She followed the success of “The Teddy Bear Song” with “Kid Stuff,” which charted as high as #2, and another Top 10 hit in 1974, “Baby Doll.”

“Barbara’s shows are entertaining and family-friendly at the same time,” said Tracy Straight, the executive director of the Wayne Theatre. “The combination of Barbara Fairchild and Glen Shelton should make for a memorable night at the Shenandoah Jamboree.”
