| The eldest daughter of the musical family, Barbara Mandrell was already reading music and playing accordion when her sisters were infants. She had become so adept at playing steel guitar that her father took her to a music trade convention in Chicago. While there, her talents caught the attention of RCA Records producer and session musician Chet Atkins and popular musician and bandleader Joe Maphis. Soon after, she became a featured performer in Maphis' Las Vegas nightclub show, followed by tours with Red Foley, Tex Ritter, and Johnny Cash.

Her network TV debut came on the NBC-TV series Five Star Jubilee in 1961.
Mandrell has won two Grammys, seven AMAs, four Academy of Country Music Awards, and four Country Music Association Awards. She was the first performer to win the Country Music Association Award for Entertainer of the Year twice (1980, 1981), having also won the Academy of Country Music Award for Entertainer of the Year in 1980.
