MISSISSIPPI MEN

CAPTAIN JOE KENT NARRATES THE HISTORY CHANNEL’S SERIES, ‘MISSISSIPPI MEN’

Captain Joe Kent is the narrator voice for the History Channel’s new series, ‘Mississippi Men’ which premiers January 28, 2015 at 9 pm CST. The show is about the people who live and work on the mighty Mississippi River and her tributaries. Captain Kent was very tight lipped when it came to the details of the show. “Of course I know what is going to happen on the show,” he said with a twinkle in his eye, “I did the voice overs for the entire first season, but all I will tell you is to batten down the hatches, and hold on if you can. It’s gonna be one helluva a ride down the muddy Mississippi.”
Being a true captain, Joe Kent stuck to the number one golden rule on a towboat-what happens on the boat stays on the boat-and applied that same principle to any and all behind the scenes or inside information. He did tell us that it was a great experience, and a lot of fun to work with the directors and film crews that developed the show. “If I could find deckhands that worked like that, it would all be smooth sailing. I think the end result of their labor, and commitment will be a kick ass show that will keep the audience tuning in for more each week. I can’t wait to see it myself!”
The timing of the show couldn’t be more perfect for Captain Joe either. He has just finished writing a book of short stories about life on the water entitled, ‘Towboat Joe’. The book will be hitting shelves from Deadly Writes Publishing at about the same time the TV show airs. A great addition to the book is a digital album with 15 songs that Captain Joe has just released as a soundtrack for his new book. ‘Towboat Joe (The Soundtrack)’ is a compilation of new and previously released original songs by various artists including Towboat Joe and The Muddy River Band.
Check out the book, Towboat Joe at:

It appears to be nothing but blue skies, and fair tides for the Mississippi River man on his latest literary and musical voyage. Tune in to the History Channel on January 28th to see if the calm seas are prevalent there as well or if the boat gets to rockin’. In the words of Captain Joe Kent, “It’s all smooth sailing until the ship hits the sand, but a calm sea never a skilled sailor made. Until then, earn your salt, keep it in the ditch, and I will see you on the one whistle.”Capt. Joe-3
What others are saying:
He’s a real-life towboat captain in Louisiana as well as a master storyteller and emerging country singer and songwriter, and Captain Joe Kent’s autobiographical debut Towboat Joe is fascinating, funny, at times scary, and always irresistible. “The river is my life,” Kent writes, and that life is unforgettably captured in these pages. The captain’s current boat, the M/V Ron Hull, is 90 feet long and 47 feet high. Towboats, he explains, push and don’t pull other boats, and only operate in canals and rivers. Ron Hull thought so much of Capt. Joe’s work that he invited him to christen the craft, a rare honor. Towboat Joe introduces us to an unforgettable cast of characters, such as a river know-it-all nicknamed Towboat Jesus, a dubious pilot known as Patch the Pirate, a one-armed barber, and Joe’s remarkable wife Denise. “I ain’t your damn deckhand,” she reminds him, and his adventures trying to buy Denise a surprise gift from Victoria’s Secret provide one of the book’s treasures. We are also treated to photographs of Capt. Joe’s beloved boat, river, and ports of call, along with poems and country song lyrics his life and absolutely unique experiences have inspired. Towboat Joe concludes with real-world words of wisdom from his decades of command, including “look in the mirror before pointing a finger,” “build a crew that replaces itself,” and “keep an even keel.” So climb aboard for a one-of-a-kind literary voyage, and enjoy every page of Captain Joe Kent’s Towboat Joe.

Country fans have already known Captain Joe Kent as a fine traditional country singer and sonwriter, but the beginning of 2015 finds him adding even more areas of media to his bag of creative tricks: his first book, the autobiographical Towboat Joe, by Deadly Writes Publishing. The book is a rare glimpse inside the largely secret world of towboats and life on the river in the 21st century. It’s fascinating, funny, always irresistible, and at times downright frightening. As Captain Kent writes of the Mississippi, “the river is my life,” and he captures that unique life unforgettably in its pages.
-Nashville Music Guide
Knowing nothing of tug boats or towboats, my only inclination of matters of the water was a short course in sailing, and Christopher Cross’s mesmerizing tune of the same name. But Captain Joe’s book is the perfect combination of story and music to glimpse into the incredible life of musician and towboat man. Captain Joe’s tales, music, and poems are best appreciated as his own true ongoing installments in the tale of his true adventures-maybe a soon to be released serial on YouTube? Captain Joe writes strong narratives that are drawn from an endless supply of anecdotes that typically involve water, women, whiskey, and the absurdities of life. This book is a marvel, unleashing the talent of a towboat philosopher and a man dedicated to his craft. Absolutely loved it!

Joe Kent writes like I think!

-Captain Billy Smith, Towboat Extraordinaire
You’ve heard these stories and never thought they could be true. Now you can see them in a book. If it’s in a book it has to be true.
-Captain Bernie Pena, Towboat Extraordinaire and Jeopardy Champion

Rhonda Vincent 2015 World Tour With Stops Throughout North America and Europe

RHONDA VINCENT & THE RAGE PICK UP 
FIVE SPBGMA NOMINATIONS

Vincent Announces 2015 World Tour With Stops Throughout North America and Europe

 
  

Nashville, Tenn.  (January 23, 2015) - The Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music of America's (SPBGMA) reigning Entertainer of the Year, Rhonda Vincent & The Rage have received five nominations for the upcoming SPBGMA convention, set to take place in Nashville, Tennessee, during the weekend of February 5-8.  Vincent, who was just named one of the Digital Journal's "5 best female voices in bluegrass music," is no stranger to the SPBGMA awards, as she was inducted into their Hall of Greats in 2014.

Rhonda Vincent & The Rage are nominated for the following categories:
Entertainer of the Year: Rhonda Vincent
Bluegrass Band of the Year Overall: Rhonda Vincent & The Rage
Female Vocalist of the Year (Contemporary): Rhonda Vincent
Male Vocalist of the Year (Contemporary):  Josh Williams
Fiddle Player of the Year: Hunter Berry

Additional excitement is building as Only Me, Vincent's latest recording project, which contains 6 bluegrass tracks as well as 6 country tracks, is nominated for "Best Bluegrass Album" by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, better known as The Grammy Awards!

The Boot is asking fans who should take home the Grammy award for "Best Bluegrass Album." Fans can vote every 24 hours HERE. Voting ends on February 5th, and will be used to predict their winner predictions. The 57th Grammy Awards will air live February 8th on CBS.

"We're excited to begin our third consecutive record-setting year for Rhonda Vincent & The Rage in 2015. The Grammy Nomination makes it extra special" said an excited Rhonda Vincent.

Be sure to join Rhonda & The Rage as they travel aboard the Martha White Bluegrass Express across the USA, and beyond, when they visit Europe in the summer.

"We'll be traveling the world this year, visiting countries we've never appeared in. The most recent call brought news that our show in Prague, Czechoslovakia has sold out 6 months in advance. They are adding a 2nd show during our visit. Prague is said to be the 'Bluegrass Capitol' of Europe. Thank goodness we're flying in a day early to add more shows," Vincent states.
