 I Can't Stop Loving You - The Songs of Don GibsonCracker Barrel Old Country Store® and Mandy Barnett announce the release of I Can’t Stop Loving You: The Songs of Don Gibson, Barnett’s newest CD, which will be available on November 11 at all Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® locations, online at www.crackerbarrel.com and select digital retailers. The release, produced by Barnett, features 12 songs written by Country Music Hall of Fame inductee Don Gibson. The album’s debut coincides with the 10th anniversary of Gibson’s death on November 17, 2003, and fulfills a promise that Barnett made to the legendary singer/songwriter.

“Don, his wife Bobbi, and I became good friends a few years before he passed away,” said Barnett. “He asked me to consider recording an album of his songs, and of course I said yes. He wrote some of the most-loved songs in country music -- who wouldn’t want to record a Don Gibson song? Well, it may have taken more than a decade, but thanks to Cracker Barrel Old Country Store®, I have fulfilled my promise to Don and I could not be more excited. I had a great experience with Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® when they released my Winter Wonderland album in 2010, and I’m happy to be working with them again.”

“Mandy Barnett is an amazing vocalist,” said Cracker Barrel Old Country Store Marketing Manager Julie Craig. “Pairing her talent with the songs of the legendary Don Gibson has created an album that we hope will become a classic.”

Gibson, who was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1973 and the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2001, was a very popular and highly influential country music singer/songwriter in the 1950s and 1960s. As an artist, he charted more than 20 Top 10 hits and released nearly 40 albums between 1958 and 1978 and was a member of the Grand Ole Opry. As a songwriter, he wrote songs that have become timeless classics and have been recorded by a multitude of artists in a variety of music genres. Gibson considered himself a songwriter who sang, rather than a singer who wrote songs.
