Rhonda Vincent Shares Award-Winning Cornbread Recipe

Rhonda Vincent is a seven-time IBMA Female Vocalist of the Year in addition to countless other awards, the latest of which has nothing to do with her music: she’s the Celebrity Cornbread Cookoff winner! Earlier this week, the bluegrass icon celebrated her tenth year as both a performer and participant in the National Cornbread Festival in South Pittsburg, Tenn. Her ‘Rhonda’s Ragin’ Cornbread‘ took home a blue ribbon this year, and the musician was proud to share her win with a worthy cause.

“It’s always an honor to represent Martha White (baking products) and especially exciting to win the celebrity cook-off at the National Cornbread Festival,” Rhonda tells The Boot. “The proceeds go to the Marion County Children’s Fund, which assists foster and underprivileged children in Marion County, Tenn., so it’s always very special to participate in this event!”

This year’s cook-off and auction raised more than $4,500 for the Marion County Children’s Fund. A family in nearby Rutherford County also benefited from the event, as Rhonda won a television in the auction and donated it to a family that recently lost their Murfreesboro home to a fire.

The bluegrass beauty, pictured above with Martha White’s Linda Carmen, will release her first-ever all-gospel project on July 10. The CD/DVD set, Sunday Mornin’ Singin’ will feature performances filmed live at the church Rhonda attended as a child, Greentop Methodist Church in Greentop, Mo.
