CMA nominee Rhonda Vincent?

CMA AwardIf the recent past is any indication, Rhonda Vincent is likely to hear her name called repeatedly when the IBMA Award nominations are announced this morning in Nashville.

There is also news that she could receive another major nod when the CMA (Country Music Association) announces their nominees on September 10. Rhonda’s management has announced that her duet with country crooner Gene Watson, Together Again (from his In A Perfect World CD), has made it through to the second round of CMA balloting.

The song was a hit for Buck Owens in 1961, and covered by artists as diverse as Ray Charles and Emmylou Harris, both of whom took it to #1, before its first duet pairing with Kenny Rogers and Dottie West hit the country charts in 1983.

Here is a YouTube clip of Watson and Vincent performing Together Again live on television.
