One of todays most celebrated bluegrass duos is without doubt Dailey and Vincent. They have been nominated for several Grammy Awards and are multiple IBMA award recipients; a duo of modern-day Bluegrass pioneers with their own brand of hard-driving bluegrass, soulful ballads and compelling Gospel duets.
Both Jamie Dailey and Darrin Vincent started out playing and singing at a very young age with their families who were always playing and singing in their houses as they were growing up; indeed, both Jamie and Daren tell us that each of their fathers were the primary influence in their early musical development.
When asked for a quote on their new album Darrin Vincent responds:
Our goal for the past few years was to write an album. God, family and country are three of the most important and treasures in our life. We hope these songs will encourage, and bring comfort – Darrin Vincent.
In addition to celebrating 10 years together as a duo, they’re exploring new boundaries while also going back to their bluegrass roots on Patriots & Poets, which features collaborations with Steve Martin, Doyle Lawson, TaRanda Greene, David Rawlings, and Bela Fleck.
Dailey and Vincent continue to set the standard for which all modern-day Bluegrass artists are measured by – Billboard.
