Rhonda Vincent and Daryle Singletary
When: Thursday, June 8th, 2:00 p.m.
Where: Budweiser Forever Country Park Stage
Bluegrass queen Rhonda Vincent and Nineties traditionalist Daryle Singletary have worked with one another off and on over the years, including on Singletary's 1995 self-titled debut album. In July, Vincent and Singletary will release their first-ever duets album, titled American Grandstand, which joins the two for some choice covers and a handful of originals. Singletary, with his limber, emotive croon, plays George Jones to Vincent's pure-voiced Tammy Wynette on a stunning version of the famed couple's "One," as well as "Golden Ring," shifting effortlessly to Conway Twitty-Loretta Lynn classics like "After the Fire Is Gone" and "Louisiana Woman, Mississippi Man." If you're concerned that traditional country sounds are lacking at CMA Fest, fear no more.
