Mandy Barnett sings “Walking The Floor Over You”
Mandy Barnett, a native of Crossville, Tennessee, started singing at five years-old. She has been singing since. As a teenager, Mandy starred as country music legend Patsy Cline in the stage show “Always . . . Patsy Cline” at the celebrated Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee. The performances sold out nightly and received rave reviews across the country.
Mandy soon signed with Asylum Records where she released her first album as herself, appropriately entitled, “Mandy Barnett.”
Owen Bradley who also worked with Ernest Tubb, Brenda Lee, Loretta Lynn, Patsy Cline and Kitty Wells, was Barnett’s producer for “I’ve Got A Right To Cry.” He passed away four songs into the project. His brother completed the project and it was named the top country album of 1999.
Mandy tours regularly, nationally and internationally, and is a frequent guest on the Grand Ole Opry. She reprised her role as “Patsy Cline” in the acclaimed production “Always . . . Patsy Cline” at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee.
In 2010 Cracker Barrel released Mandy’s Christmas album “Winter Wonderland.”
Mandy’s “Sweet Dreams” album, released in 2011. Along with Cline hits like “Crazy,” “I Fall To Pieces,” “Faded Love,” and the album title track, Mandy offers stunning versions of Irving Berlin’s pop standard “Always” and the Mel Tillis-penned “Strange.”
Mandy’s latest album, “I Can’t Stop Loving You: The Songs of Don Gibson,” debuted in November 2013. It’s a salute to the iconic songs penned by Country Music Hall of Fame member Gibson, whom Mandy befriended a few years prior to his passing in 2003. With this release, Mandy fulfills her long-ago promise to Gibson to record a collection of his songs.
