Rhonda Vincent Wins SPBGMA Entertainer of the Year Award

Rhonda Vincent and the Rage take home four SPBGMA Awards including Instrumental Group of the Year

As the Wall Street Journal says “The New Queen of Bluegrass” has done it again… Rhonda Vincent named “Entertainer of the Year” at the 40th Annual SPBGMA (Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music of America) Convention & Awards Show in Nashville, Tennessee. The sold out, jammed pack venue watched as Rhonda took home the top honor the same night she was inducted into the SPBGMA Hall of Greats.

“This was one of the greatest evenings of my career, from the induction to the Hall of Greats, Entertainer of the Year, and I'm so proud of all the men of The Rage for being honored for their incredible talents,” says Rhonda Vincent. “We travel 250 days out of the year, living our dream, playing the music we love, and this night was a great reward for all our hard work. We are very thankful for all the honors!”

In addition, band members Josh Williams was named “Guitar Player of the Year” and Mickey Harris was named “Bass Player of the Year”. Collectively as a group, Rhonda Vincent & the Rage were named “Instrumental Group of the Year”.

Rhonda Vincent & the Rage have received over 70 industry awards, making the group the most awarded band in bluegrass!
