Music Video Premiere: Dailey & Vincent ring in the holiday season with 'Frosty The Snowman'

  Country duo Dailey & Vincent ring in the holiday season by putting their spin on a classic tune. AXS is proud to exclusively premiere their latest music video for “Frosty the Snowman.” Watch the cheerful clip above.

The track comes from their newly released holiday album Dailey & Vincent: The Sounds of Christmas. Their first ever Christmas record debuted at number eight on Billboard Holiday Albums Chart and hit the number one spot on Billboard Bluegrass Albums chart. The album features classics like “Let It Snow,” “Rocking Around the Christmas Tree,” “Road to Bethlehem” featuring the one and only Dolly Parton, and “Tonight It’s Christmas” featuring Ricky Skaggs.

In support of the release and to keep that holiday cheer going, Dailey & Vincent will also embark on the A Springer Mountain Farms Chicken Christmas Tour. Shows kick off Nov. 24 in Marion, Virginia and concludes Dec. 16 in Steelville, Missouri. Tickets are on sale now. See the complete list of dates below.

We spoke with the duo about their new holiday album and upcoming tour.

AXS:  This is your first ever Christmas album and the response so far has been great! It debuted at No. 8 on the Billboard Holiday Albums Chart. What made you decide now was the right time for a holiday album?

Dailey & Vincent:  We’d been wanting to record a Christmas CD for the past 11 years. We finally had all the songs and the moment to record and release them felt right. With BMG, Cracker Barrel, Springer Mountain Farms, Apex Management, and Adkins Publicity, our team has helped us put together an amazing release of our favorite songs of childhood memories and way of life for us.

AXS: For this project, you got to work with Dolly Parton and Ricky Skaggs. Can you tell me how they became part of the project?

D&V: Dolly and Ricky are our friends and have said for years if the right song ever comes along, we’d love to sing together. “Tonight is Christmas” and “Road to Bethlehem” fit Ricky and Dolly to a tee. We sent the lyrics and music to them, and they both said ‘Yes we’d love to be a part of it.’ We’re blessed and thankful that they took time to add their amazing voices.

AXS: Can you tell me a bit about the A Springer Mountain Farms Chicken Christmas tour coming up?

D&V: Thanks to our late friend Jean Shepard, Springer Mountain Farms has been a corporate sponsor and huge supporter of Dailey & Vincent over the past five years along with WSM, Grand Ole Opry, the Ryman, as well as Bluegrass and Country music. Branding our Christmas tour ‘A Springer Mountain Farms Chicken Christmas’ was a strategy to help promote Gus Arrendale’s company along with the CD that’s in Cracker Barrel Old Country Store, which has the Springer Mountain Farms logo on it as well. Without these great companies, we feel the promotion of and awareness of traditional music would be a lost art.

AXS: Aside from the album, you have some big holiday events planned, like Christmas episodes of The Dailey and Vincent show. What is it about this season that you love so much?

D&V: Yes, we’re on our third season of “The Dailey & Vincent Show” on RFD-TV. Thanks again to Gus and Springer Mountain Farms, we went back to Jamie’s hometown of Gainesboro, Tennessee to record four weeks’ worth of Christmas shows along with Jeannie Seely, Moe Bandy, TG Sheppard, and Kelly Lang. Don Reid of the Statler Brothers lent a helping hand with writing the first episode with a theme and storyline narrated by Opry Star Jeannie Seely. It was a cool concept and very exciting to record. What we love about Christmas is celebrating the Birthday of Jesus, spending time with family and reflecting on the year’s blessings.

Dailey & Vincent Are ‘Thankful’ Dolly Parton Sang on ‘Road to Bethlehem’ With Them

When Dailey & Vincent announced their Christmas album, The Sounds of Christmas, fans quickly took sight of another famous name among the track list. The name belongs to Dolly Parton, who lent her voice to the original track, “Road to Bethlehem.” Jamie Dailey and Darrin Vincent first heard the song after a friend of a friend had pitched it to them. The demo featured a female voice as harmony and lead in one of the verses. The men decided to keep a female presence among their new version and aimed high when it came to their ideal collaborator.

“I sent it to her with the lyrics and… a long shot because she’s so busy, especially with Dollywood,” admitted Vincent in an exclusive video premiering on Sounds Like Nashville.

Thankfully, Parton agreed to join the Grand Ole Opry members and brought the song to life in the way only she could.

“She was so gracious to have just a short amount of time to sing for us and man, it was so good. I remember I was just crying and just so thankful that she took time to help us make memories of Christmas so special for all of our fans and for us on this Christmas record,” shared Vincent, with Dailey adding that she put her “lasting legacy” on the tune.

Parton was also thrilled to be featured on the Christmas song, saying “I am so proud to be a part of this wonderful song ‘Road to Bethlehem.’ I love Dailey & Vincent and I love how we sound singing together. I am so glad they asked me to sing on it with them.”

See what Dailey & Vincent had to say about working with Parton and how “Road to Bethlehem” came to be in the videos above.

March 11, 2017 was our induction by Country legend Jennie Seely, and Folk/Americana icons Old Crow Medicine Show.  If that wasnt enough, we recorded season 3 of our Nationally aired TV show every Saturday night 9:30et on RFD-TV.

Answer:  Our latest CD is Patriots & Poets on Dreamlined Records.  An all orginal written recording from Dailey & Vincent, we added special guest artiests  Bela Fleck, Doyle Lawson, Taranda Greene, David Rawlings and the amazing actor/musician/Comedian Steve Martin.

Lamitschka:  How did you choose the title for the CD?  Is there a story behind the name?

Answer:  Our manager Zac Koffler came up with it, looking over the titles and effort to Write the entire CD, he said you all are Patriots for always honoring our veterans and family’s, and poets for writing all the stories within this CD.

Lamitschka:  Do you write the songs yourself? If not, how do you go about finding the songs for your CD?

Answer:  We wrote them all ourselves with friends.

Lamitschka:  What is the difference between your last CD and your current one?

Answer:  The last CD/DVD we did was a live performance at the Hylton Center in Mannassas, VA.  It was a collection of new and old. Patriots and Poets was our first studio recording in a few years.

Lamitschka:  What kind of songs do you like to record the most?

Answer: My favorite is singing gospel music, lyrics that lift up and tell about our savior Jesus.

Lamitschka:  What is your favorite song among all the songs you have recorded and what's the story behind it?

Answer:  My favorite was written by Jimmy Fortune of the Statler Brothers,  I Believe.  It talks about three things I live my life for Heaven, Calvory, and Jesus.  Jimmy was faced with leaving his home to follow his music dreams, his house sold in 4 days, and while thinking over his move and new life away from his childhood home, he walked out on the back porch and wrote this song.

Lamitschka:  How much creative control do you have over your music?

Answer:  Jamie & I have 100% creative control over all our endevors.  We’ve been so blessed to find great partners to team up with who see our vision and desires for great music and pray we contuine to create and team up with awesome companies in the future.

Lamitschka:  Do you have any interesting stories about how fans have been affected by your music?

Answer: The first song we ever recorded together as Dailey & Vincent was a Gillian Welch/David Rawlin’s tune called By the Mark.  We had no idea what an impact it would make on our carriers and others lives.  I remember playing a show and a fan came up and asked for a few moments of our time privately.  He began to share driving one Sunday morning listening to Sirius/XM radio and The Mark came on, he felt the pulling of the Holy Spirit so much he began crying and stopped the car, got out and bowed on his knees and rededicated his life to Jesus.  Looking in his tear filled eyes we were all crying and rejoicing.  Since then, there have been countless testemonies like that over and over.

Lamitschka:  Who inspires you musically and how deep do your musical roots run?

Answer:  I was inspired by my father Johnny Vincent, I think I’m the 4th generation of music.  It’s in my heart and soul, I love to play and sing music.

Lamitschka:  What do you think about today's music scene versus its post and where do you see it going in the future?

Answer:  Today’s music scene seems very sad to me, auto makers removing CD players from vehichels, record stores closed, sections for music in stores gone, and the traditional entertainers who birthed music and entertainment are all gone as well.  I’m not sure the future of music sales and what it’s going to look like in 2 more years.  As for recording and musicianship, it seems to be thriving and well.

Lamitschka:  What do you think about today's music industry?

Answer:  Today’s music industry is dying out, thanks to technology, it takes less and less people to send music out around the world, live Discjockeys are almost a thing of the past with automation on most radio stations.  This is an odd time to be in music sales and the business.

Lamitschka:  If you had the chance to change something about the music industry, what would it be?

Answer:  Figure out away to pay the writters/publishers/musicians/artist fairly for the work that’s put in to creating and making music.

Lamitschka:  As an artist, you do many tasks such as recording, touring, interviews. What do you like best, what's your favorite activity?

Answer:  I really enjoy creating in the studio, music recoreded is forever and to create and do your very best is very rewarding to me.

Lamitschka:  Are you doing anything to take music beyond its current borders or are you happy where it is?

Answer:  Dailey & Vincent keep stretching ourselves further away from the Traditianl sounds of Bluegrass.  It’s for different reasons. 1. Is to compete with the Keith Urban’s of the world, acoustic instruments can not hold up to big productions like his, so we added drums and piano to help fill in the foundation so our vocals and other solo instruments could hold up.  2. Adding a legitimant bass vocal and tenor to our sound has helped the overall sound feel and sound bigger as well.

Lamitschka:  What was your big break that got you into the music business?

Answer:  I’ve always been in the music busniess, I’ve never had a day job I depeneded on to support my family.  From age 2 I’ve been singing and playing onstage.. it’s like the circus.....

Lamitschka:  Before you became a star, were your friends and family supportive or was it a struggle?

Answer:  I don’t see myself as a star, I’m very blessed to get to sing and play for people all around the world.  My entire life friends, family, wife and kids have been very supportive.  It’s hills and valleys in this business, you enjoy and learn from each of them.

Lamitschka:  What inspired you to become an artist?

Answer:  Jamie Dailey asked me if I ever thought about starting a band, I said no and Jamie said you need to, infact we need to together and it’s been the best advice and adventure I’ve ever been apart of.

Lamitschka:  What drives you?

Answer:  Making myself a better musician/singer/entertainer inspires me.  I really love watching and talking to others who are so gifted, that’s inspiring as well.

Lamitschka:  What's unique about you that will differentiate you from other artists?

Answer:  I believe we're genuine and very down-home, both Jamie & I and our band members.  Egos are not welcome around us.  I would hope others would see that.

Lamitschka:  What has been your greatest challenge in the music business?

Answer:  Making sure we make good decisions that will keep the best musicians and singers in our group that they all can support their families. Very important to us.

Lamitschka:  What moments in your career stand out in your memory as highlights and achievements which you are proud of?

Answer: My highlights would be: Our first year out being nominated for 9 IBMA Awards and winning  7 was pretty amazing and being the only ones to win "Emerging Artists and Entertainers of the Year" the same year.  Having a cooperate Sponsor with Cracker Barrel old country store and Springer Mountain Farms Chicken was a huge blessing. Having a monthly radio show on WSM and a weekly National TV show on RFD-TV amazing, but the ultimate was being asked by Marty Stuart to become the 213 member of the family to the Grand Ole Opry.  We’ve been blessed.

Lamitschka:  Any thoughts of retirement ahead?

Answer: Yes, we’ve always agreed in 20 or so years we would get out and let the younger one’s have it. We want to go out while we still have our health and spend time with family.. We will always play the Grand Ole Opry our home.

Lamitschka:  Who is your biggest critic, yourself or others?

Answer:  I believe we are our biggest critic, were pretty hard on ourself and want to do our best with integrety.

Lamitschka:  When you get time off, how do you like to relax?

Lamitschka:  Is there anything in your life that you would change if you could?

Answer:  No, I feel I’ve done my best and am where I need to be.  I’m blessed the Lord has had grace and favor on us, I want to keep doing the right things the right way with the best people possible.

Answer:  Lots of music and singing, along with entertainment and laughter.

Lamitschka:  When you're on tour, do you have time to play tourist?

Dailey & Vincent Join in Honoring The Man In Black

Grand Ole Opry Stars Dailey & Vincent join an amazing cast in paying tribute to The Man in Black on Johnny Cash: Forever Words.  In addition to Dailey & Vincent, the album (scheduled for release April 6) will also feature Kris Kristofferson, Willie Nelson, Brad Paisley, Elvis Costello, Alison Krauss & Union Station, John Mellencamp, and more. 

To see a brief synopsis, visit:

"Determining the artist for each song was truly a matter of the heart," album co-producer and Cash's son John Carter Cash said in a statement. "I picked the artists who are most connected with my father, who had a personal story that was connected with dad. It became an exciting endeavor to go through these works, to put them together and present them to different people who could finish them in a way that I believed that dad would have wanted."

The 16-track album was compiled using what Carter Cash described as a "monstrous amassment" of material left behind by Johnny and June Carter Cash after their deaths. The handwritten letters, documents and poems were penned by Cash over the course of his life and shaped into songs over the past two years by John Carter Cash and co-producer Steve Berkowitz.

Mostly recorded at The Cash Cabin Studio in Hendersonville, Tennessee, the collection is the musical companion to the 2016 best-selling book Forever Words: The Unknown Poems, a collection of unpublished writings edited by Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Paul Muldoon and curated by John Carter and Berkowitz. The more than a dozen major artists come from the worlds of Country, Bluegrass, Pop and Rock.

In a statement, Dailey & Vincent said “What a truly amazing experience it was to work on this project and in the company of such craftsman like Kris Kristofferson, Willie Nelson, and Elvis Costello. We want to say thank you to John Carter for the invitation to collaborate and the honor they bestowed on us when helping to create something new and beautiful with their father’s words.”

The album will be released on CD, as a two-LP vinyl double album and on digital formats.

Bluegrass Duo Dailey and Vincent On Bucking Tradition, New Country Album

Award-winning duo of Jamie Dailey and Darrin Vincent celebrate 10 years of eclectic musicianship

 By Deborah Evans Price

Ten years ago, on December 29th, 2007, Jamie Dailey and Darrin Vincent had their first paid gig as a duo with a performance on the Grand Ole Opry. The duo became official Opry members last spring, capping a remarkable decade of building an award-winning career that now encompasses an eclectic mix of country, folk, gospel and bluegrass music along with television and comedy.


Dailey & Vincent occupy a unique space in popular music by forging a sound that honors their traditional music pedigrees, yet is edgy enough to appeal to more progressive audiences. That evolution has been both organic and a little calculated, borne out of trying to shake up their own routine. "The first year or so we went out and did pretty much all traditional bluegrass and the second year we thought we had to come up with something different, so we went wireless with the vocal mics so we would walk around and sing. We were trying to make it more interesting," Dailey tells Rolling Stone Country over a plate of beans and cornbread before a Tuesday night performance on the Opry.


"About two years later we hired a bass singer," he continues. "When we did that, that got us into doing lots of variety – real gospel to quartet-style singing in both secular and gospel."


Before they teamed up to become Dailey & Vincent, both men were already seasoned musicians with stellar reputations in the bluegrass and country communities. Dailey had spent nine years performing with legendary bluegrass outfit Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, while Vincent logged 11 years with Ricky Skaggs' famed band Kentucky Thunder as well as contributing to albums by Dolly Parton and others. Vincent first met Dailey in 2001 at the International Bluegrass Music Association Awards in Louisville, Kentucky. "He was singing with Doyle Lawson," recalls Vincent. "I was sitting with Ricky and Sharon White Skaggs and we were smitten by Jamie's vocal. By the time the song was over, I got backstage quickly and as he was walking off stage, I had my hand out and said, 'I'm Darren Vincent and I'd like to be your friend.' We exchanged numbers."


The two became instant friends and began working on songs together. It didn't take long to discover they had a special chemistry. "One thing we've done that has never been done before – that I know of – is in January of 2007, Jamie and I gave Doyle and Ricky a year's notice that we were leaving at the end of that year," Vincent says. "We told them that we'd help them find replacements for us or whatever we needed to do because we wanted to make sure it was an easy transition for them."


When they informed their booking agent they expected to book 100 dates their first year as Dailey & Vincent, they were met with skepticism. In fact, when the agent was slow to get dates on the books, the duo began booking themselves and had 86 shows confirmed in three months. They went to the booking agency and dropped a thick binder with all the dates on the agent's desk. Needless to say, he then got to work and continued filling their calendar.


It didn't take long for Dailey & Vincent to build a strong following and earn the respect of their peers, collecting nine IBMA nominations in that first year alone, seven of which they won. "We made history," says Dailey. "From what we understand, we were the first group in bluegrass at an award show ever in history to win Entertainer, Vocal Group and Emerging Artist all in the same year. It was quite a feeling and quite a humbling night."


Dailey & Vincent have continued gaining momentum since those formative early days, but they admit their desire to push against boundaries has cost them fans at times. Among their riskier moves was bringing on a full-time drummer – standard practice in most areas of music, but taboo in traditional bluegrass circles.


"It was hard on a lot of the traditionalists and we lost a bunch of them I think through the years," Dailey says. "[But] the people that come to see us for the most part, I believe it is safe to say that 99 percent of them know we do what we do. They know that we are there to try to play the best music that we can and to entertain to our fullest ability and luckily they fill the seats, buy our stuff and continue to support us. They're just music fans. They're not labeling what genre it is."


By the same measure, gospel music is also a key part of their show and a reflection of their faith – something that doesn't always sit too well with others. During one show, the promoter told them she didn't want them to do any gospel music in their set because it might alienate some patrons, but when fans kept calling out requests, they caved and performed Gillian Welch and David Rawlings' "By the Mark." "When we finished it was a full house standing ovation and they wouldn't sit down," Dailey recalls with a smile. "She looked absolutely mortified that they were standing and screaming for more."


"We honored the Lord and what he wanted us to do," adds Vincent. "And looking at those fans, we had to do what they wanted."


Dailey & Vincent's discography reflects the same versatility as their live shows. Their recorded output includes several bluegrass albums, a gospel record (The Gospel Side of Dailey & Vincent), a live album (Alive! In Concert) and a tribute to the Statler Brothers (Dailey & Vincent Sing the Statler Brothers), many of these released through their strategic partnership with Cracker Barrel. The duo's latest album Patriots and Poets – a collection of original songs co-written with Bill Anderson, Jimmy Fortune and others ­– was released last March and features guest appearances by Steve Martin, Doyle Lawson, Bela Fleck, TaRanda Greene and David Rawlings. After several years with venerable indie label Rounder, the duo is currently recording for producer Keith Stegall's Dreamlined Entertainment. They plan for their next album to be a straight-ahead country record.


"Doing a country record makes sense for us," says Vincent. "It's something we haven't done and will be fun for us to do. And when our career is over we can say, 'Hey I was proud of everything we did and we did everything we wanted to do.'"


At least thus far, that's what Dailey & Vincent have done, letting their exceptional musicianship take them down multiple new avenues and reach fans who haven't experienced them before. It's definitely been a road less traveled, but Dailey says he'd encourage anyone else to do the exact same.


"A lot of times young musicians come to us and they ask, 'What do you think we should do? How do we get started?'" Dailey says. "First of all, you can't always listen to everybody around you. You have to listen to yourself, your inner heart. You have to study and be aware. Keep your finger on the pulse of what's going on around you at all times and think through it and know how to react.


"A lot of times you'll hit it," he adds. "Sometimes you'll miss it, but praise the Lord, the two of us, for the most part, have been able to nail it on the head most of the time."

Ceres dancer lives her Dailey and Vincent dream

Popular bluegrass musicians Jamie Dailey and Darrin Vincent made a Bland County girl’s dreams come true when they invited her up on stage to clog during their performance Sunday at the Lincoln Theatre in Marion.

Twelve-year-old Paige Viar of Ceres attended the Dailey and Vincent: Spirit of Christmas Tour with her family. What she didn’t know is that a family friend who knows someone in the band spread the word about how much Paige loves the bluegrass duo.

“I really like their patriotism and their Christian beliefs,” she said. “I just like them.”

Plus, the rhythm and beat of bluegrass music is ideal for clogging. Paige has been clogging with Wytheville’s Appalachian Hoedowners for more than four years.

The seventh-grader said she was surprised when Vincent called out to the audience for her to come on stage.

“I was so shocked that I couldn’t get out of my seat, my Mimi (Katie Gamble of Ceres) had to push me out of my seat,” she said. “I was so excited and felt blessed that I could go up there and do that for them. I just loved doing it.”

To make it even better, she performed to her favorite Dailey and Vincent song, “That Feel Good Music.” The song pays tribute to various bluegrass, country and old-time songs. The video for the song features the duet dancing with cloggers.

Paige said it was fun, yes, but frightening, too, to perform in front of a sold-out crowd, not to mention for Dailey and Vincent.

“It was exciting,” she said. “I was free styling, making up moves as I went.”

After the show, Paige got to meet her idols off stage.

Dailey and Vincent told Paige she did a wonderful job and encouraged her to keep clogging because it’s a lost art.

Paige attends Bland County High School. She is the daughter of Chris and Carman Viar.

“She just kept thanking them for letting her get up there with them,” her mother said. “Paige said it was the best Christmas gift ever.”

Dailey & Vincent Plan "Spirit of Christmas" Tour

NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE — Christmas is a season of tradition, and no one knows that better than Grand Ole Opry stars and multi-Grammy nominees Dailey & Vincent.


“Christmas music has always been some of my favorite music,” said Jamie Dailey.  “Every year we take our brand of Christmas music on the road to select stops on tour and there is no better way to end our tour season than singing Christmas music!”


Beginning on November 30, Dailey & Vincent will bring their treasured Spirit of Christmas Tour to 10 cities, as they explore the humanity and spirituality of the season, diving headfirst into the American heritage of Christmas. (Complete schedule follows)


“Christmas is a season that really does bring out the best in all of us,” said Darrin Vincent. “It’s one of the happiest, most joyful times of the year. We love celebrating the season with our friends and families a holiday that brings us all together and makes us forget petty differences in favor of honoring the love of our Savior Jesus  who came to earth as a baby.”


Riding a wave of critical acclaim for their brand new release, Patriots & Poets, Dailey & Vincent will be backed by one of the best bands on tour today.  Generally regarded among the most reputable and elite entertainers in American music, Dailey & Vincent’s sound is a concoction of traditional country, gospel and bluegrass  blended together by the fantastically instinctive vocal blends of Dailey's tenor and Vincent's reedy harmonies.  


“Stand back or face the force of nature that is this astounding ensemble,” wrote respected critic Robert K. Oermann for Music Row Magazine. “Take it from me, there’s a reason they’ve earned three Grammy nominations, won four Dove Awards, claimed an astounding 35 IBMA honors (including three as Entertainers of the Year) and landed their own show on RFD.”


Bluegrass Today agreed:  “Dailey & Vincent are easily some of the very best entertainers in bluegrass music. They continue to expand their horizons on Patriots & Poets, keeping one foot planted in their bluegrass roots but reaching out to embrace other forms of acoustic-based music.”

Wide Open Country To Premiere Dailey & Vincent's New Video

NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE — When award winning duo Dailey & Vincent filmed their newest video just over six weeks ago, they didn’t realize just how timely it would be.  The popular publication Wide Open Country will premiere the video, “Unsung Heroes,” on Tuesday, October 10 at 10 a.m.  (


Over the past two months, the United States has been slammed by hurricanes in Texas, Florida & Puerto Rico, reeking havoc for people who call those places home.  Those disasters were followed by a gunman in a Las Vegas hotel reigning terror on thousands attending a Country Music concert just a few hundred feet below his room.


“It’s easy to look at these events and lose hope,” said Jamie Dailey, who co-wrote the song with fellow Grand Ole Opry Stars Bill Anderson and Jimmy Fortune of The Statler Brothers. “But in the midst of the horror, strangers began reaching out to one another to help.  In areas hit hard by hurricanes, volunteers came in droves to help the cleanup and the rebuilding of lives.  In Las Vegas, during the shooting, there are countless stories of strangers risking their own lives to save others.  Some people stood in line for 3 — 4 hours to donate blood.  These people did this with no thought except helping one another. They didn’t even expect a thank you. These are our everyday angels.  They are unsung heroes.”


“The cool thing is that you don’t have to wait for a big disaster for these heroes to show up,” echoed Darrin Vincent.  “I live in a small community in Tennessee, and I see it all the time.  People who are suffering one way or the other are raised up by their neighbors who give their time and energy and sometimes money, just to help.  It’s really remarkable how the smallest thing can mean so very much to someone in need. We all have the chance to be one of these heroes.”


The video for “Unsung Heroes,” shot weeks before hurricane Irma hit the Texas coast, was directed by Jennifer Bonior and filmed in Vincent’s hometown of Smithville, Tennessee. It celebrates not only the first responders and military but also the everyday neighbors who reach out to one another. Country Music fans will be pleased to see a cameo in the video from Country star Aaron Tippin.  The single is from Dailey and Vincent’s new album, Patriots & Poets on Dreamlined Entertainment Group/BFD.

Dailey & Vincent Celebrates SOLD-OUT Show at Springer Mountain Farms Bluegrass Nights at the Ryman

Award-Winning Duo Celebrates 10-Year Milestone Plus 125th Anniversary of Historic Ryman Auditorium

NASHVILLE, TENN. – Award-winning American music duo Dailey & Vincent were honored last night at their SOLD-OUT show at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium. The concert was held as part of the 2017 Springer Mountain Farms Bluegrass Nights at the Ryman series, where the chart topping duo were presented with a cake, commemorating 10-years together as a duo, also celebrating the Ryman’s 125th Anniversary. Grand Ole Opry GM Sally Williams was on-hand for the monumental presentation, while also showing photos from Dailey & Vincent’s first show together, which happened to be at the Opry. The event showcased Dailey & Vincent’s dynamic style, shifting from a full band sound to quartet, trio, duo, a capella and beyond.

“Dailey & Vincent have been thrilling audiences for a decade as part of Springer Mountain Farms Bluegrass Nights at the Ryman,” says Grand Ole Opry GM Sally Williams. “It’s no wonder why. They’re the full package – supremely talented musicians, top-notch entertainers and two of the nicest guys around.”

Dailey & Vincent performed several fan-favorites, including new songs from their latest critically-acclaimed project Patriots & Poets. There were a few surprises as well, as country legend Lee Greenwood stunned fans, joining Dailey & Vincent for a rendition of the iconic patriotic smash, “God Bless the U.S.A.”

“The sold out crowd at the Ryman Auditorium for Dailey & Vincent is not only a testimony to their popularity, but also a testimony to the interest in this group,” said WSM’s Eddie Stubbs. “They delivered the goods, getting standing ovation after standing ovation. Fans were royally entertained. Dailey & Vincent truly delivered a show.”

Tennessee State Senate Honors American Music Duo Dailey & Vincent with Senate Resolution 132

American music duo Dailey & Vincent are continuing the celebration of their 10-year anniversary and induction as the newest members of the Grand Ole Opry with a recent honor on the floor of the Tennessee Senate Capitol Building during the final day of the 2017 legislative session. Senator Paul Bailey (R-Sparta) sponsored Senate Resolution 132, which honors the group for their many contributions to the country and state.

“It’s an honor to recognize this talented group here today,” remarked Sen. Bailey. “We are thankful for all they have done as ambassadors for Tennessee to promote job growth and the entertainment industry in our state.”

The Grammy-nominated pair treated Senate members to a performance of the song “I’ll Leave My Heart in Tennessee,” which was met with a standing ovation. The prestigious honor comes after their March 11, 2017 induction into the Grand Ole Opry, on their 101st performance on the legendary stage.

Dailey & Vincent has continued to hit new heights with their latest album, Patriots & Poets. The star-studded project features collaborations with Steve Martin, Doyle Lawson, TaRanda Greene, David Rawlings, and Bela Fleck. So far, the album has been a roaring success, with two songs hitting the Top Five on Bluegrass Today’s Weekly Airplay Chart. The lead single, “Gimme All The Love You Got” spent three weeks in the top spot, while the Bill Anderson co-written track “That Feel Good Music” recently stormed into the Top Five.

Fans can pick up a copy of Patriots & Poets at Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® locations nationwide, iTunes, Amazon and wherever music is sold. The album will also be available at Dailey & Vincent’s upcoming live shows, which include stops at venues and festivals across North American (see dates below). Another way to keep up with Dailey & Vincent is by watching their hit show, “The Dailey & Vincent Show” airing on RFD-TV Friday nights at 7:30pm ET.

Patriots & Poets – Dailey & Vincent

Dailey & Vincent are easily some of the very best entertainers in bluegrass music. In recent years, they’ve added varying styles to their repertoire, incorporating heavy doses of Southern Gospel-style vocal quartets, classic country, and even pop influences. While it may not be bluegrass in its strictest sense, their music is always skillfully executed, with some of the best vocal work in any genre. Their newest album, Patriots & Poets, both builds and expands upon their previous releases, offering good hard-driving bluegrass alongside polished acoustic country tracks. Most listeners will have heard the opening track, Gimme All the Love You Got, which has been burning up the bluegrass airwaves for several months. It both allows the band to show off its finely-honed quartet harmonies and the musicians’ ability to pick at upwards of 180 bpm. Jamie Dailey’s soaring high lead is impressive as ever, and fiery instrumentation from the likes of Andy Leftwich (mandolin), Stuart Duncan (fiddle), Jessie Baker (banjo), and Seth Taylor (guitar) will set heads spinning. Also on the grassy side of things, though with a grittier sound guided by Baker’s banjo, is Bill and Ole Elijah, a well-written prison song with a bit of a twist at the end. Dailey collaborated with Jeffrey East on this tale of two cellmates, one young and one old, debating an escape.

Until We’re Gone has a smooth nineties country feel, sharing the story of a couple whose marriage has survived for many years despite doubts from others. It’s a sweet love song, written by Dailey, Summer McMahan, and Cory Piatt, and performed as duet with Southern Gospel singer TaRanda Greene. No Place Love Won’t Go has a similar vibe, with an uplifting, cheerful melody and the reassuring message that everyone deserves love. Guest banjo from Bela Fleck gives the song a clear, modern sound.

California is reminiscent of early Brad Paisley (bouncy, humorous, country swing), and tells of a man who reluctantly accompanies his wife, an aspiring actress, to the titular state. Steve Martin makes a brief appearance, tossing out a spoken word verse in his trademark tongue-in-cheek style. Stuart Duncan offers some fun Cajun-style fiddle on Baton Rouge, a toe-tapping number about a man trying to make it home to the one he loves. It’s very catchy, with the repeated phrase “I’d walk from Baton Rouge to Birmingham,” and could certainly be very radio friendly.

Additional highlights include the extremely impressive a capella Gospel quartet He’s Been So Good To Me, which offers praises to the Lord, and God’s Love, a traditional number that features Doyle Lawson on mandolin. Another strong track – perhaps the album’s best – is Here Comes the Flood, featuring a sparse arrangement (two guitars, from Bryan Sutton and Dave Rawlings) and haunting vocals. Co-written by Dailey and Karen Staley, it features evocative, vivid lyrics (“Here comes the flood, carrying away years of toil, sweat, and blood. Here comes the flood, all it left were broken hearts and three feet of mud.”) as it shares the far-reaching effects of a devastating natural disaster.

There’s no doubt from anyone that Dailey & Vincent offer top-shelf music, no matter whether they’re honoring the Statler Brothers, singing worshipful Southern Gospel, or diving into rip-roaring bluegrass. They continue to expand their horizons on Patriots & Poets, keeping one foot planted in their bluegrass roots but reaching out to embrace other forms of acoustic-based music. Fans of the group should enjoy it, and the band will likely draw new listeners as well.
