Bluegrass star Rhonda Vincent & the Rage perfrom at Fort Benning May 10

Grammy Award-winning vocalist and bluegrass star Rhonda Vincent & the Rage will perform in the Salute to the South Festival at noon and 3 p.m. May 10. The festival will be at Fort Benning's Uchee Creek Activity Center. It's free.

Vincent performs regularly at the Grand Ole Opry and makes frequent appearances on "Prairie Home Companion" on National Public Radio. She is often on Great American Country and Country Music Television cable channels, as well as other television and radio shows.

Vincent is currently touring on the Martha White Bluegrass Express, a touring coach made famous by Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs more than 50 years ago.
