“New Queen of Bluegrass” Returning to Stuart’s< < Back to
This Sunday, Stuart’s Opera House is hosting a special bluegrass matinee with the award-winning Rhonda Vincent & The Rage at 3 p.m.
Vincent, who has performed at Stuart’s numerous times, has a career that spans 24 albums and has worked with a number of country legends, including Dolly Parton and George Jones.
She has received more than 40 awards, including an unprecedented seven consecutive Female Vocalist of the Year awards from the International Bluegrass Music Association, along with multiple Grammy nominations. If you include her band The Rage, they become the most awarded band in Bluegrass music with over 100 awards.
Dubbed “The New Queen of Bluegrass” by the Wall Street Journal, Vincent began her musical journey at the age of three, performing alongside her family members on what was called The Sally Mountain Show. She sang bluegrass as a teenager, then recorded a couple of mainstream country albums in the 1990s, only to be asked if she could “get the bluegrass out of her voice.”
She then put together her first bluegrass band, and found the most natural approach to her music was in the bluegrass realm. In addition, Vincent has also performed and recorded with Dolly Parton, Willie Nelson, Keith Urban, Alan Jackson, Faith Hill, Martina McBride, Daryle Singletary, Richard Marx, Hank Williams, Jr. and more. While being a 15-time “Entertainer of the Year,” Vincent has established herself as one of the most visible, best-selling artists in the genre, whose crossover appeal stretches well into the mainstream media.
