Vincent does "Please Mr. Please" bluegrass style

Friday, April 5, 2024 – Rhonda Vincent's new single, "Please Mr. Please," from her upcoming album is available today.

The follow-up from Vincent's number one song, "City Of New Orleans," "Please Mr. Please" is a new rendition of Olivia Newton-John's country hit.

The music video, which was recorded during the SPBGMA convention in Nashville, was premiered digitally by M Music & Musicians Magazine today and will premiere on The Heartland Network at 2 p.m. Eastern/Pacific.

"I was working on the song 'Four Strong Winds' from our upcoming destinations-themed album, and as I turned from working on that song, all of a sudden, out of nowhere, I started singing 'Please Mr. Please,'" said Vincent. "There was something similar in the songs. My heart started to race, and I instantly thought, 'This will be a great bluegrass song.'"

"I couldn't wait to tell the guys in The Rage. When I mentioned it, none of them had heard the song before. This made it even better. I found that so many people have never heard of the song, and it's like having my own original bluegrass song. We rehearsed it at sound check and then started performing it on our shows. I could instantly tell this song was special with everyone's reactions, with many singing along, and best of all, people are now asking for it everywhere. I love that."

"As for the video, I asked the videographer to capture the pure essence of bluegrass," said Vincent. "The family atmosphere, kids playing bluegrass, adults playing bluegrass, banjos ringing throughout, dancing, fun. These elements all wrapped into one video. Our video of 'Please, Mr. Please' is what he captured. I hope it makes you smile."

CD reviews for Rhonda Vincent

CD review - All the Rage Volume One Rhonda Vincent has been a solid voice of bluegrass music since the 1970's. She first performed with a family band (The Sally Mountain Show), before going solo. Her career took a country turn for a few years, but she's mostly a bluegrass artist these days, and bluegrass is the beneficiary. Vincent has found her voice (literally and figuratively) fronting The Rage. Anyone who has seen her live show knows that she can tear it up, whilst remaining true to mountain music sensibility. ...
CD review - Christmas Time The very thought of Rhonda Vincent, with her lovely voice and wonderful musicianship, ought to sell many on her new Christmas album, "Christmas Time." She performs some of the best loved Christmas songs, ranging from a reverent "Angels We Have Heard on High," to a celebratory western swing of "Jingle Bells." "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" also benefits from a reverence similar to that applied to "Angels We Have Heard On High." But no matter the ...
CD review - Only Me Bluegrass icon Rhonda Vincent took a stab at country stardom early in her career, after leaving her family's Sally Mountain Show band, but before racking up an ongoing string of bluegrass classics with her band The Rage. It didn't go well, perhaps because Vincent is a traditionalist who didn't wear contemporary country production with the right artifice. It certainly wasn't because she doesn't love country music, as this new double disc set proves. There's a ...
