– After a highly successful 2008, which saw the release of their debut, Dailey & Vincent are readying their second studio release for Rounder Records. "Brothers From Different Mothers," featuring 12 tracks produced by the duo, hits stores on March 31, 2009.
"We've been working extremely hard over the last couple months to finish recording, mixing and mastering this new record, in between tour dates," said Darrin Vincent. "We really feel like we've found a great variety of material - songs that fit us and what we've done, while taking several steps forward."
"This is a really exciting time for us," said Jamie Dailey. "While we're looking ahead to the plans we have for the album release and to our tour schedule for 2009, we're still overwhelmed and counting all of our blessings from 2008."
In October, Dailey & Vincent captured seven International Bluegrass Music Awards. In addition to Entertainer of the Year, they received awards for Vocal Group of the Year, Album of the Year (for "Dailey & Vincent"), Gospel Recorded Performance of the Year (for By the Mark), Emerging Artist of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year (Dailey) and Recorded Event of the Year, for Vincent's participation in the "Everett Lilly & Everybody and Their Brother" project. No other artist has ever won Emerging Artist and Entertainer in the same year.
Dailey & Vincent's first concert date was on Jan. 5 at Jekyll Island, Ga. They performed more than 130 dates in 2008, wrapping up the year in Pigeon Forge, Tenn., at the Larkin Family Festival on Dec. 12; and in Berryville, Va. as part of the Berryville Bluegrass Series on Dec. 13. The duo already has 100 dates on the books for their Rolling Your Way Tour 2009.
