Bee, who was part Native American, was born in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, on August 18, 1939, raised in Bell Buckle, Tennessee, until she and her family moved to Tucson, Arizona sometime in the 1940s. When Bee was a child, she wanted to be a "prima ballerina". While in Arizona, Bee was discovered by "singing cowboy" Rex Allen, a disc jockey in Tucson, when he heard her singing. Allen was impressed with Bee's voice, and had the ten-year-old sing "Lovesick Blues" on his popular radio show
Molly Bee had several hits in the early '60s, crafting a showy stage persona, ideal for clubs. Raised in Beltbuckle, TN, Bee didn't begin singing until her family moved to Tucson, AZ. Even then, she started her singing career much earlier than most - she was ten years old when she gained the attention of Rex Allen, the singing cowboy. However, it was "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus," released late in 1952, that was her first major success. In 1953, she recorded "Don't Start Courtin' in a Hot Rod Ford," a duet with Tennessee Ernie Ford. The following year, she left Pinky Lee's show for Ford's daytime television show
