The bandleader's brother, Darrin Vincent, a member of Skaggs' Kentucky Thunder, sings harmonies throughout.
"I saw a picture the other day of my family," Vincent
"I feel this is my debut as a songwriter," Vincent
said of the new album."That's the most exciting thing to me about this new record."She
wrote songs in her
teens for her
family ensemble but feels the Sally Mountain Show albums weren't made with as much focus as her
recent solo efforts.
"Now I feel like I can contribute as a songwriter," she
said."This is the first time I've written songs and they had to [hold up] right beside Nashville's top songwriters.My songs are on there with legendary writers like Hank Williams."
The Williams tune is "My Sweet Love Ain't Around."Also from honky tonk's glory days, Vincent
revives "Drivin' Nails in My Coffin," a top-five hit for both Floyd Tillman and Ernest Tubb in the 1940s.
As part of a new sponsorship deal, the company will present Vincent
and the Rage with a tour bus.
A name as familiar in bluegrass circles as Gibson and Martin, Martha White earned international fame during its years of support for Lester Flatt & Earl Scruggs, who performed the theme song in thousands of performances, live and on radio, including their 1963 concert in Carnegie Hall.
"My dream has been to record the 'Martha White Theme,'" Vincent
paused and then laughed as she
realized that the statement might sound funny to the uninitiated."I know people have big dreams.That was one of mine."
