Dailey & Vincent pay tribute to The Statlers

Wednesday, January 6, 2010 – Dailey & Vincent cite The Statler Brothers as a key influence, and now they're going to take it one step further by releasing their 12-sonbg tribute "Dailey & Vincent Sing The Statler Brothers," available exclusively at Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® on Feb. 1.

Jamie Dailey and Darrin Vincent previously recorded their take of some Statler songs and include a few in their live show. In 2008, they performed at the medallion ceremony marking the Statlers' official induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame. Dailey & Vincent's self-titled debut on Rounder Records included their version of the Statlers' hit More Than a Name on a Wall, which topped the Sirius bluegrass chart in 2008. Their "Brothers From Different Mothers" CD included Years Ago and There is You from the Statlers' catalog, along with a special guest appearance by Statler Harold Reid in his alter ego of Lester "Roadhog Moran on Head Hung Down, which spent two months at number one on the Bluegrass Unlimited song chart.

"The Statler Brothers are my childhood heroes," says Dailey. "My daddy bought me a Statler Brothers record in 1983, and I went to bed every night listening to that record. I knew every word to every song. We're delighted to work with Cracker Barrel on this project because we pull our bus into a Cracker Barrel every weekend; that's where we have breakfast and lunch.

"The Statlers have given so much to America through their music," adds Vincent. "Some of those lyrics are just so powerful, like The Class of '57. It's all about America. It's an honor to record these classic songs and share them with Cracker Barrel's guests.

The Statler Brothers themselves support Dailey & Vincent and the album. "Jamie and Darrin have used their magic touch to honor us and our music," says Statler Don Reid. "This CD is one great tribute from two great friends. Dailey and Vincent - they are what good music and friendship is about today."

The Statler Brothers played for almost four decades until their retirement in 2002. They are one of only six acts to be inducted into both the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Gospel Music Hall of Fame, writing and recording iconic songs about small-town life, love, faith and days gone by.

Songs on the CD are:

Flowers on the Wall

The Class of '57

Hello Mary Lou

Too Much on My Heart

Susan When She Tried

I'll Go To My Grave Loving You


Bed of Rose's

Do You Know You Are My Sunshine? "Brave Apostles Twelve

My Only Love

Thank You World

CD reviews for Dailey & Vincent

CD review - The Sounds Of Christmas With "The Sounds of Christmas," Dailey & Vincent gift us with an honest-to-goodness country Christmas album. It's tough to find honest-to-goodness country music - let alone Christmas country - but this duo's bluegrass and gospel grounding give their album deep roots. Dolly Parton's big presence on "Road to Bethlehem" adds a sweet touch, even though the new song shares a melody with Bruce Springsteen's "One Step Up." It's one of a few new ...
CD review - Patriots & Poets From time to time an album comes along with exactly the right message and meaning at exactly the right time - "Patriots & Poets" is one of those albums. Dailey and Vincent initially set out to create a project full of songs they had written independently, together and with close friends. While succeeding mightily in that regard, they also created a beautiful love letter to America and her people in a time when many need to be reminded, that while perhaps flawed, we are all still one. ...
CD review - Brothers of the Highway Some six years and counting after their spectacular debut on the bluegrass scene, with a couple of handfuls of IBMA awards garnered along the way, Jamie Dailey and Darrin Vincent continue to avoid the trap of sputtering out after using up their best material on the first couple of albums. The primary reason is, although they are adept at writing some of their own material (and two of the tracks on this new release, Steel Drivin' Man and Back To Jackson County are nice efforts by Dailey), ...
