END EXTRAORDINARY YEAR WITH A TOP MUSIC HONOR,
PRIME CHART POSITION AND A NEW BOOKING DEAL WITH CAA
2013 HOLDS MORE PROMISE WITH RELEASE
OF ANXIOUSLY-AWAITED NEW ALBUM
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (January 3, 2013) – Last year delivered a wealth of
accomplishments for Jamie Dailey and Darrin Vincent; the duo known as Dailey & Vincent celebrated five years in 2012. Their current release The Gospel Side of Dailey & Vincent
(Cracker Barrel/Rounder Records) secured the group its second GRAMMY®
nomination this time for “Bluegrass Album of the Year” (Awards to be
held February 10, 2013) and landed at the top of Billboard’s year-end review as the #3 Bluegrass Album of 2012.
This release marked the duo’s first Gospel album and debuted at #1 on
Billboard’s Bluegrass Albums Chart a week following its January 9, 2012,
launch. Music critics responded in kind:
“…a Spirit-filled tour de force of hair-raising vocal harmony that crosses Bill Monroe with Bill Gaither…” – Country Weekly
Dailey & Vincent toured throughout the country last year,
performing over 115 shows with nearly half of them sold-out, including
several high-profile and prestigious events with the Grand Ole Opry, the
Gospel Music Hall of Fame, the ACM Honors, the BMI Awards and the IBMA
Awards. Their tour schedule will continue to expand as Dailey &
Vincent have signed an exclusive booking agreement with CAA, one of the
world’s top talent agencies.
The three-time International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA)
Entertainers of the Year and Vocal Group of the Year winners are active
in giving back to the community. The duo founded The Dailey &
Vincent Helping Hands Fund, administered through the Cookeville Regional
Medical Foundation, a 501©(3) organization in Tennessee. It exists to
provide financial assistance to disadvantaged children of Tennessee’s
Jackson and DeKalb counties to meet immediate medical, nutritional and
educational needs not covered by insurance or other means. They helped
raise over $25,000 during their September 2012 concert which brought the
total monetary contribution to over $80,000 since Helping Hands’
inception in 2010.
Dailey & Vincent will release their new album, Brother of the Highway, (Rounder Records) in March 2013.
