Mandy Barnett will perform songs from and discuss her new album, I Can't Stop Loving You:The Songs of Don Gibson. Before Gibson's death in 2003, Barnett became good friends with the Country Music Hall of Fame member, who asked her to consider recording an album of his songs. A decade later, she has fulfilled her promise to Gibson, recording "Oh Lonesome Me," "Sweet Dreams," "I Can't Stop Lovin' You," and other classics, backed by some of the legendary musicians who appeared on the originals. Barnett will also discuss her experiences portraying Patsy Cline in the production Always ...Patsy Cline, and her work with producer Owen Bradley. Selections from her 2010 Christmas release, Winter Wonderland, will also be featured.
