Mandy Barnett charms with a fresh take on songs that made Nashville famous.

On its way to becoming “Music City,” Nashville was the hub of musical genre blending and innovation, influenced by the big band era and pre-rock pop. Country stars crossed over into pop, while many well-known pop singers of the day made albums in Nashville.  

The “Nashville Songbook” is a collection of tunes that define this era—some of the most influential and iconic country and pop standards ever written.  Barnett salutes this great anthology, performing songs originally recorded by artists as diverse as Roy OrbisonPatsy ClineElvisTammy WynetteHank WilliamsThe Everly BrothersBrenda LeeJohnny Cash, and more—including a Meghan Trainor modern surprise. 

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 (Rolling Stone named her I’ve Got a Right to Cry its “Top Country Album” in the year of its release) 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

“Her voice is so rich and pure and with the variety of songs that she sang, she truly brought the house down, and lifted them up! Mandy’s voice just seems to get better year after year.”
