Vincents scoop Bluegrass awards

Rhonda Vincent won the entertainer of the year and top contemporary female vocalist prizes at the Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music of America's award show last Sunday (Feb. 15), but the perennial trophy magnet didn't quite match the popularity of her brother, Darrin Vincent.
Individually and as half of the hot new Dailey & Vincent duo, Darrin pulled down five honors, as did his singing partner, Jamie Dailey. The Grascals took the album and instrumental group of the year awards, and their recently added banjo player, Kristin Scott Benson, was voted the best player in that instrumental category.
The awards ceremony was held at Nashville's Sheraton Music City Hotel.
Grand Ole Opry stars the Whites -- Buck and daughters Sharon and Cheryl -- were inducted into SPBGMA's Preservation Hall of Greats.
