The 'new Queen of Bluegrass' Rhonda Vincent visits In The Country to talk about her latest CD entitled "Taken". With over seventy awards to their name, Rhonda Vincent and The Rage (her longtime backing band) are the most celebrated band in bluegrass, with honors including a coveted Entertainer of the Year award from the International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) and a staggering seven consecutive IBMA Female Vocalist of the Year awards. Special guests on this album include Dolly Parton & Richard Marx. “I don’t bring in guests just to bring in guests,” Rhonda explains. “It has to be something that makes sense musically. Like, when were doing vocals for ‘In the Garden by the Fountain,’ I could just hear Dolly Parton singing the high harmony in my head, so I called her, and luckily her schedule worked out.” Despite all that she has achieved, Rhonda is still seeking new challenges. For this new album, she reasserts herself as an instrumentalist, playing all of the mandolin on the album.
