About Barbara Mandrell...

Barbara Mandrell

Barbara Mandrell was, by the tender age of five, already on the way to becoming a country music sensation.

Today, Barbara Mandrell is considered a pioneer of the industry and a music legend among fans everywhere.

Born to a musical family in Houston, Texas, Barbara Mandrell began playing the accordion and reading sheet music before she could read words.

By the age of eleven, Barbara Mandrell was a prodigy on the steel guitar, which prompted her father to take her to a music trade show in Chicago.

Her performance caught the attention of legendary country music guitarists, Chet Atkins (Friday 20 June 1924 - Saturday 30 June 2001) and 'Uncle' Joe Maphis (Thursday 12 May 1921 - Friday 27 June 1986).  It was Barbara Mandrell's first foray into the music industry, and the beginning of a storied, and successful, career in country music.

After her landmark performance at a trade show, 'Uncle' Joe Maphis (Thursday 12 May 1921 - Friday 27 June 1986) invited Barbara Mandrell to join his show at The Showboat Hotel in Las Vegas.  It became one of the single greatest influences on her musicianship and, by the time she was a teenager, Barbara Mandrell was touring with 'The Johnny Cash Show' - Johnny Cash (Friday 26 February 1932 - Friday 12 September 2003).

'The Johnny Cash Show' included high-profile guests, including Patsy Cline (Thursday 8 September 1932 - Tuesday 5 March 1963), George Jones (Saturday 12 September 1931 - Friday 26 April 2013) and June Carter Cash (Sunday 23 June 1929 - Thursday 15 May 2003).

A short time later, Barbara Mandrell’s father, Irby Mandrell, formed The Mandrell Family Band, and the act embarked on a successful tour across Asia.  The formation of the band also brought Barbara Mandrell together with her future husband, Ken Dudney, after her dad hired him as the drummer.

In 1967, Barbara Mandrell married Ken Dudney and made the decision to step away from the music industry to focus on being a wife.  She’d just returned from an exhausting tour in another country and had already been working for nearly a decade when she turned nineteen years old.

In 1968, Barbara Mandrell went to live with her parents after Ken Dudney, who was working as a Navy carrier pilot at the time, was deployed.

Barbara Mandrell gradually began playing a few shows again here and there at the urging of friends in the industry.  Barbara Mandrell had a come-to-Jesus moment while sitting in the balcony of The Ryman Auditorium in Nashville with her father, watching another female performer on stage.

Barbara Mandrell felt that she was not destined for a life of sitting in the audience.  Barbara Mandrell’s passion was reignited and she made the decision to get back on stage and give it her all as a solo artist.

Barbara Mandrell moved to Nashville after high school and signed a recording contract with Columbia Records in 1969.
