What is barbara mandrell doing these days since she retired from singing
Today Barbara Mandrell is active at church, continues to spend her time with family and friends and has slowly recovered from an intense fear of driving to live a normal life.
She surprised fans when she made an impromptu appearance at The Opry on May 18, 2013, waving and taking a bow. She was also seen on the red carpet prior to the screening of INSPIRATION POP 2929 in Nashville, TN on May 7, 2013, looking gorgeous with her sisters. It is generally known that she does not perform any longer.
After the induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2009, she will make a rare appearance at The Tribute to George Jones Nashville concert, to be held on Friday, November 22, 2013, at the Bridgestone Arena. This is to celebrate the late George Jones’ 50th year career in the industry.
Of interest, Christy Sutherland (Award winning singer/songwriter, Daughter in law of Barbara Mandrell) made her acting debut for the film Inspiration Pop 2929 which received a star-studded music city welcome as the film premiered at a special invitation-only, VIP screening last May 7, 2013 in Nashville, TN.
