Dailey & VIncent's Statlers tribute reaches number one

Wednesday, February 10, 2010 – "Dailey & Vincent Sing the Statler Brothers" will be number one on the Billboard Top Bluegrass Albums chart when it is released this week. The album also entered the Billboard Top Country Albums chart at 19, earning the Hot Shot Debut and marking the duo's first top-20 debut on that chart. The album has landed the number 1 spot on the Heatseekers Albums chart, for artists who have never appeared in the top 100 of the Billboard 200, or the top 10 of R&B/HipHop, Country, Latin, Christian or Gospel Albums charts. It is also at 120 on the overall Billboard 200.

The 12-song CD, now available exclusively at Cracker Barrel Old Country Store and online at www.crackerbarrel.com, features Dailey & Vincent's new bluegrass interpretations of classic Statler Brothers songs.

"We are thrilled beyond belief about the response to this album," said Jamie Dailey. "It's further evidence of the timelessness of these great songs."

"We are so thankful to our fans who went out and purchased the CD," Darrin Vincent continued, "and to Statler Brothers fans who love the music like we do and took a chance on us."

The duo celebrated the album's release with a party at the Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum on Feb. 3. The Statler Brothers themselves, along with other top names including Ricky Skaggs, Bill Gaither, Ralph Emery, Duane Allen, Joe Bonsall, Ronnie and Rob McCoury, Steve Wariner, Rounder Records co-founder Ken Irwin and Ronnie Bowman, were on hand to congratulate Dailey & Vincent.

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), ...
