A BMI songwriter for more than 20 years, Vincent was named Female Vocalist of the Year at the 2000 International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) Awards, the first of an unprecedented six consecutive wins in that category, bringing her career total to 11. The Missouri native also boasts 30 SPBGMA (Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music in America) Awards, including her 1974 win for Best Single Recording for "Muleskinner Blues" at the age of eight. An accomplished mandolin, guitar and fiddle player, Vincent and her band the Rage are currently on the road in support of All American Bluegrass Girl.
