Rhonda Vincent Nominated for Grammy Award

Number One Smash Album ‘Only Me’, Nominated for Bluegrass Album of the Year
 

Nashville,
Tenn. (December 8, 2014) – The nominations for the upcoming 57th Annual
Grammy Awards have been announced, and Rhonda Vincent is nominated for Bluegrass Album of the Year. Her 2014 release Only Me was
received with high critical acclaim following its release, and now
serves as a final contender for the highest prize in the music industry –
garnering Vincent her sixth Grammy nomination. After debuting at #1,
where it spent its first two weeks on the chart, the album has proved to
have legs. Only Me continues the long line of history-making
success that Vincent has enjoyed. Each of her past eight discs hit
either No. 1 or No. 2 on the Billboard Bluegrass Album chart.

The half country/half bluegrass album features duets with both Willie
Nelson and Daryle Singletary. Vincent reached #1 on the Bluegrass
Unlimited National airplay chart for the months of November and December
with her songs “Busy City” and the Willie Nelson duet title-track “Only
Me.” Vincent also tips the covers hat to acts such as George Jones
& Melba Montgomery (“We Must Have Been Out Of Our Minds”), Jack
Greene (“I Need Somebody Bad”), Connie Smith (“Once A Day”), and Bill
Anderson (“Bright Lights and Country Music”)

Only Me contains the cream of the crop of musicians –
including her Rage band members Hunter Berry (fiddle), Brent Burke
(dobro), Mickey Harris (upright bass), Aaron McDaris (banjo), and Josh
Williams (acoustic guitar). Guest musicians include Tim Crouch, Kevin
Grantt, Catherine Marx, James Mitchell, Michael Rojas, Lonnie Wilson,
Grammy-winning musician and producer Carl Jackson, and ACM Steel Player
of the Year Mike Johnson. In addition to the afore-mentioned
performances from Nelson and Singletary, the disc also includes guest
vocal appearances from Gene Johnson and Dana Williams of Diamond Rio.

Rhonda Vincent has been one of the most consistent recording artists
in the world of Bluegrass Music, winning the IBMA Female Vocalist of the
Year award a remarkable seven consecutive times, and walked away with
the top honor of IBMA Entertainer of the Year in 2001. With her band,
The Rage – they are the Most Award Winning Band in Bluegrass Music
History with over 80 awards. They maintain one of the busiest schedules
in the music business today, recently hitting a personal record number
of bookings for 2015.

The 57th Annual Grammy Awards are set to take place on February 8,
2015 in Los Angeles at the Staples Center. You can learn more about the
