I know there are a few male artists who are in both the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Country Music Hall of Fame. But are there any females?

Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Hank Williams, Jimmie Rodgers, Floyd Cramer, Chet Atkins and producer Sam Phillips are enshrined in both halls of fame. But only one female performer, Brenda Lee, has been so honored. The 4-foot-9-inch powerhouse, known most of her life as "Little Miss Dynamite," remains active at 62. Her latest CD, Gospel Duets with Treasured Friends, is a collection of hymn collaborations with Dolly Parton, Vince Gill, rocker Huey Lewis and nine other superstar guests that returns her to her roots in spiritual music.
