On Tuesday 9 February 2021, Gene Watson issued a statement of congratulations to Rhonda Vincent on her induction into The Grand Ole Opry.
‘I was not able to be there to welcome Rhonda Vincent to The Grand Ole Opry this past Saturday night (Saturday 6 February 2021) but though it’s a little late, I want to congratulate her on the great honour of being inducted into the Opry.
There’s no one more deserving.
She’s one of our greatest singers and entertainers from classic country to bluegrass.
Rhonda, you have finally been officially inducted. Congratulations!’
