Vincent leaves Rounder Records
Wednesday, February 24, 2010
– Rhonda Vincent is leaving Rounder Records after 10 years. It was unclear exactly what Vincent's future plans were, but she is apparently working on contracts with a new label.
Whether Vincent, who has her own management company, will start her own label or sign up with an existing one was unclear. She has been in the studio recording new material, according to the Bluegrass Blog.
The bluegrass singer previously recorded for Rebel Records and Giant Records, where she attempted to forge a country career. Vincent's last disc for Rounder was "Destination Life," which came out in June 2009.
