Rhonda Vincent began performing music when she was just a child in her family’s band The Sally Mountain Show. She achieved lots of success in the bluegrass genre throughout the 70s and 80s, and in 1985, she competed on the show You Can Be A Star. After she won the competition, she signed a solo recording contract.
Throughout the 1990s, she released a couple country music albums, but returned to the bluegrass genre in 2000. She was the International Bluegrass Music Association’s Female Vocalist of the Year from 2000-2006, as well as IBMA Entertainer of the Year in 2001! In 2000, The Wall Street Journal dubbed her the “New Queen of Bluegrass” because of her contributions to the genre.
To this day, she continues to release bluegrass music and tour, in fact Vincent, a seven-time Grammy nominee, won a Grammy Award for Best Bluegrass Album in 2017. She stays pretty active on her social media accounts and recently revealed that she was robbed in Nashville, Tennessee.
“My car was robbed,” she wrote on Instagram. “Chargers, Apple TV & Power Cord, Inverter, and one shoe was taken. Why in the world would the robbers just take one shoe? #Reward if you find my missing shoe.”
She hasn’t responded to any comments asking if the shoe had any sentimental value to her, but we do hope that the culprit is found!
