Barnett kicks off tour at CCP Friday

CROSSVILLE — World-class vocalist and Crossville native Mandy Barnett returns to the Cumberland County Playhouse stage for a very special Christmas concert Nov. 23 at 8 p.m. The concert – which marks the start of her 2012 “Winter Wonderland” Christmas tour – will feature songs from her 2010 album “Winter Wonderland,” which distinguished music historian and critic Robert K. Oermann calls “an instant classic.”

Mandy began singing when she was five and has been singing since. As a teenager, she starred as country music legend Patsy Cline in the stage show “Always . . . Patsy Cline” at the celebrated Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. The performances were sold out nightly and received rave reviews across the country. She has reprised the roles many times since then.

Mandy’s first two albums, “Mandy Barnett” and “I’ve Got a Right to Cry” were both huge critical successes and gained her appearances on “The Late Show with David Letterman” and “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.”

In addition to her own albums, Mandy has been featured on movie soundtracks, including “A Walk On the Moon,” “Traveller,” “Space Cowboys,” “Election,” “Drop Dead Gorgeous,” and “Crazy.” Mandy also sang on the SpongeBob SquarePants album “The Best Day Ever,” sharing the spotlight with the likes of Brian Wilson, Tommy Ramone, Flaco Jimenez, and NRBQ.

Mandy’s Playhouse appearance is sponsored by Mitchell Drug Company.

Also at the Playhouse are Joseph & the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (rated G, sponsored by M. Stewart Galloway, MD/Cumberland Eye Care) through Dec. 23, and A Sanders Family Christmas (rated G, sponsored by Stonehaus Winery) through Dec. 22. Tickets and information are also available for Southern Stars Symphonic Brass Band and other events. Remember, 2013 season memberships and gift certificates are on sale now…just stop by or call the box office at 931.484.5000. All CCP productions are made possible through sponsor support, with additional support provided by the Tennessee Arts Commission and the National Endowment for the Arts.
