Barbara Mandrell Joins The Statler Brothers
Born on Christmas day in 1948, Barbara Mandrell is no stranger to Christian influence. She recorded multiple Christian-inspired songs for her gospel albums ‘Precious Memories‘ which was released in 1989, as well as ‘He Set My Life to Music‘ which came out in 1982.
The Statler Brothers originally performed songs as a gospel quartet for the entertainment of local churches. The group rose to popularity through the sixties, working as openers and background vocalists for Johnny Cash for 9 years.
After breaking off from Cash and working on their own, the group released a grand total of 40 albums and earned many number one spots on American hits charts.
“For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.” Ephesians 2:8-9
