No. 20: Brenda Lee, ‘Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree’ – Top 50 Country Christmas Songs

Brenda Lee, Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree

Is any Christmas party complete without ‘Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree’? We certainly don’t think so. That’s why ’60s rockabilly star Brenda Lee’s rendition of the holiday tune scored a spot on the Top 50 Country Christmas Songs list.

Lee was only 13 when she recorded ‘Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree’ in 1958. The song climbed to No. 14 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. While she is typically considered a country singer, this hit had widespread pop music appeal for Lee.

‘Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree’ has been covered by dozens of artists, including country singers Amy Grant, Toby Keith, Alabama and LeAnn Rimes.
