American musician, the fiddle and bass playing member of the Mandrell sisters. She joined Barbara's Do-Rite group at 15 and toured for six years. During the '70s she became part of a troupe headed by Opry star Stu Phillips, and she sang both lead and back-up with Merle Haggard.
A veteran of live gigs and recordings, she signed as a solo singer with Epic. They signed R.C. Bannon at the same time; the two artists married in 1979. Working together, their first major hit was "Put It On Me," 1978; the following year their careers took off with five top singles. In 1981 they signed with TCA where they made an immediate impression, leading to a major star position by 1983, a big year.
