Merry Christmas Brenda!
Brenda Lee, The Oak Ridge Boys, Conway Twitty, and Porter Wagoner have been chosen to receive the Cliffie Stone Pioneer Award from the Academy of Country Music this year. This award honors individuals who are pioneers in the country music genre.
Thanks to an impressive string of pop hits in the 1950s and 1960s, Brenda Lee remains one of the best-selling female artists in history, and she introduced Nashville's music to audiences throughout the world. She made her first chart appearance in 1957 with "One Step at a Time," debuting on the Grand Ole Opry that same year and earning the nickname "Little Miss Dynamite" from the success of her following hit song "Dynamite." Lee expanded the horizons of country music with successful international tours and recordings in multiple languages, becoming best-known for her beloved classic "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree." She joined the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1997 and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2002, becoming the only woman in history to be honored by both institutions. Since then she has been inducted into the Rockabilly Hall of Fame which makes her the only woman honored by the Halls of Fame for three major music genres . . . an acomplishment may never be matched.
You can honestly say that Little Miss Dynamite just keeps "coming on strong!"
