Second Radio Single Barbara Mandrell Tribute SongPlease Call Your Local Radio Stations To Request
In honor of Barbara Mandrell and her 50th Opry Anniversary Celebration! To add to the festivities and the showing of appreciation and Love for this wonderful Lady. Marie released her tribute song to Barbara titled Hard Act To Follow as her second single from the album Perfume&Diesel. It’s available on radio stations and all digital platforms for your listening pleasure!
Marie has been saddened to learn that Barbara basically is unknown to most of today’s generation and more so even her very own is unaware for the most part of who Barbara is. It seems she’s slipped through the cracks and has kind of been placed in a corner to be forgotten.
After all of her accomplishments and accolades in the Country Music Industry, She Most Definitely was a pioneer for women and their being able to have more control of their career’s and even that of being a Headliner for shows across the country and selling out those shows. People seem to forget about the Blockbuster Broadway Style Performances that she basically adapted to her shows before anyone else was doing them, and not to mention the Enormously successful Variety show that she had on NBC from 1980 to 1982 which only ended due to her all around health. It seems that due to ignorance and some misunderstandings that she was blackballed in Nashville after her car accident in 1984. It caused a lot of confusion and physical and mental anguish. Some even believe that after this occurred that her success was doomed and that is agreeable due to the fact that she never really reached the hight of success that she once had, really not even close, but her desires changed as did her priority’s. That’s still no reason to remove such a cornerstone from the most important parts of the industry so that others may get to know them, we shouldn’t shun such intricate pillars for something that’s completely out of their control. So in the hopes of introducing Barbara to another Generation and many more to come hopefully. Please call your local radio stations to request this song and keep it out there for the world, maybe even Barbara to Hear! To The One Who’s Still Entertainer Of The Year Every Year, Because No One Else Is Better! She’s Simply The Best and to Quote the Song: “Barbara You’re A Hard Act To Follow!”

New Single Coming in March, Then a whole new album by the End of the year! So stay tuned for release dates!
