Hi!  I'm Mary.  35 from Oklahoma.
My hubby and I have been married 15 years
One daughter, 14, who is the absolute light of our world.
I work at a winery here as the operations manager.  It's fun. 
My favorite pasttime is cooking, I collect cookbooks.  I have probably close to 100.  Don't tell my hubby.  He hasn't figured it out yet.  
I love music all kinds.  Country and Bluegrass are what I grew up on. 
I'm just happy to be here.  Rhonda is incredible.

Ragin' Lunatic

I find myself up late and thought I'd share my first ever experience with Rhonda.  I was just vaguely aware of her and the Rage and on sort of a whim went to see her at the Oakboro NC Music Hall last Oct. or Nov. 2005. It was the first bluegrass concert I've ever been to. Oakboro Music Hall is a couple of old store fronts and they've knocked some walls down and made a big room with exposed rafters. 


I came in late in the middle of "Kentucky Borderline" which I had never heard before. Kevin is playing his lead part and he and the guys are in dark suits and I can't remember their shirt colors but I don't think it was the red ones and I'm thinking, "This is so unlike a rock and roll concert."  Rhonda's in a dress that is reminiscent of what the ladies may have worn on stage at the Opry 50 - 60 years ago and she looked so stunning.  And there's the "Martha White" banners on those retro microphones, and there's no wall of amplifiers behind them, just a brick wall. 


The rhythm of that song is so fast and Rhonda and everyone are obviously feeling it and they are revved up, high energy, and this old rocker is immediately tuned in. Kevin's lead ends and Rhonda, Mickey and Josh all lean into the same microphone and hit the chorus in perfect time and harmony and my head starts to spin because I feel for a second I'm in a time warp and it is 1949.  But I was absolutely dazzled and would have been standing on the back of my chair screamin' "Bravo! Bravisimo! Encore!" but I'm a ragin' lunatic by this time none the less.  It took just half a song to turn me into one.   


But, this is the really good part.  After that song or the next one, Rhonda was adjusting her ear piece monitor and her ring gets caught in her hair! She gives her hand a tug but she has gotten it stuck good.  Imagine that - the star with her hand stuck in her hair!!!??? In a second's time you can see in her face a little panic, a little embarrassment, a little laughing at herself.  In the vulnerability of the brief moment she becomes even more gorgeous, radiantly so (forget it girls, you wouldn't understand), and it just melts a guy's heart. Rhonda quickly regained composure, leaned down to someone on the front row, and her hand is soon released.  It was in that moment that she swept me off my feet.  Stole my heart. (Just don't tell my wife - though she strongly suspects. I call myself the "Ragin' Lunatic".  She'd call me the "Ragin' Idiot.").  


My wife was not a blue grass fan but she reluctantly came along to that Oakboro concert (I've only been listening to bluegrass for about a year).  I think she feared being stuck in a room full of tobacco chewin' yokels.  But Rhonda and the guys converted her. She's a rager now too.  I suspect she's got a big crush on Josh but there you are.

WOW! I didn't realize how many people actually posted to this message board. I know that many many MORE jsut read the posts, but it seems like every day the number of people coming out and posting is growing. That's pretty cool.

I'll probably update this list when we reach 10 pages. It's good enough for now, though.

Very good Ben ! I am glad to see you have moved this post back to the top of the list!! It is such fun to read about other people and see where everyone is from, and I really like the fact you went through and listed everyone numerically by their post! Have a wonderful day and let's see who all else posts! John Spence

Ok, I haven't posted yet but I am Alayna from Marshfield, MO and I am 16. I am a big country music/bluegrass music fan. I haven't seen Rhonda in concert yet but plan to by years end. The first concert I went to was Terri Clark when I was 13. We never really went to concerts.


I am also a huge Patty Loveless and Alison Krauss fan. I have 3 pet turtles. Their names are Bonnie, Addie, and Hollie. Can I say they are hungrey little vultures most of the time.


I love to draw, paint, make crafts and anything that has to do with art. I also love playing soccer.


I really don't know what else to write but is you want to know something else I may like just ask.

Hey there, everybody!

Just so EVERYONE knows, we have some new Ragers to the board, and I thought that I would go back and dig up this great topic out of the Message Board vaults (AKA page seven) so that everyone can get to be known a little better.

Hope to see some new Rager bios up here soon!

-Ben Hughes
