Thanks to Haven Hester for the photos from tonight’s concert in Bremen, Georgia.

Dailey & Vincent is one of the top Bluegrass bands in America. From the very beginning of their partnership in late 2007, Jamie Dailey and Darrin Vincent were rapidly embraced by Bluegrass, Country, and Gospel music fans around the world. The concoction of their fantastically powerful vocal blends, 4 awardwinning studio albums, and heavy touring schedule places them in a very elite group of talent: recognized by the music industry as 3-time IBMA Entertainer of The Year, 3- time IBMA Vocal Group of the Year, 2-time Grammy nominee (Bluegrass Album of the Year and Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group), and Dove Award winners.

Establishing themselves as fresh voices in their genre, Dailey & Vincent, accompanied by their world-class band, are a perennial favorite on the touring and festival circuit: playing over 115 shows per year to sold out crowds.

Change For Dailey & Vincent

Change For Dailey & Vincent

Good day everyone! Darrin and I would like to make somewhat of a sad but yet exciting announcement. As most all of you know, bands members come and go from time to time. Though Darrin and I always try to embrace change it doesn’t necessarily mean it’s always easy for us. After five and a half years our friend Christian Davis is departing our band. Christian will be pursuing a solo career and with his voice and talent we expect big things for him. He has been a blessing to us and we have enjoyed singing every note with him. You can check out for all of his career information. We encourage you to support he and his family and we know you will.

We are very excited to announce our newest member of Dailey Vincent. His name is Aaron McCune. Aaron hails from Clay West Virginia but he and his wife now make their home in Southern Illinois. Aaron has filled in for Richard Sterban of the Oak Ridge Boys, he has sang for Wynonna and Willie Nelson. He sang for Gold City Quartet for five years and became a bass singing star with in the gospel community. Aaron grew up playing bluegrass with his family and friends and plays the guitar with a thumb pick. Lester Flatt is one of Aaron’s heroes. Though he hasn’t played in a few years he’s working hard on getting brushed up and ready to play again. Aaron will make his debut at our Land Fest this coming weekend in Denton North Carolina. Please join us in making Aaron feel welcomed into our D&V family!

Songwriters Ernie Haase, Wayne Haun and Joel Lindsey also received awards for composing the song.

To say I am beyond excited is an understatement,” exclaimed Devin McGlamery. “All I’ve ever wanted to do was sing Gospel music. To be honored by my peers with a Dove Award is extremely humbling. I praise Jesus Christ, my Savior, for all His blessings!”

Ernie Haase commented: “I met Devin McGlamery as a young teenager who wanted to do this more than anything! I knew then that one day, he would achieve great things. I am very proud of him.”

“It was an honor for our group to pay tribute to one of my personal mentors and friends,” shared Ernie Haase. “For years Bill Gaither has invested into the lives of others and it was a very special moment to be able to pay a small tribute to the man who has done so much for Gospel music and the kingdom. We love Bill Gaither!”

For a full list of GMA Gospel Music Hall of Fame Members click here.


Although born in soul’s capitol city, Memphis. The Franklin family soon moved to Detroit, MI, where her father, Baptist minister Reverend C. L. Franklin, soon became one of the most revered public figures in black America. During her late preteens, Franklin was regularly singing solo numbers in her father’s New Bethel Baptist Church. She grew up with local and national celebrities visiting in her family home, including gospel greats Albertina Walker and her group The Caravans, Mahalia Jackson and Clara Ward, three women who played a pivotal role in her vocal development.

In 1972, she released the gospel album Amazing Grace. The album eventually became her biggest-selling release ever, selling over two million copies and becoming the best-selling gospel album of all time. In 1987 she again returned to her gospel roots with the album, One Lord, One Faith, One Baptism, which though it did not repeat the success of Amazing Grace despite a powerful rendition of “Oh Happy Day”, featuring Mavis Staples, but did reach the Top 10 of Billboard’s gospel chart.

Rolling Stone magazine ranked her atop its list of The Greatest Singers of All Time as well as the ninth greatest artist of all time. She has won 18 competitive Grammys and two honorary Grammys. She has 20 #1 singles on the Billboard R&B Singles Chart and two #1 hits on the Billboard Hot 100: “Respect” (1967) and “I Knew You Were Waiting (For Me)” (1987), Since 1961, she has scored a total of 45 Top 40 hits on the Billboard Hot 100. She also has the most million-selling singles of any female artist. Between 1967 and 1982 she had 10 #1 R&B albums—more than any other female artist. In 1987, Aretha became the first female artist to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. She was the only featured singer at the 2009 Presidential Inauguration.

Dallas has earned his influence in today’s Christian music throughout more than 40 years of writing, singing and ministry in some 4,000 concerts in every state in the USA as well as many countries abroad.  His 38 recordings have garnered gold records, multiple Dove awards, Grammy nominations, number one songs, and countless accolades.

Artists such as Steven Curtis Chapman, Twila Paris and Greg Long of Avalon all make reference to Holm’s significant impact on their lives and ministries.  Holm can be seen on several of the Bill Gaither Homecoming videos.  On one video Gaither introduces Dallas by saying, “This is one of the nicest guys in our entire industry.”  This broad appeal and respect by peers has undoubtedly been one of the reasons for Holm’s amazing longevity and relevance. They became the first Contemporary Christian band to receive an RIAA certified Gold Album for Dallas Holm and Praise LIVE.

The Hoppers GMA Gospel Music Hall of FameTHE HOPPERS
Multi-award winning family group The Hoppers have been singing to global audiences for over 55 years with appearances ranging from presidential religious inaugural ceremonies and New York’s Carnegie Hall to singing conventions and church platforms.  They have performed throughout the United States as well as in Israel, Europe and Africa. Their unique blend of harmonies and song choices have created a legacy of musical excellence embraced by leading pastors and event organizers. Known as America’s Favorite Family of Gospel Music, they are favorites on the Gaither Homecoming videos and tours, and their recordings frequently land at the top of the BILLBOARD sales charts and The Singing News radio charts.

Comprised today of family members Claude & Connie, son Dean and his wife, Kim, and son Mike Hopper, The Hoppers were formed in 1957 in the rural-farm town of Madison, NC, and have grown continuously for decades, touching countless lives around the world. A cancer survivor, Connie has been honored with the prestigious Marvin Norcross Award, in addition to numerous industry and fan honors; and she has been inducted into the Southern Gospel Music Hall of Fame. Sons Dean and Mike have continued the family legacy with their musical talents and business abilities; and Kim, Dean’s wife, hails from her own nationally acclaimed musical family, The Greenes. She is noted for the excitement she brings to any live performance, and her unmistakable, rafter-ringing soprano vocals have taken The Hoppers to new heights for many years.

In 1932, Rex Humbard did his first radio program on KTHS Radio, Hot Springs, Arkansas; at the age of 13. His father, Alpha Rex Emanuel Humbard, ran an orphanage and church in downtown Hot Springs. In the midst of the Great Depression, church attendance was poor and offerings for the orphanage suffered greatly. Rex did his radio program every week, singing, playing his guitar and telling the listeners about his father’s church. One year later the seats were full to capacity and the orphans had a new lease on life. From that time forward, Rex Humbard realized the power of the media and the importance of the “life changing” message contained in gospel music.

From 1945 through 1952 (during the war years), Rex and his wife, Maude Aimee, traveled to every section of the USA and Canada conducting tent crusade meetings. In each of these cities they purchased radio time and appeared daily singing gospel music and promoting the tent crusades. In 1949, Rex did his first TV show in Indianapolis, Indiana on the local CBS station. Once again, gospel music was the center piece of the program.

The Rex Humbard Ministry program ran from 1952 to 1985. In the early 1970’s, Time Magazine did a feature story on Rex Humbard and coined the phrase “tele-evangelist” to describe Rex. In 1999, Rex was named as “one of the 25 shapers of the 20th century” by US News and World Report because of his visionary use of the media to promote his message of hope, love and salvation. One of the most vital parts of his ministry was gospel music.

In the early 70’s, during the beginnings of what became known as the “Jesus Movement,” a group of young, longhaired, “hippie” musicians called LOVE SONG began to use their music to express their newfound faith in Jesus Christ. A mixture of rock and pop, LOVE SONG’s music was entirely new and unique for the Christian music world.

The music was fresh, sometimes radical, and yet truly inspirational for a generation of young people searching for truth. It helped blaze the path for what we know today as Contemporary Christian Music. They flourished amidst the swirl of national media attention from top record labels and interviews with magazines including ROLLING STONE. God used them in a powerful way to bring many people to Himself. “In a world of imitators, Love Song has been an originator, the first domino that started the others going”

Fourteen-time Grammy Award winner and two-time Dove Awards winner, Ricky Skaggs, is affectionately known as one of bluegrass music’s most recognized ambassadors. Singing comes naturally to Skaggs, and singing Gospel songs even more so.  At the tender age of 3, he began by harmonizing with his mother as she sang Gospel songs.  He began to perform in his church, singing with his parents there.  His illustrious path to stardom has always included Gospel songs, as he loves to sing about Jesus and His love for all of us.

From there, Skaggs went on to put his own stamp on the mainstream country and bluegrass formats, resulting in twelve #1 hits, eight Country Music Association Awards and eight Academy of Country Music Awards. 1997 marked Ricky Skaggs’ triumphant return to bluegrass and the establishment of his own Skaggs Family Records label, which has gone on to break new sales records in the genre. Now in his 40th year as a professional musician, he continues to record and tour with his band Kentucky Thunder as one of music’s most sought after live performers.

LEBANON, TENN.  —Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® and Dailey & Vincent are pleased to celebrate the #1 debut of Dailey & Vincent Sing the Statler Brothers on the Billboard Top Bluegrass Albums chart (issue date February 20).  The album also entered the Billboard Top Country Albums chart at #19, earning the Hot Shot Debut and marking the duo’s first top-20 debut on that chart.  The album has landed the #1 spot on the Heatseekers Albums chart, for artists who have never appeared in the top 100 of the Billboard 200, or the top 10 of R&B/HipHop, Country, Latin, Christian or Gospel Albums charts.  It is also at #120 on the overall Billboard 200.
The twelve-song CD, now available exclusively at Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® and online at, features Dailey & Vincent’s new bluegrass interpretations of classic Statler Brothers songs.
“We are thrilled beyond belief about the response to this album,” said Jamie Dailey.  “It’s further evidence of the timelessness of these great songs.”
“We are so thankful to our fans who went out and purchased the CD,” Darrin Vincent continued, “and to Statler Brothers fans who love the music like we do and took a chance on us.”

“Cracker Barrel congratulates Dailey & Vincent on this great achievement,” said Peter Keiser, Cracker Barrel’s Vice President of Marketing. “Debuting at #1 on the Billboard Bluegrass Albums chart clearly demonstrates that these talented performers are a great fit with Cracker Barrel’s guests. We see this achievement as another important moment in the growth of Cracker Barrel’s role as a non-traditional music retailer,” he added.
The chart-topping debut wraps up an incredible week for Dailey & Vincent, who celebrated the album’s release with a party at the Country Music Hall of Fame® & Museum on February 3.  The Statler Brothers themselves, along with other top names including Ricky Skaggs, Bill Gaither, Ralph Emery, Duane Allen, Joe Bonsall, Ronnie and Rob McCoury, Steve Wariner, Rounder Records co-founder Ken Irwin and Ronnie Bowman, were on hand to congratulate Jamie and Darrin and to cheer on their performance of several songs from the album.

Music critic and historian Robert K. Oermann described Dailey & Vincent’s performance at the party for Music Row, saying, “ . . . the group performed flawlessly. Make that sensationally. People were screaming and shouting at them after every song.”
“They’ve done a great thing,” Statler Don Reid told the Staunton News-Leader in an interview. “They’re true to the arrangements and lyrics. We’re touched by their talent, character and intentions.”
Dailey & Vincent also made an in-store appearance at the Cracker Barrel location in Cookeville, Tennessee, on February 4, performing songs from the album before signing copies for their fans.  On February 5 and 6, they performed two sold-out concerts at Avery Trace Middle School in Cookeville.  On February 1 they appeared on Ralph Emery Live on RFD-TV and joined WSM’s Eddie Stubbs for an in-studio visit.  They returned to WSM for a visit with Bill Cody on February 5.
On Sunday, February 7, Dailey & Vincent won four SPBGMA Bluegrass Awards—Vocal Group of the Year, Gospel Group of the Year/Contemporary, Male Vocalist of the Year/Contemporary for Jamie Dailey, and Bass Fiddle Performer of the Year for Darrin Vincent.
Initial reviews of Dailey & Vincent Sing the Statler Brothers have been overwhelmingly positive, including:
“Dailey & Vincent not only are singing 12 Statler Brothers tunes, but they’ve filtered these classic and mostly well-known tunes into their bluegrass filter and the results are, in a word: stunning.”                                                                            
“ . . . a tour de force exhibition of stunning interpretive singing and emotionally riveting musicianship . . .”                                                                           
Other upcoming media appearances and interviews for the duo include:  a Country Weekly feature in the February 22 issue, on stands February 15; Sirius XM Track-by-Track with Kyle Cantrell, premiering on February 24 on Bluegrass Junction (Sirius 65, XM 14); and on February 27, The Marty Stuart Show on RFD-TV at 8:00 p.m. (EST), as well as the Grand Ole Opry.
Dailey & Vincent have taken the bluegrass world by storm since they launched their career as a duo in 2007 and signed with Rounder Records. Jamie Dailey was formerly the lead singer and guitarist for Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver; until the end of 2007, Darrin Vincent was guitar and mandolin player and harmony vocalist with Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder. In addition to being named Entertainer of the Year, Dailey & Vincent received 2009 IBMA awards for Vocal Group of the Year and Gospel Recorded Performance of the Year, for “On the Other Side.”  Their latest success follows an incredible run in 2008 when they took home seven IBMA awards, becoming the first act in the history of the IBMA awards to be named Entertainer of the Year and Emerging Artist in the same year.
