Mandy Barnett: “Who (Who Will It Be)” (1999)

Just as young singers are periodically labeled as the “Next Dylan” or the “New Norah”, we’ve seen a succession of women tagged the “Next Patsy Cline”. Sometimes the hype can help launch a successful career (LeAnn Rimes) and sometimes it can yoke a young artist with tremendous expectation, or make someone with talent of their own seem more like a novelty act or mere impersonator.

As for Mandy Barnett, she’s somewhat less than a household name as a singer in her own right. But she has held the title role in a musical based on the life of…Patsy Cline.

      Yeah. She seems to have disappeared lately. I’d like to hear more from her.

      Oh, just by coincidence I received her Christmas CD in the mail today! I’m hopeful that it’s as good as I think, but probly won’t listen to it any time soon…80 degree weather kinda dulls the “Winter Wonderland” spirit.
