As a teenager, Barnett held the title role in the musical, “Always…Patsy Cline,” which she performed at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tenn., and received rave reviews from sold out audiences. She credits Patsy Cline as one of her greatest influences. In 2009, she reprised her role as Patsy Cline for a special 15-year anniversary performance and continues to play shows, both nationally and internationally, singing great country classics and Patsy Cline numbers. She is a frequent guest on the Grand Old Opry.
