Nashville, TN -- Last week was a special evening as the "Rockstars of Bluegrass" (dubbed by CMT), Dailey & Vincent, as they celebrated their 90th performance at The Grand Ole Opry during the Opry’s 90th Birthday Celebration. In light of such milestones, Dailey & Vincent took the stage with Country music mainstay Dierks Bentley, who was celebrating his 10th anniversary as an Opry member. They shared their love for Bluegrass with a collaborative performance of "Rovin' Gambler."
Following the performances, the award-winning duo headed to the Opry Shop to sign copies of their DVD, Dailey & Vincent - ALIVE! In Concert, which debuted at #2 across all genres on the Billboard Music Video Sales Chart following the Foo Fighters.
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, having won numerous awards for their uniquely contagious and riveting music, including: three Grammy Award Nominations including nomination for the 2014 “Bluegrass Album of the Year;” 14 IBMA Awards (International Bluegrass Music Awards) as three-time “Entertainer of the Year,” three-time “Vocal Group of the Year” and “Album of the Year” and four Dove Awards with three “Bluegrass Album of the Year” awards and “Bluegrass Song of the Year.”
The Dailey & Vincent Show premiered on Saturday, September 5, 2015 for a 26-episode run through the end of August 2016. This weekly 30-minute music, entertainment, and lifestyle show - chock-full of music, humor and fun - will include live performances by Dailey & Vincent and special guest artists, as well as cooking and interview segments.
