy "Lifetime Achievement Award," which honored the 50-year anniversary of "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree."
