Rhonda Vincent And The Rage

Friday, April 05
Doors: 6pm Show: 7pm
$35 to $89.99

Rhonda Vincent is a firecracker of talent that powers one of the hottest bands in any 
genre of music today. From humble beginnings in the tiny town of Greentop, Missouri,
Rhonda’s musical heritage traces back 5 generations of the Vincent family. Her dad 
would pick her up from school each day, and they would sing and play till dinner. After 
dinner, friends came over, and they would sing and play till bedtime. She began her 
professional music career singing in her family’s band The Sally Mountain Show. It was 
an immediate “on the job training,” as they had a TV show, radio show, and made their 
first recording when Rhonda was 5 years old. She picked up the mandolin at eight, the 
fiddle at twelve, and learned a valuable life lesson as a teenager performing with her 
family at Silver Dollar City in Branson, Missouri. While they were playing in the pouring 
rain to empty seats, and what they thought, no one listening — a week later they 
received a call from Hal Durham, general manager of the Grand Ole Opry at the time, 
and who just happened to be listening with his family around the corner. Mr. Durham 
loved what he heard and invited the Vincent family to appear on the Opry. 
Rhonda’s life of music evolved into a successful career in bluegrass music; after being 
discovered by Grand Ole Opry Star “Jim Ed Brown,” and later spending what she calls 
her musical college years recording for Giant Records; and learning about the music 
business from Nashville’s best like James Stroud, Jack McFadden, and Stan Barnett. 
It was her pivotal bluegrass album “Back Home Again” that transformed Rhonda 
Vincent into the All American Bluegrass Girl, and crowned the New Queen of Bluegrass 
by “The Wall Street Journal” in 2000. 
A multi-award winner, with a 2017 Grammy for Best Bluegrass Album, an Entertainer of 
the Year 2001, Song of the Year 2004, and unprecedented 7 consecutive Female 
Vocalist of the Year awards from the International Bluegrass Music Association 2000 –
2006 and an 8th win of IBMA Female Vocalist of the Year in 2015.
Her lifelong dream came true when she was invited to be a member of the Grand Ole 
Opry on February 28, 2020. Rhonda waited an unprecedented 345 days and was 
officially inducted as a member of the Grand Ole Opry on February 6, 2021.
Her powerful vocal style transcends the boundaries of bluegrass music, as evidenced in 
her collaboration with Dolly Parton on the Elton John / Bernie Taupin Tribute Project 
“Restoration” 2018.

Vincent's musical career began when she was a child in her family's band The Sally Mountain Show, and has spanned more than four decades. Vincent first achieved success in the bluegrass genre in the 1970s and '80s, earning the respect of her mostly male peers for her mastery of the progressive chord structures and multi-range, fast-paced vocals intrinsic to bluegrass music.
