This blonde beauty’s 1978 single “Sleeping Single in a Double Bed,” debuted at number one on the Billboard Chart. Shortly after, she came out with her second hit “if loving you is wrong I don’t want to be right.” The singer’s popularity amongst the public attracted producers’ attention. They wanted Barbara to have her own show. The show came out, called “Barbara Mandrell and the Mandrell Sisters.” The series followed the country singer and her sisters, Louise and Irene. The show wasn’t so successful and ran for only two series.
The sisters aren’t seen together much anymore but did join forces to host the Unleashed fundraiser for the Nashville Humane Association.
