Rhonda Vincent and Gene Watson on GAC

Gene Watson - In A Perfect WorldCountry music legend Gene Watson has a new CD due on September 25 on Shanachie Records entitled In A Perfect World. On this release, Watson records several duets with other notable Nashville vocalists, among them bluegrass music’s reigning queen, Rhonda Vincent.

Their duet is Buck Owens’ 1964 hit, Together Again, which was also successfully covered by Emmy Lou Harris 12 years later.

In A Perfect World producer Brent Rowan invited Rhonda to see Gene’s performance at The Nashville Palace earlier this year during the Country Music Association’s Music Festival Week (aka Fan Fair). At the show, Rowan shared the news that Gene was currently in the studio working on a new project, and Rhonda expressed her interest in singing with him at some point.

Gene was thrilled with this news and Rhonda was soon invited to be a part of the ongoing recording.

Tonight, she and Watson will perform their duet publicly for the first time on The Grand Ole Opry, which will be filmed for broadcast this weekend on GAC TV. There is nothing yet about this on the GAC web site, but we are told that it is set for Saturday, September 15.
