She Was Country When Country Wasn’t Cool: A Tribute to Barbara Mandrell

bm_country200.jpg

With Barbara herself resolutely retired, this tribute album offers a chance to take stock of her music’s durability and the reach of her influence despite her absence— and both are proved potent. Barbara wrote none of the hits reprised here, but her personality is stamped on every one. The stars on hand, including Brad Paisley, Dierks Bentley, Reba McEntire, Gretchen Wilson, Sara Evans, LeAnn Rimes and others, demonstrate that the heart and soul Barbara built in to her brand of R & B-laced country-pop still survives.
