The IBMA (International Bluegrass Music Association) and SPBGMA (Society for Preservation of Bluegrass Music in America) have their hands full with Ms. Bluegrass herself, Rhonda Vincent. Here we are thirty four years since Vincent received her first award from the SPBGMA for Best Single Recording for “Muleskinner Blues”, and not only is Vincent still kicking, but she’s on top of the world with her 2008 album, “Good Thing Going” debuting at number one on Billboard’s Bluegrass charts.
“I am thrilled!” said Rhonda Vincent. “It is particularly gratifying since I co-wrote five songs on this album. That makes it even more special to me.”
Rhonda Vincent may have received multiple awards for her ability to wow people with anything with strings, but nothing may have been as rewarding as her accomplishment of “Good Thing Going,” which very well may be her most challenging and personal album yet. Vincent is known for her sweet sounding vocals, fiery mandolin picking, and her massive touring schedules.
Rhonda will be kicking off her “Good Thing Going” tour on January 18th. For the complete touring schedule, go to www.rhondavincent.com or www.rounder.com.
