When Free Time Turns into Performance of a Lifetime

Rhonda Vincent and Merle HaggardThe following is an open letter by Rhonda Vincent...
"On Tuesday, January 27, 2015, Rhonda Vincent & The Rage performed two sold out shows in Naples, Florida. We were expecting to travel after the show to Key West, Florida and record in Jimmy Buffett's Recording Studio. After the show, we discovered it is illegal to park a bus of any kind in Key West, Florida. I called the campgrounds, and they were sold out of spaces till March, so our trip was cancelled. I began browsing Facebook, as I do each night before going to sleep. I noticed a friend had checked-in to see Merle Haggard, so I quickly looked up Merle's schedule, and found he was performing on Wednesday in The Villages, Florida.
