NASHVILLE, TENN.  (October 20, 2010)—Dailey & Vincent, who recently claimed their third consecutive Entertainer of the Year title at the International Bluegrass Music Awards, are proud to announce that renowned studio veteran Garth Fundis will produce their next album for Rounder Records, to be released in early 2011.
 
“We’re incredibly excited to begin working with Garth on our new record,” says Jamie Dailey.  “He’s produced some of the best music from artists we love and respect, like Don Williams, Trisha Yearwood and Keith Whitley.”
 
Adds Darrin Vincent,  “We’re honored to welcome Garth to our team, and we can’t wait to begin the song search and to work in the studio.”
 
“I’m pleased and honored to have been invited aboard the Dailey & Vincent team for their next recording project,” says Fundis.  “I look forward to exploring the possibilities and building upon the substantial reputation they have quickly established. These are very talented people!  Darrin, Jamie and I are putting our collective experiences into one great collaborative effort.  Stay tuned!”
 
“It’s exciting for us to be working with Dailey & Vincent, who just keep coming up with new ideas for their next recording projects,” says Rounder Founder Ken Irwin.  “When they decided they wanted to work with a producer on their next album, Garth Fundis was the first name we all thought of.  Garth has a well-deserved reputation for getting the best out of great singers and having a great ear for good songs, so working with him seemed like the logical next step forward for these guys.”
 
In addition to Entertainer of the Year, Dailey & Vincent recently took home their third consecutive IBMA Award for Vocal Group of the Year.  They also received the Album of the Year award for their Cracker Barrel exclusive, Dailey & Vincent Sing the Statler Brothers.  The 12-song tribute to the beloved quartet debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top Bluegrass Albums chart, where it spent 9 weeks at #1 and was in the top 3 for 19 weeks.  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.
 
Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® is proud to announce its support of the Dailey & Vincent Front Porch Tour.  To maintain their heavy touring schedule (over 125 dates in 2010), Dailey & Vincent travel the country in their Prevost bus, which has been wrapped with specially designed Cracker Barrel signage.  They continue to include a Cracker Barrel segment in their shows, featuring tracks from Dailey & Vincent Sing the Statler Brothers.
 
Jamie Dailey was the former lead singer and guitarist for Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, while Darrin Vincent was guitar and mandolin player and harmony vocalist with Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder.  The New York Times called Dailey & Vincent “the most celebrated new bluegrass act of the last few years.”  A Wall Street Journal feature on Dailey & Vincent (“A Bluegrass Duo Reigns Again”) began with, “A new dynasty may be taking shape in bluegrass music.”  Completing Dailey & Vincent’s lineup are Jeff Parker on mandolin; Joe Dean on banjo, guitar and mandolin; Jesse Stockman on fiddle; and Christian Davis on bass vocals and guitar.
 
In 2008 Dailey & Vincent 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.  They have released three albums in addition to Dailey & Vincent Sing the Statler Brothers—Dailey & Vincent, which was IBMA Album of the Year in 2008, Brothers From Different Mothers, and Singing From the Heart, an all a cappella collection benefiting the Tennessee Bible College.   Dailey & Vincent maintain a heavy touring schedule, with over 125 shows booked for 2010.   They are also regular guests on the Grand Ole Opry.   On October 2 they hosted their inaugural homecoming concert in Gainesboro, Tennessee, which raised over $31,000 for the Dailey & Vincent Helping Hands Fund to help underprivileged children in Jackson and DeKalb Counties in Tennessee.

Dailey & Vincent Plan Inaugural Homecoming Charity Concert

Written by Rhonda on August 13, 2010 – 2:41 pm -

 
NASHVILLE, TENN. — IBMA Entertainers of the Year Dailey & Vincent are proud to announce their inaugural homecoming charity concert to raise money for the newly formed Dailey & Vincent Fund.  Tickets are on sale now for the concert, which is scheduled for Saturday, October 2, at 5:00 p.m. at the Jackson County High School Football Field in Gainesboro, Tennessee.  Proceeds will go directly to the newly formed Dailey & Vincent Fund, administered through the Cookeville Regional Medical Center Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization.
 
The Dailey & Vincent Fund exists to provide financial assistance to disadvantaged children of Jackson and DeKalb Counties to meet immediate medical, nutritional and educational needs not covered by insurance or other means, while acknowledging the God-given gifts, potential and dignity of each child.
 
Concert tickets are $15 and are available in Cookeville at the Tennessee Bible College; in Gainesboro at Jackson Bank & Trust or by calling J.B. Dailey (931-268-0438) or Fred Heady (931-644-0391); in Livingston by calling Judith Nevins (931-403-6191) or Johnny Painter (931-704-0144); and in Smithville at Cantrell Furniture and Webb’s Drug Store, or by calling Julie Vincent (615-418-5759).  Tickets are also available online at www.daileyvincent.com and will be sold on the day of the concert in the Gainesboro town square.
 
Those attending the concert need to bring lawn chairs. The first 1,000 tickets sold will be accompanied by preferred parking privileges at the football field. Additional free parking will be off-site with shuttle service provided to the concert. In the event of inclement weather, the concert will be moved indoors.  No refunds will be issued.
 
Fans of award-winning bluegrass duo Dailey & Vincent know that they take their music seriously.   It’s also obvious that they believe strongly in giving back—to their community, their industry and their fans, as first seen with the release of Singing From the Heart, a CD that helped raise fund for Tennessee Bible College.  Now, Jamie Dailey and Darrin Vincent are taking it a step further with the formation of their own charitable fund and an annual homecoming charity concert.
 
Dailey & Vincent signed with Rounder Records in 2007 and released their self-titled debut in 2008.  They are the reigning International Bluegrass Music Association Entertainers of the Year and Vocal Group of the Year, taking home the coveted trophies in 2008 and 2009.  They are the only bluegrass act ever to win IBMA’s Emerging Artist and Entertainer of the Year awards in the same year (2008).  Their current release, Dailey & Vincent Sing the Statler Brothers, features bluegrass versions of 12 of the Statlers’ most-loved hits and is available exclusively at Cracker Barrel Old Country Store and www.crackerbarrel.com.  The album debuted at #1 on the Billboard Bluegrass Albums chart, where it has spent nine weeks at #1 and 19 weeks in the top 3.  It also debuted at #19 on the Billboard Country Albums chart.  The album, as well as lead track “Flowers on the Wall,” were the most-played on Sirius XM’s Bluegrass Junction during the month of June.  More information on Dailey & Vincent, including tour dates, is available at www.daileyvincent.com.
