Rhonda Vincent set
to release new album
Country and bluegrass singer Rhonda Vincent, who is coming to Penn's Peak on March 22, will soon release a new album.
The album, "Only Me," is set for release on Jan. 28.
It's one of Vincent's finest productions with two CDs, one with bluegrass tunes and the other with country songs.
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 is Vincent's first stop at Penn's Peak.
And, speaking of Vincent, Rhonda Vincent & The Rage, the most awarded band in bluegrass, could be adding more awards to their prestigious list of honors as they have been nominated for 6 SPBGMA awards.Phil Vassar performs
