It is an iconic Christmas classic -- still one of the most popular songs on the radio and played at home, even 60 years after it became a hit.

And singer Brenda Lee is still Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree, too!

She talks to Growing Bolder about life, being a legend and what it is like to be mentioned in the same breath as Elvis Presley, to be in the same list of top four recording artists of all time with Elvis, The Beatles and Ray Charles and to join the likes of Johnny Cash, Dolly Parton and Hank Williams Jr. in some of country music's top honors.

Plus, see why at 74 (she celebrated a birthday this week!) she's still so beloved by the country music community.

Passion, enthusiasm and optimism are the cornerstones of a successful life. As we grow older, it's imperative that we surround ourselves with those who share those values, because no attitude is as potentially harmful as a negative belief system about aging.
Struggling to hold on to the illusion of youth while avoiding the realities of aging is a losing and ultimately, self-destructive effort. We have to accept that we can't defeat aging, but here's a reminder: Growing Bolder isn't about holding on to youth!
