Rhonda Vincent & The Rage
Five-time Grammy nominee Rhonda Vincent, the New Queen of Bluegrass as deemed by the Wall Street Journal, is clearing the lane for her upcoming 2-Disc combination release that includes six-songs each of Bluegrass and Country. The project, appropriately titled Only Me, serves as a reminder why Rhonda Vincent & The Rage is the most awarded band in bluegrass music. Only Me will be released on Upper Management Music, and available where all music is sold on January 28, 2014.

Sticking with her musical roots, Rhonda is joined by Daryle Singletary on “We Must Have Been Out of Our Minds,” while Willie Nelson adds vocals and a guitar solo to the title track.

“The Bluegrass pickers on this song are some of the best that I have ever heard. When I think of Bluegrass, this is the sound that I hear,” says Willie Nelson. “Rhonda’s voice is beautiful. I am thankful for her letting me be a part of it all.”

This project answers the question of whether Rhonda’s voice is bluegrass or country; by confirming, “it’s in the perception of the listener.” Titled Only Me to further make the statement that either way, bluegrass or country, it’s Rhonda!
