On Friday, October 10, 2014, we welcome Mandy Barnett to the Walker Center. Her style is rooted in classic country and pop crooning. She delves into a song with a keen interpretative sense, studying the intricacies of its emotional content and rendering a powerful performance through her full-bodied voice.

As a teenager, Mandy starred as country music legend Patsy Cline at the celebrated Ryman Auditorium in Nashville.  The performances sold out nightly and received rave reviews across the country. 

Mandy’s self-titled first album received glowing reviews, including from Time magazine. Rolling Stone magazine named Mandy’s “I’ve Got a Right to Cry” as the top country album of 1999.  Other stellar reviews appeared in People, Newsweek, Interview, and multiple national newspapers. Mandy appeared on “The Late Show with David Letterman,” “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” “CBS Sunday Morning,” and PBS’s “Sessions at West 54th” as a result of her acclaim.

The 2010 exclusive Cracker Barrel store release of Mandy’s Christmas album, “Winter Wonderland,” was followed by her 2011 “Sweet Dreams” album, which features renditions of Patsy Cline classics. And her latest album, “I Can’t Stop Loving You: The Songs of Don Gibson,” debuted in November 2013. Covering the album’s debut, “USA Today” called Mandy one of the "finest classic country and torch singers" to come out of Nashville.

This performance is sponsored by Interflex.
