now playing: Rhonda Vincent: Good Thing Going
Good Thing Going
Hope, resilience, humor, a bit of swing, a dash of country, and all kinds of bluegrass -- that’s all to be found on Rhonda Vincent’s latest album Good Thing Going. Not to mention, of course, that Vincent is one of the best singers around, in bluegrass or any genre. There’s a classic country tearjerker with The Scorn of a Lover, and a gospel tinged hope filled story filled story on I Will See You Again. Lover’s Hit parade is straight up bluegrass, both fun and substance. I’m Leavin’ is a bit of the resilience, a driving Vincent original that’d be at home on a country or bluegrass playlist. A different and slightly wry take on that situation, maybe, is the story in World's Biggest Fool, which is set to a fine country swing melody. Just One of a Kind and I Gotta Start Somewhere are, in their different ways, heartfelt songs of the possibilities of love and the possibilities of change.
That's just part of the fine stuff on this collection -- and then there’s Keith Urban.
The country superstar joins Vincent for quiet, understated, and quite lovely take on the folk song The Water Is Wide. Mention must made too, of the excellent group of backing musicians who support Vincent on the project, including Hunter Berry, Ron Stewart, and Rhonda’s brother, Darrin Vincent, who also co produced the project with her.
