ENVY SUNGLASSES by Dakota

Store Price: $69.99
DEAL PRICE: $2.99

The name says it all... You'll be the envy of everyone with
These high-quality Dakota Sunglasses simply named... ENVY.

And our competitors are downright envious of the price we
are offering to GopherCentral readers... How can we do it?
We work closely with the manufacturer and sometimes they
have an overrun in production. We made a promise that we
would take ALL the over-runs... no matter how big or small
and we would pass the savings onto our readers!

Grab a pair or two while the supplies last. Once they are
gone... they are gone. To see a picture, get more info or

TRIVIA: While growing up, she was taught the steel guitar and 
many other instruments, including the accordion, saxophone and 
banjo. She even played steel guitar for the legendary Patsy Cline. 
Cline once wrote to a friend in a letter that Mandrell was "a 13 
year old blonde doll that plays the steel guitar out of this world! 
What a show woman!" 

Was involved in major automobile accident with two of her children 
in 1984. It wasn't until her autobiography, Get to the Heart: My 
Story, was published in 1990 that fans found out how critical 
Barbara's condition was after her September 11, 1984, automobile 
accident. Barbara suffered a severe head injury (she was n intensive 
care for several days), a broken right leg, a broken right ankle, 
damaged right knee and various cuts and bruises. It took her 18 
months to fully recover.

Barbara was the first artist to win the CMA Entertainer Of The 
Year for two consecutive years.

Her 1990 autobiography Get To The Heart: My Story appeared on the 
New York Times Best Seller List after only four days, and then 
remained there for six months.


WHERE IS SHE NOW: In 1998 Barbara retired from singing/performing 
to concentrate on an acting career.

In 2002 Barbara had an estate sale, auctioning her beloved 137-acre 
home (Fontanel), located near Downtown Nashville, for $2.1 million 
and selling a lot of her personal belongings. She, husband, Ken 
Dudney, and their third child, Nathaniel, moved from the 27,000-
square-foot estate to a 7,000-square-foot one located outside 
Nashville, Tennessee.

Was presented with a star on the Music City Walk of Fame on 
November 5, 2007.

She will appear on GAC's tribute to Porter Wagoner on Wednesday, 
January 2nd.
