With her own recordings and live shows, Mandy Barnett has established herself as one of the great interpreters of American classic country and pop music. She first made her mark as a teenager portraying Patsy Cline in multiple sold-out runs of the stage musical Always…Patsy Cline at Nashville's famed Ryman Auditorium. Barnett has since built on that stage success considerably, carving out a prolific recording career with multiple critically acclaimed albums and showcasing her one-of-a-kind vocal talent on stages across the country and around the globe – from international music festivals to the Grand Ole Opry. She has appeared on The Tonight Show, The Late Show, CBS Sunday Morning, PBS’s Sessions at West 54th, PBS’s Bluegrass Underground, and numerous other television programs throughout her career. Additionally, she has been a featured artist on a host of movie and television series soundtracks. Barnett comes to 3rd and Lindsley right before the much-anticipated release of her next studio album, an orchestrated tour de force of torch songs produced by the renowned Fred Mollin (Jimmy Webb, Johnny Mathis, etc.) with arrangements by 95 year-old icon Sammy Nestico.
