Once again back by popular demand! Bluegrass music veterans Jamie Dailey and Darrin Vincent are coming back to Bristol! The new members of the Grand Ole Opry have been performing together for nearly 20 years and always give a memorable performance when they’re on The Paramount stage.
Jamie Dailey was formerly the lead vocalist and guitarist for Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver from 1999-2008. Darrin Vincent was formerly a musician with Ricky Skaggs’ band Kentucky Thunder, and was also part of the famous bluegrass family group The Sally Mountain Show, with his sister Rhonda Vincent of Rhonda Vincent & The Rage. In 2003, the longtime friends and colleagues were asked to perform on a Koch Records recording titled Christmas Grass Vol.2, 2004. Dailey & Vincent recorded a well-known Christmas song, “Beautiful Star of Bethlehem,” with just a guitar, a mandolin and their two voices. Their stirring version of the song rose to No. 1 on the Prime Cuts of Bluegrass. The song’s success prompted the duo’s decision to perform together more often and perhaps even record again. Bluegrass music’s newest duo, Dailey & Vincent, was born.
