Bluegrass Discussion: Rhonda and Willie Sing Sweet Music

Rhonda and Willie Sing Sweet Music


Alan Jackson isnít the only country music icon dipping a toe in bluegrass waters this year. Rhonda Vincent had Willie Nelson in to sing a duet with her last night in Nashville.

Rhonda says the song is one called Si Si Only Me, written by Billy Yates and Roger Brown, and that she and her band had a blast tracking it with Willie.

ďBilly Yates wrote the songs Choices and I Donít Need No Rockiní Chair for George Jones. The irony is that I found this song on the same day as the George Jones memorial service at the Grand Ole Opry.

The song is in the same vein as Willieís song, On The Road Again, which is why I thought it would be perfect for Willie to sing and play on this one.

We recorded it in a straight bluegrass style, with Aaron McDaris kicking off the song on  banjo, and the other musicians of The Rage trading licks with Willie throughout the song.

I canít wait for you to hear it!!Ē

The track will be included on Vincentís next album for Upper Management Music.
