I'm very humbled to see our Dailey and Vincent – ALIVE in Concert Cracker Barrel Ole Country Store release debut at #1! Thank you to all of you who have bought and believe in us. And huge thanks to Cracker Barrel, Springer Mountain Farms, and our other supporters” said Jamie Dailey of the achievement.

The duo kicked off their album launch week at the Grand Ole Opry where they performed favorites off the new album, “Mississippi River,” “Leave my Heart in Tennessee,” and the heart-warming patriotic piece “American Pride,” where they received a standing ovation from the packed house.

This the third Dailey & Vincent CD to be released exclusively with Cracker Barrel Old Country Store, following the successful "Dailey & Vincent Sing the Statler Brothers" and "The Gospel Side of Dailey & Vincent" projects.

The live concert performance made its broadcast debut on presenting station Nashville Public Television (NPT) on Dec. 17, 2014 and generated many contributions to the station. It will be broadcast to more than 64% of the country on public television stations nationwide during the next two years, thanks to the underwriting of Cracker Barrel Old Country Store and other sponsors.

“It's a sweet celebration today with our #1 position,” said Darrin Vincent. “Thank you to our underwriters: Cracker Barrel, Springer Mountain Farms, the Hylton Performing Arts Center, and the Niswonger Performing Arts Center. I've been very emotional wishing I could share this moment with a couple of hereo's and inspirations in my life, Don Light our first manager and my father Johnny Vincent, who two days after recording ALIVE! took sick and past away a few weeks later. I'm so thankful for all your encouraging words, and support of Dailey & Vincent. And one last thank you to our management team at APEX Entertainment Management for your brilliant talents, and to all of our band members. You are all a tremendous blessing, and to Jamie Dailey my brother, can it get any better.”

Dubbed by CMT as the "Rockstars of Bluegrass," the Dailey & Vincent duo has been hailed throughout the music industry as one of the most exciting, reputable and elite Bluegrass bands in America. They have received numerous awards and nominations for their uniquely contagious and riveting music, including: three GRAMMY nominations, 14 International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) Awards (including three Entertainer of the Year Awards, three Vocal Group of the Year Awards and one Album of the Year Award) and four Dove Awards (including the Bluegrass Album of the Year Award and Bluegrass Song of the Year Award.)

2014 was a record year for Dailey & Vincent with a GRAMMY nomination for Bluegrass Album of the Year, a first-time performance at Carnegie Hall in June, their Second Dailey & Vincent Festival in Denton, NC in September, and their very first headlining cruise (which sold out and set sail February 14, 2015).

Prior to forming the duo in 2007, both Jamie Dailey and Darrin Vincent were already seasoned veterans in the Bluegrass world, having garnered great personal success. A four-time IBMA Vocalist of the Year Award winner, Dailey sang and performed with groups such as Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver. Vincent has accumulated five GRAMMY Awards, has been voted Bluegrass Bass Player of the Year four years in a row (2009-20012), and is a former, ten-year band member for the GRAMMY Award-winning Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder. Both have performed alongside famous acts such as Dolly Parton, Vince Gill, Emmylou Harris and more. The duo performs over 120 shows per year with an 85% sell-out rate in the United States and presently resides at No. 34 on Pollstar’s “Concert Pulse.”

Dailey and Vincent will hold their 2016 WaterFest Cruise on Feb. 14-20, 2016. The cruise to the Western Caribbean will feature performances from Dailey & Vincent, Ricky Skaggs, Jimmy Fortune, and more.
