Rhonda Vincent & The Rage are one of the hottest tickets in any genre of music! Don't miss the opportunity to experience the excitement and feel the energy that have led them to become the most award-winning band in bluegrass music history, with over 100 awards.

Vincent takes the stage in designer gowns and stiletto heels, in a take-charge manner, breaking the stereotypical image that Hollywood has portrayed as the image of acoustic music. When you see the artist live, it is easy to see why the Wall Street Journal deemed her The Queen of Bluegrass.

The Queen of Bluegrass has recently collaborated with The Queen of Country, Dolly Parton. In 2018, Vincent was involved in multiple recording projects with Parton. After finishing a collaborative bluegrass take on "Please", an Elton John-Bernie Taupin pop song; Vincent, Parton, and Alison Krauss combined forces for a song called "If We Don't," that is featured in "Dumplin'," the recently-released Netflix original film.

The soundtrack features many well-known artists, but it was Parton who insisted Vincent be involved. In a December 2018 interview with Entertainment Weekly, Parton said, "When they started bringing all these other artists in I said, "Well, I can't be having all these other girls in and not have my two favorites in Nashville, Rhonda Vincent and Alison Krauss, sing on one of the more country songs."

Vincent has also collaborated with several other artists during her career including Jim Ed Brown, Richard Marx, Little Roy Lewis, Gene Watson, Richard Lynch, Daryle Singletary and Dailey & Vincent.

In concert, the voice of Rhonda Vincent is the centerpiece, surrounded by the rhythms of each instrument; featuring the individual styles of the world class musicians that collectively make up The Rage. Their talent is unmatched: each and every member can sing every part, and play every instrument. Their depth of skill sets the stage for the highest level of professionalism.

The Rage includes Hunter Berry who plays the fiddle; Brent Brook on the dobro; vocalist and musician Mickey Harris; Aaron McDaris who plays the banjo; and Josh Williams, a vocalist and guitarist. Vincent's daughter Sally Berry will also be performing.
