They discussed several aspects of the project’s creation including recording at home, who she chose to track with her, and how the album got its start.
Q: When did this project begin?
Rhonda: I remember the date, it was January 5th of 2007, and I had flown to Portland, Oregon. I was in the hotel, doing my makeup, my husband Herb calls, and we started talking about how he had booked me almost a year now‚Ä¶the first year of dates that he had booked were just starting. We have our bluegrass crews and all these wonderful things; our girls are in school, one in college, and he said "Yeah, we’ve got a good thing going." When I hung up the phone, I kept on fixing my hair, and said "Hmm, I’d like that for an album title‚Ä¶" because I felt like that’s where I was in my life and my music.
She also makes mention of her brother Darrin, whose new Dailey & Vincent CD is due in January, as is hers.
Q: Your brother Darrin Vincent ‚Äì now leading his own band, Dailey & Vincent, on Rounder ‚Äì has reprised his role as co-producer. What does he bring to the table?
Rhonda: Darrin is involved from the very beginning. He’s a crucial part of the recording. He pretty much oversees everything from day one. He’s playing bass, he sings a lot of the harmony…to me, he may be my brother, but even if he was not my brother, he is the greatest harmony singer that there is. As a producer, he won’t settle for "OK, that’s good enough." He will never settle for that. It has to be the best you can do.
