Rhonda Vincent was born July 13, 1962, in Kirksville, Mo., where she still lives. Her musical career started in her family's band as a child. After appearing on the TNN series You Can Be a Star, she was hired to play in Jim Ed Brown's touring band. (Alison Krauss temporarily replaced her in the Vincent family's band.) Throughout the 1980s, Vincent accepted numerous female vocalist honors from the Society of the Preservation of Bluegrass Music Association (SPGMA).

In the 1990s, Vincent signed to Giant Records in Nashville, hoping for crossover success in the country market. After two albums failed, she chose Rounder Records for a series of critically acclaimed traditional bluegrass albums. Back Home Again arrived in 2000 and The Storm Still Rages in 2001. The International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) awarded her its female vocalist award in 2000, 2001, 2002 and 2003. She also captured the IBMA's entertainer of the year award in 2001. One Step Ahead, which features many songs she co-wrote as well as a duet with Krauss, was released in 2003.
