Rhonda Vincent, who The Wall Street Journal dubbed "The New Queen of Bluegrass," is giving fans the opportunity to experience the most exciting show in the history of bluegrass music from the convenience of their living rooms, as captured in their new DVD/CD "All The Rage - Volume One."
The project features 14 songs, filmed LIVE at Bethel University in McKenzie, Tennessee during a 60-minute concert setting, and will be available on both CD and DVD via Upper Management Music beginning today, November 11.
"I felt it was the right time to capture these amazing musicians at the height of their career," Rhonda explains. "People always ask for a CD/DVD that perfectly represents what they hear us play on stage. 'All The Rage' is completely 'what you see and what you get.' The actual tones of the instruments, and exact timber of each voice. Authenticity is our top priority, and this project captures the incredible talent and skill, along with the passion and excitement of our live performances."

The full concert footage features Vincent on mandolin, along with world-class musician Rage members Hunter Berry (fiddle), Brent Burke (resophonic guitar), Mickey Harris (bass), Aaron McDaris (banjo), and Josh Williams (guitar).
Each musician is at the top of their game, bringing their unique individuality, while also being featured in solo performances. Collectively their skills are simply unmatched, with several original songs, which further make this a one-of-a-kind presentation.
The band's full set list includes a combination of fan favorites and classic hymns. There are several standout tracks on the project, with songs delivering the highest of highs and the lowest of lows.
"Muleskinner Blues" features one of the biggest vocal performances of Vincent's illustrious career, hitting some of her highest and longest notes to date. Another key highlight is the toe-tapping sing-along, "Kentucky Borderline," penned by Vincent, alongside radio personality Terry Herd.
Also featured on the project is a special live version of "I've Forgotten You," a song co-written by Grammy award-winning songwriter Hillary Lindsey, who has penned tracks for superstars like Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga, Carrie Underwood, Little Big Town and more.
