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.
