Dailey & Vincent Coming to the Paramount

January 08, 2011
Multi-award winning bluegrass duo, Daily & Vincent are coming to the Paramount Center for the Arts on Friday, January 8 at 7:30 p.m. Jamie Dailey and Darrin Vincent became the most heralded new act in the bluegrass music field in 2008, as their debut album and busy tour schedule introduced them to wildly appreciative audiences. Their first recording, Dailey & Vincent, was #1 on Billboard’s Top Bluegrass Albums chart, as well as the Bluegrass Unlimited and Bluegrass Music Profiles album charts, and it yielded the #1 singles “By the Mark,” “More Than a Name on a Wall” and “Sweet Carrie.” It was named Album of the Year, one of seven awards the group took home in an unprecedented feat at the 2008 International Bluegrass Music Awards Show. Never before had an act been named Entertainer and Emerging Artist in the same year, an honor that both humbles and challenges the duo. As Darrin said during one of their acceptance speeches at the awards show, “We’re going to give 100% to bring you the best bluegrass music we can.”
