Rhonda Vincent was invited to be the newest member of the Grand Ole Opry on Feb. 28, 2020. Opry member Jeannie Seely surprised Vincent with the invitation following Vincent’s performance of her bluegrass hit “Like I Could,” which was co-written by Seely.
Vincent’s induction ceremony, originally slated for March 24, 2020, got put on the back-burner after COVID-19 halted music performed for full-capacity audiences. Over eight months after Vincent’s originally-scheduled big night had come and gone, the Opry announced Feb. 6, 2021 as the make-up date.
Fellow bluegrass lover Dierks Bentley made Vincent’s Opry membership official.
