She is the only female in country music history to win the Country Music Association's "Entertainer of the Year" award twice, and (was the first entertainer ever to win the award twice) she has also won the Country Music Association's "Female Vocalist of the Year" twice. The list goes on and on. A true legend of the entertainment world.

Tune in to Volunteer Gardener on NPT-Channel 8 on Thursday, July 30 at 7:30 p.m. and watch both gardening and music create their own kind of harmony in this special episode featuring Mandrell and host Troy Marden. The show re-airs on Sunday, August 2 at 9:30 a.m. Volunteer Gardener also airs across Tennessee on select PBS stations including Knoxville, Chattanooga, Memphis, Martin and Cookeville (check local listings for show times).
“I feel truly blessed to be part of the Nashville Music Garden,” explains Mandrell. “The garden will both add to the beautification of Music City as well honor Nashville’s best!”
An avid gardener herself, the Nashville Music Garden has been Mandrell’s passion project for over three years.
“It is so wonderful to see all of this hard work come into bloom,” says Mandrell.
Mandrell is also a fan of “Volunteer Gardener,” enjoying the different gardens the show travels to, and the various advice from guests and hosts. As she told Marden, “I love this show.”
The public is invited to attend the dedication for the garden on Tuesday, September 29 at 10:30 a.m. Mandrell will serve as host for what is sure to be a star-studded event. For more information, visit nashvillemusicgarde n.com.
