Vocalist and stage performer Mandy Barnett is set to release her stunning new album Sweet Dreams on May 24th on the Opry Music imprint. The highly anticipated album launch occurs in conjunction with her leading role return to Nashville's historic Ryman Auditorium stage in the musical production Always…Patsy Cline.
Sweet Dreams provides Barnett with an opportunity to honor not only beloved music icon Patsy Cline, but also the songs she made famous and the songwriters who crafted the timeless tunes. The album includes Cline's well-known signature hits such as "Crazy," "I Fall To Pieces," and "Faded Love." Barnett leaves her unique and powerful vocal stamp on these songs and others, like the Irving Berlin standard "Always" and "Strange." The project, produced by Steve Gibson, features many of Nashville's most talented studio musicians. This year also marks the 50th anniversary of Patsy Cline's hit "Crazy," which was written by Willie Nelson.
Barnett will sing many of the songs from Sweet Dreams when she returns to her role as Patsy Cline in the bio-musical Always…Pasty Cline, which will run Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays June 17th through July 24th at the Ryman Auditorium. Always ... Patsy Cline features more than 20 of Cline's most memorable numbers including "I Fall to Pieces," "Crazy," "Blue Moon of Kentucky," and "Sweet Dreams," which became a hit shortly after her death.
