Dailey & Vincent

If Bill Monroe is the father of bluegrass music, then Dailey & Vincent and their fine group are all his grandchildren.

Guitarist and vocalist Jamie Dailey in partnership with upright bassist-vocalist Darrin Vincent have made a big splash on the national bluegrass scene since they hooked up together in Nashville just a few years ago. The boys have racked up a ton of awards and released three CDs to critical acclaim.

Paying their dues and honing their craft – Dailey as a member of Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver and Vincent as a member of Ricky Skaggs’ Kentucky Thunder – these two veteran Nashville cats have combined their road-tested talents to form a bluegrass super-group under their own names. They even got Cracker Barrel to sponsor their current tour and their latest CD tribute to the Statler Brothers.

Not bad for a new act who released their debut album just a couple of years ago.

And there’s no better proof of that than Nippertown’s own pickin’ & singin’ siblings, the Gibson Brothers.
