2014 two CD release from the five-time Grammy nominee. Rhonda Vincent, the New Queen of Bluegrass as deemed by the Wall Street Journal, is clearing the lane for this double disc release that includes six-songs each of Bluegrass and Country. The project, appropriately titled Only Me, serves as a reminder why Rhonda Vincent & The Rage is the most awarded band in Bluegrass music. Sticking with her musical roots, Rhonda is joined by Daryle Singletary on 'We Must Have Been Out of Our Minds', while Willie Nelson adds vocals and a guitar solo to the title track.

There's a lot to enjoy - the title track is a cover of the Billy Yates song "Me Marie" with the title and chorus changed tweaked to accommodate the female view point, and as well as featuring Willie Nelson on vocals, he also contributes a great solo as part of a very tasteful instrumental section. I also enjoyed the brace of Bill Anderson songs on the 'country' disc: "Once A Day", best known for Connie Smith's version, is a great song and deserves to be re-aired here, and "Bright Lights, Country Music" always sounds good to me! The album closes off with a superb take on the classic "Drivin' Nails (in my coffin)".
The playing throughout is superb. Rhonda's band The Rage are heavily featured and I think the featured steel guitar player is Mike Johnson, maybe not a well known name but google him and you'll be amazed at his list of credits!
The nuisance value is worth it for Rhonda, who has delivered great music over many years, whether it be bluegrass, country or a blend of each. The title track is a duet with Willie Nelson, while Daryle Singletary joins Rhonda for a duet on We must have been out of our minds, which was originally a huge country hit for George Jones and Melba Montgomery.
Once a day (originally a #1 country hit for Connie Smith) and Beneath still waters (which Rhonda may have learned from Emmylou's album Blue Kentucky Girl, though her version was also a cover, the original being recorded by Diana Trask) are among the highlights on the second CD.
Rhonda has never disappointed me yet and didn't do so here either. Excellent.

Didn't expect 2 short CDs but they work. It's my favourite artist anyway so what's not to like.Published 23 months ago by barry massey
The quintessential true Bluegrass sound, excellently produced in musicianship and material. Rhonda 'tells' each song as a personal experience. Read morePublished on 17 July 2014 by G.J.Watts
