The Bottom Line

'All American Bluegrass Girl' is an amazing album from one of Bluegrass' most talented ladies, Rhonda Vincent. Rhonda has a passion for what she does and it is evident on every note she hits and every lyric she sings. Not only is she amazing but her band is too. It's perfection from top to bottom on this album.

Guide Review - Rhonda Vincent - All American Bluegrass Girl

It's amazing to me, how Rhonda Vincent can keep on improving with every new album she released - but she does. I'd have to say she is one of my favorite bluegrass singers and I can't get enough of her music. 'All American Bluegrass Girl' is another outstanding album from an amazing artist.

Title track and first song, "All American Bluegrass Girl," comes right out of the gate and describes the overall feel of the album. "Bill (Monroe) might be from Kentucky, Jimmy (Martin) from Tennessee... I'm an All American Bluegrass girl as proud as I can be" Rhonda sings in the first few lines. "Forever Ain't That Long Anymore" is a beautiful song, even if the subject matter isn't the happiest. Dolly Parton sings harmony on "Heartbreaker's Alibi." "God Bless The Soldier" is one of two songs giving support to the troops. The other is "Till They Came Home."

"Jesus Built A Bridge To Heaven" is a favorite because of the story-telling aspect to the lyrics in addition to the background harmonies. "Prettiest Flower There" is about a grieving family who lost a special loved one. "Angels stood at attention when she was called away," is one of my favorite lines; "Heaven's choir played her anthem as they welcomed one so rare" was another. "Ashes Of Mt. Augustine" is an instrumental, something I've come to enjoy from Rhonda and her band, The Rage.
