George Bailey Lassoes Xmas
Happy Birthday Tom Waits!
Everybody loves a little rockabilly in their stocking, right? Thought so.
Known as "Little Miss Dynamite", since she was about the size of a tall elf, Brenda Lee easily lived up to her moniker (sorry, bad pun), cranking out some classic rockabilly and country and western-tinged sides. She has the distinction of being inducted in the Country Music, Rockabilly, and Rock'n'Roll Hall of Fames. Yeah, she was pretty good.
Y'all already know the big Christmas hit of hers. So I'm going to share a particular cowgirl fantasy favorite of mine. Who knew Santa was into bondage?
