Louise Mandrell's talent, personality and boundless energy have already won her a legion of fans, unparalleled reviews, a string of hit records, a best-selling book, numerous commercial endorsements, her own nationally syndicated television special and a spectacular stage show "Love My Country" which she wrote, produced and performed in Opryland's Acuff Theatre. By any standards, Louise Mandrell is one of the hottest tickets of the entertainment set.

Louise's dynamite road show, coupled with the overwhelming success of her "Love My Country" production led to her co-hosting the extravagant show at the Grand Palace Theatre in Branson, MO with television and recording star Glen Campbell. Louise will move to Pigeon Forge, TN in September where she will open The Louise Mandrell Theater on September 12, 1997. Located next to the Music Mansion in Dollywood and the Alabama Grill, Louise will be performing daily with a special Christmas Show in November and December.

Born in Corpus Christi, TX on July 13, Louis was a junior in high school when she became sister Barbara's first full-time bass guitar player as one of the original "Do-Rite" band members. Before her sixteenth birthday, she had worked every major city in the United States and Canada, and in clubs and on military bases all over Europe. While still a teenager, she became a fixture on the Grand Ole Opry with the Stu Phillips Show. She both toured and recorded with entertainment legend, Merle Haggard. When barely out of her teens, she had become a well-respected Music City instrumentalist. Louise leaped into the national spotlight in the fall of 1980 as one of the talented siblings on the NBC television show, "Barbara Mandrell and the Mandrell Sisters". In the nation's eyes, Louise became somewhat of an "overnight sensation".

Louise's ability to relate to and reach her audience is one of her greatest attributes. When Louise walks out on a stage, she literally owns it! She combines bluegrass traditions with pure country harmonies. She incorporates Broadway-perfect dance steps with an unsurpassed fluency on several musical instruments for one of the most energetic and entertaining shows anywhere. She has both dazzled and electrified audiences from the main showrooms of Las Vegas to the heartlands of the "Bible-Belt". Louise is accompanied by a dozen of the most talented singers and dancers in the business, a group appropriately called "Spellbound". They are mesmerizing all by themselves. Add Louise to their mix and the combined energy literally explodes under the spotlights.

Louise has had an equally successful impact on the recording industry with such RCA hits as Some Of My Best Friends Are Old Songs, Save Me, Too Hot To Sleep, Maybe My Baby, I'm Not Through Loving You Yet, I Wanna Say Yes and her hit duet with Eric Carmen As Long As We've Got Each Other. Her six solo albums on RCA garnered both impressive sales and reviews. Her singles and albums highlight the wide range and variety of her vocal talents.

Few entertainers seem to be as comfortable with television as Louise. She is constantly in demand for guest appearances. Her television credits include every major country music show, including her own two-hour, star-studded special "Louise Mandrell: Diamonds, Gold, and Platinum". She has appeared on the successful series "Barbara Mandrell and the Mandrell Sisters", the daytime soap "Another World", "The Tonight Show", "The Richard Simmons Show", "Austin City Limits", "Solid Gold", "Hee Haw", and several CBS series' shows, "Crazy Like A Fox", "The New Mike Hammer" and the popular "Home Show". Louise has performed on numerous nationally televised telethons and co-hosted with the late, great Sammy Davis, Jr. on a syndicated television special "Battle of the Bands". Louise counts this as the a highlight in her career.

In pursuit of her writing skills, her first book, THE MANDRELL FAMILY ALBUM, an autobiography was published by Thomas Nelson in July of 1983. It became an immediate "Best Seller" and was released in paperback in July of 1984. She has written a series of children's books, the Holiday Adventure Series, which she originated for her own daughter, Nicole, and developed with co-writer Ace Collins. The sixteen book series, published by Summit Publishers of Ft. Worth, TX explains America's most important holidays.

"I'm hooked. I just love to shoot", she says with enthusiasm when asked about her proficiency at shooting trap, skeet, and sporting clays. She also enjoys interior decorating, is a fashion enthusiast and a hopeless shopaholic. She has a fully-equipped exercise room in her home where she enjoys weight-lifting and aerobics, which becomes evident after seeing her very physical, high-energy stage performance. She loves snow skiing, playing cards and almost any type of athletic competition. This middle Mandrell is a natural born competitor who plays even the most simple games to win.

Perhaps it is her winning attitude that creates the drive to be the best. Most entertainers give performances that showcase their talents. Louise Mandrell does not leave the stage until she has given you her heart.
