Barbara Mandell | CMA Award 2009

Barbara Mandell | CMA Award 2009 on Hot Topics -- Barbara Ann Mandrell was born on December 25, 1948. Barbara Mandell is an American country music singer. Barbara Mandell is best-known for a 1970s–1980s series of Top 10 hits and TV shows (1980-82) that helped her become one of country music's most successful female vocalists of the 1970s and 1980s.

Barbara Mandell was the first performer and is currently the only female in country music history to win the Country Music Association's "Entertainer of the Year" award twice, and she has also won the Country Music Association's "Female Vocalist of the Year" twice.

Barbara Mandrell was the first artist to win the CMA Entertainer Of The Year for two consecutive years and has won multiple awards from the CMA, ACM, American Music Awards, Grammys, People’s Choice Awards and a Dove Award. Her variety show, “Barbara Mandrell and the Mandrell Sisters,” on NBC drew millions of viewers weekly, and she has starred in numerous television shows, including her farewell performance at Nashville’s Opry House, a sell-out concert titled “Barbara Mandrell and The Do-Rites: The Last Dance.”

Mandrell, a country music veteran singer, was pleased to be present at the 43rd Annual Country Music Association Awards. Mandrell had glowing words of praise for Taylor Swift. Evidently, Mandrell was happy to pass the baton to the younger generation of performers. She would be happy to hold to candle to Swift’s rising star.

Another old timer to grace the CMA Awards was George Strait. Strait’s brother, John Buddy Strait, 58, has passed away and was found dead in his hotel room on April 10 2009. George Strait showed no signs of aging as he sang one of the classics.

It was Taylor Swift’s night as she won the Female Vocalist Of the Year Award, Entertainer of the Year Award, Album of the Year Award and Best Video of the Year Award.
