But now I'm found

Barbara Mandrell, who was born on Christmas day, 1948, is no stranger to Christian influence, releasing multiple Christian-inspired songs in her gospel albums ‘Precious Memories‘ which was released in 1989, as well as ‘He Set My Life to Music‘ which came out in 1982.
Originally performing songs as a gospel quartet for the entertainment of local churches, the Statler Brothers rose to popularity through the sixties, working as openers and background vocalists for Johnny Cash for 9 years. After breaking off from Cash and working on their own, the group released a grand total of 40 albums and earned many number one spots on American hits charts.
