NEW MUSIC by Rhonda Vincent  – Available NOW!

NASHVILLE, TENN. (May 24, 2016)  –  “The New Queen of Bluegrass”
Rhonda Vincent is pleased to announce her new single, “Mama Tried,”
released in tribute to the late great Merle Haggard. Rhonda presents the
song with invigorating bluegrass instrumentation, and a sassy vocal,
with a familiarity that has everyone singing along. The track is
released via Upper Management Music and available NOW on iTunes and wherever music is sold. 

“The song was selected
to perform on an upcoming Merle Haggard Tribute on RFD-TV’s ‘Country’s
Family Reunion.’  When I started singing it at our sound checks, we were
instantly intrigued with the bluegrass version, and with only a 24 hour
notice, we secured a studio and recorded the song, with the intention
of releasing it on Merle Haggard’s birthday,” says Rhonda Vincent. “We
were shocked at the news of his passing, and release it now in his
honor.  We loved Merle and were so thrilled to meet and open a show with
him on January 28, 2015.  That was such a special moment, and one we
will always cherish.”  
Listen close, because
this new version features a rare performance by legendary bluegrass
favorite Sonny Osborne singing harmony vocals, creating a family blend
with Rhonda’s daughter Sally Berry.  This classic song has been a
favorite of country radio for nearly 48 years, since the original hit
No. 1 on the Billboard Country chart in 1968. It also received the
Grammy Hall of Fame Award in 1999, and most recently was added to the
National Recording Registry in 2016.
Radio DJ’s can download the track right now on AirPlay Direct.
