Her mother remarried a man named Jay Rainwater, who worked at the “Jimmy Skinner Music Center” record store, and Brenda sang there on weekends. She received the nickname “Little Miss Dynamite” in 1957, after recording the song “Dynamite” when she was only 12.
Brenda met Ronnie at a November 1962 Bo Diddley and Jackie Wilson concert at Nashville’s Fairgrounds Coliseum and married him less than six months later, on April 24, 1963. Charles Ronald “Ronnie” Shacklett has remained private about his personal details, but the only thing we know about him is that he is the son of a Metropolitan councilman married to Mrs. Earl C. Shacklett who lived at 314 Elberta St., Nashville. Brenda and Ronnie have two daughters, Jolie and Julie (named after Patsy Cline’s daughter), and three grandchildren, Taylor, Jordan, and Charley.
