NASHVILLE, Tenn. (March 12, 2017) –
Multi-GRAMMY® nominees and three-time International Bluegrass Music
Association Entertainers of the Year Dailey & Vincent were formally
inducted into the Grand Ole Opry last night by Opry members Old Crow
Medicine Show and Jeannie Seely. The duo had been invited to join the
Opry by Marty Stuart during their 100th Opry appearance in December.

Seely,
who will celebrate 50 years of Opry membership later this year,
presented an Opry Member Award to Jamie Dailey, while Old Crow lead
singer Ketch Secor did the same for Darrin Vincent.

“I
had the honor of introducing Dailey & Vincent for their first Opry
appearance,” Seely began. “I thought to myself that night, ‘I hope one
day I get to see them become members of the Opry one day because they
epitomize everything the Opry is on stage and off.’”

“They
honor the traditions and respect their elders, but most of all they
entertain,” Secor said. “Tonight they join the ranks of country music’s
greatest entertainers. … Welcome Dailey & Vincent to the first
family of country music.”

“We
love the Grand Ole Opry. It’s in our DNA,” Dailey said as he and
Vincent recognized family, friends, their band, and members of their
organization who’d helped make the night possible. The duo closed their
Opry segment with “I’ll Go To My Grave Loving You,” a hit by one of
their musical heroes, The Statler Brothers.

“We
are very excited to welcome Dailey & Vincent into the fold,” said
Opry General Manager Sally Williams. “Jamie Dailey and Darrin Vincent
have been proclaimed the best in their field across the board, winning
awards and media acclaim for their songs, their musicianship, and their
one-of-a-kind live performances. Over the past 10 years and more than
100 Opry visits, they’ve brought crowds to their feet both with country,
bluegrass, and gospel standards as well as their brand new material. We
look forward to Dailey & Vincent being active, beloved Opry members
as the Opry looks toward the century mark and beyond.”

Among
artists scheduled to play the Opry later this month are Opry members
Charlie Daniels Band, Del McCoury Band, Rascal Flatts, and Carrie
Underwood, along with special guests Brandy Clark, Chris Janson, The
Mavericks, and Scotty McCreery. Opry Country Classics continues
throughout the spring at the Ryman Auditorium with upcoming Spotlight
Artist appearances by Brenda Lee, Lorrie Morgan, Oak Ridge Boys, Tanya
Tucker, and more.
