Mandy Barnett: The Nashville Songbook
August 13, 2019
Recording artist and performer Mandy Barnett, original star of the musical Always… Patsy Cline at Nashville’s famed Ryman Auditorium, makes her Feinstein’s/54 Below debut with tunes from her Nashville Songbook show and other personal favorites. The Nashville Songbook is a collection of standards that made Nashville famous—some of the most influential and iconic country and pop songs ever written, originally recorded by Roy Orbison, Patsy Cline, Brenda Lee, Tammy Wynette, Eddy Arnold, and more. Barnett has toured her eclectic repertoire with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, the Nashville Symphony Orchestra, and the Ulster Orchestra in Belfast, among other esteemed groups and venues, and has had recordings featured in numerous film and television soundtracks. Spend an enchanting night of entertainment with one of Nashville’s “finest classic-country and torch singers” (USA Today) with a show that appeals to music fans of all types—who will undoubtedly want to sing along to some of the best-known classics of all time!
It’s no accident that Mandy Barnett pays tribute to The Nashville Songbook. Mandy has a deep connection to the songs she’ll be singing at Feinstein’s/54 Below, and also to the artists who recorded them. Mandy grew up in East Tennessee and came to Nashville frequently as a child and teenager to perform. During that time, she met many legendary country and pop artists and songwriters. Mandy is so pleased to have the opportunity to honor these icons at her show!

Ms. Barnett had the vocal finesse: the husky dives, the controlled slides and the timing.
