What started as a routine night for Ms. B's Restaurant, 30 N. Main St., turned into the dream of a lifetime for the owner. The staff of the recently opened restaurant had prepared dinner for Rhonda Vincent, a country music star, who was performing Friday evening at the Leeds Center for the Arts and her staff of five.
"We had put the big pot into the little one," Beverly A. Perkins Chism, restaurant owner, said. "The good china, crystal and silver."
"When the crew came in, I sat down to chat with Ms. Vincent, and she told me some of upcoming plans, including the 17th annual International Bluegrass Music Awards Show Thursday night at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville.
She told me that she was going to sing one of her hits, "Til They Came Home," which covers military service personnel from 1941 until the present.
