Singer Mandy Barnett discusses her latest studio album "I Can't Stop Loving You: The Songs of Don Gibson," which is available exclusively at Cracker Barrel Old Country Store and Cracker Barrel's official website.
She collaborated with 27-time Grammy winner Alison Krauss on the single on "Blue Blue Day," which she noted was a "magical" feeling. "I had worked with her on my very first album; Alison sang harmony on my track 'Now That's Alright With Me.' I'm thrilled that I got to record with her again. I've been a fan of hers for a long time," she said.
On the album's song selection process, she remarked, "I wanted to include the iconic songs everyone knows like 'I Can't Stop Loving You,' 'Sweet Dreams,' and 'Oh Lonesome Me,' and then I hand-picked a few that I loved, and that Don loved, that maybe aren't as well known, but are incredible songs that fit my voice."
She continued, "This album was a labor of love and fulfilled a promise I made to a man I admired tremendously. Don was a great friend and an amazing artist and songwriter. I hope you love the album as much as I loved making it."
Barnett selected her single "Blue Blue Day" as her personal favorite track on the CD. "It was a surprise to see how it unfolded from Don's original uptempo version to a ballad. Alison Krauss' harmonies are beautiful and Charlie McCoy's harmonica is the icing on the cake. I'm so proud of how this track turned out," she said.
Regarding her plans for the future, she shared, "I want to keep recording and touring, and I'm interested in exploring musical collaborations. I have two duets with Ronnie Milsap on his new Summer Number Seventeen album that will be released this month. They show a different side of me and were great fun to do."
