One Step Ahead (2003)

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Release Date: Apr 29, 2003; Lead Performance: Rhonda Vincent

This album, on which she showcases her own songwriting alongside reworked honky-tonk, gospel, and classic bluegrass, should bolster Vincent's reputation as the next big bluegrass star. Yet, despite her thrilling instrumental work and spirited vocals, she lacks the crossover appeal and feathery magic of Alison Krauss, whose shadowy harmony vocals on the title track make it a thing of wonder.
