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.

Rhonda VincentThis Wednesday March 12th, at Music City Roots - Live from Loveless Cafe Barn, the featured artists will include Rhonda Vincent & The Rage, Wild Ponies, Cabinet, Don duprie and Teea Goans. The program is hosted by Jim Lauderdale. The last time Rhonda Vincent played Roots, it was on her run of duo shows with the mighty-voiced legend Gene Watson. It was great. Soaring and blue. Deeply country. But it did leave me craving a set of her audaciously clear and powerful bluegrass music. She is, after all, a seven-time IBMA Female Vocalist of the Year and one of the most beloved artists in the world of classic bluegrass. But this Wednesday, after years of waiting, we'll feature Rhonda and her band The Rage amid a diverse night at Roots. The season is winding down, but there's nothing wound down about Vincent's approach to roots music.
