An American country music singer, musician, and actress, Barbara Mandrell is known for a series of top-10 hits and TV shows in the 1970s and 1980s that helped her become one of country’s most successful female vocalists of that period. She was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2009 and is a member of the Grand Ole Opry.
Mandrell was the first performer to win the Country Music Association’s “Entertainer of the Year” award twice. She also won twice the Country Music Association’s “Female Vocalist of the Year” in 1979 and 1981.
Mandrell’s first Billboard number-one hit was 1978’s “Sleeping Single in a Double Bed”, immediately followed by “(If Loving You Is Wrong) I Don’t Want to Be Right” in early 1979. In 1980, “Years” also reached number one. She added one more chart topper in each of the next three years. “I Was Country When Country Wasn’t Cool” (her signature song), then “‘Till You’re Gone” and “One of a Kind Pair of Fools”—all hit number one between 1981 and 1983, a period during which Mandrell also received numerous industry awards and accolades.
