This Day in Georgia History

June 05, 1960

“I’m Sorry” Released

The recording company for 15-year-old Brenda Mae Tarpley released a record that would become a million seller and even bump Chubby Checker’s “The Twist” from number one on the record chart. The young Lithonia native had adopted the stage name of Brenda Lee, and her soon-to-be hit song was entitled “I’m Sorry.”
