I went to see Barbara Mandrell in concer back in 1982. Guess who took me? My sister Donna. Some of you know her from D's and Others. I was just in 8th grade. It was my first concert. I love Barbara's music. I was pretty much the same thing. Everybody I knew in school didn't like country music, but I did. I am so glad that I stick with my roots. Due to my hearing, I really couldn't understand the lyrics in rock-n-roll. Even heavy metal too. UGH!
I used to stay home and watch the Dukes of Hazzard on CBS, Friday night and Barbara Mandrell and the Mandrell Sisters were on Saturday on NBS. She was also pretty much the last singing variety show on tv, next to Hee Haw.
