New Exhibit Honors Brenda Lee

The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum will honor Brenda Lee with a new exhibition, Brenda Lee: Dynamite, Presented by Great American Country Television Network, beginning Aug. 7.

The exhibition will run through June, 2010. Brenda is certainly one of music's most accomplished artists. She scored her earliest hits in the pop field, with No. 1 singles like "I'm Sorry" and "I Want to Be Wanted," recorded when she was still a teenager. Her country career took off in 1973, when "Nobody Wins" reached No. 5. She scored several other Top 10 country hits, including "Big Four Poster Bed" and "Rock on Baby." In 1997, Brenda was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame, and in 2002, she was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, becoming the only female member of both prestigious Halls. In February of this year, Brenda received the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. Brenda will also be hosting the Sunday Mornin' Country celebration during CMA Music Festival in Nashville, June 14, at the Grand Ole Opry House. The annual show features country and gospel stars performing their favorite spiritual songs.
