Barbara Mandrell was raised the eldest daughter in a musical family by Irby and Mary Mandrell, thus, her professional career began while she was still in her teens. She started performing with such artists as Patsy Cline, Johnny Cash, Joe Maphis, and several others, which gave her the needed experience to start on her own. However, before she decided to go solo, she played with her family band that consisted of her sisters Irlene and Louise, and her parents, and the band’s drummer, Ken Dudney, who later became her husband.

Before the 1970 s, Barbara signed a contract with Columbia records, with a little help from her father, who was her manager at the time, and her solo career was about to begin. Her first album was released in 1971, entitled “Treat Him Right”, spawning hits like “I`ve Been Loving You For Too Long (To Stop Now)”, “Do Right Woman, Do Right Man”, and “Treat Him Right”, all of which increased her popularity and her net worth. In the following years, her career went only upwards, and so did her net worth, releasing several albums until the end of the 1970s, which entered the charts in the top 10, such as “Midnight Oil” (1973), “Moods” (1978), and “Just For The Record” (1979).

She continued to line up success after success in the 1980s, releasing such albums as “Love Is Fair” (1980), “…In Black And White” (1982), “Spun Gold” (1983), “Clean Cut” (1984), and “Sure Feels Good” (1987). The albums spawned several No. 1 hits, such as “I Was Country, When Country Wasn’t Cool”, “`Til You Are Gone”, “One Of A Kind Pair Of Fools”, “Only A Lonely Heart Knows”, and “I Wish That I Could Fall In Love Today”, among many others, all of which added to her net worth.

Before the end of the 1980s, her career started to decline, which continued throughout the 1990s; she released several albums, which failed to even chart, however, they still added somewhat to her net worth. Some of the albums include “No Nonsense” (1992), “Key’s In The Mailbox”, and her last studio release “It Works For Me” (1997).

Apart from her successful career as a singer, Barbara has also been recognized as an actress, which added to her net worth, beginning as a star in the family show “Barbara Mandrell And The Mandrell Sisters” which was aired on NBC from 1980 until 1982. Barbara then featured in the TV series “Sunset Beach” (1997-1998), “Touched By An Angel” (1996-1998), “Walker, Texas Ranger” (2000), and films “The Wrong Girl” (1999), and “Stolen From The Heart” (2000), which was her last role before she retired from show business.

During her successful career, Barbara won numerous prestigious awards and recognitions, including induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, Artist Guild and Musicians Hall of Fame and Museum.

If to talk about her personal life, Barbara Mandrell has been married to Ken Dudney since 1967 and they have three children.
