I have been a big fan of Barbara Mandrell for many years. This was a great tour to see the beautiful home that she lived in and her children grew up in. The guide was wonderful, very knowledgeable, and happily answered any questions asked. Barbara's daughter actually works there at the mansion.
The only negative I found was there was WAY too many pictures and too much memorabilia from other artists that I had no interest in. I would have liked to see more pictures of Barbara and her family when they actually lived in the house, showing them in various rooms there. I couldn't care less how many awards Big and Rich have won, or seeing Gretchen Wilson's guitar. There was just too much promotion of other low-profile artists that can't even begin to touch the status that Barbara once had.
I wish I had been able to see some of Barbara's instruments and maybe some things from the variety show she had with her sisters.
All in all, it was a beautiful home. Just too much filler, and not enough Barbara.
