I’m Sorry by Brenda Lee

Brenda Lee was 15 when “I’m Sorry” reached the Billboard Hot 100 and she was already a star. She had been recording since the age of 13 and her “Sweet Nothin’s” had reached number four.

The label was uncomfortable with a 15 year old singing about unrequited love. The label finally issued “I’m Sorry” as the flip side of “That’s All You Gotta Do, which made it to number six. Disc Jockey’s also began playing “I’m Sorry” and on July 18, 1960, it reached number one where it remained for three weeks.

Brenda Lee placed 55 songs on the Hot 100 and when the pop hits ran out, she re-invented herself as a country artist and placed dozens of singles on the Billboard Country Chart.

She has been elected to The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, The Country Hall Of Fame, The Rockabilly Hall Of Fame, and The Hit Parade Hall Of Fame.
