Burlington, MA – Rounder Records duo Dailey & Vincent has planned a heavy schedule of tour dates and promotional appearances in support of Brothers From Different Mothers, their sophomore release, on March 31. Dailey & Vincent sold out two shows in Cookeville, Tennessee, on January 30 and 31, as well as the Shepherdsville Music Palace in Shepherdsville, Kentucky, on January 23. During that show, Jamie Dailey, Darrin Vincent and their band members were commissioned as Kentucky Colonels and presented with an official certificate. Only the Governor of the Commonwealth has the authority to appoint a Kentucky Colonel, and the actual certificate, by law, is issued by the Kentucky Secretary of State after a formal nomination process. Dailey & Vincent are humbled and honored to join the ranks of other Kentucky Colonels, including Elvis Presley, Bob Hope, Omar Bradley, Winston Churchill, Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton, Bill Crosby, Dwight Yoakam, Muhammad Ali and Tiger Woods. Dailey & Vincent have received nine SPBGMA Bluegrass Music Awards nominations for the awards show to be held on February 15 at the Music City Sheraton in Nashville: Bluegrass Album of the Year (Dailey & Vincent), Bass Fiddle Performer of the Year (Darrin Vincent), Male Vocalist of the Year/Contemporary (Jamie Dailey), Gospel Group of the Year/Contemporary, Vocal Group of the Year, Bluegrass Band of the Year Overall, Song of the Year (“By the Mark”), Entertaining Group of the Year and Entertainer of the Year (Jamie Dailey). Brothers From Different Mothers is a 12-song set produced by the duo featuring various approaches to harmony singing, incorporating solos by both partners, duets, trios, and a quartet. There is music on the album that will be familiar and attractive to southern gospel, country music, or folk-oriented listeners, as well as traditional bluegrass fans.
Classic southern gospel is represented with “Oh, Ye Must Be Born Again” and “When I’ve Traveled My Last Mile.” Country fans may recognize Roger Miller’s “You Oughta Be Here With Me,” as well as “Years Ago” and “There Is You,” recorded by the Statler Brothers. Singers/songwriters Gillian Welch and David Rawlings, who wrote “By the Mark,” authored “Winter’s Come and Gone.” New compositions include Robert Gateley’s “Head Hung Down” (featuring a guest appearance by Statler Brother Harold Reid in his comedy alter ego of Lester “Roadhog” Moran), Ron Spears’ “Please Don’t Let Our Sweet Love Die,” and the powerful “On the Other Side,” written by Jimmy Fortune, Kevin Denney and Tom Botkin. Jamie Dailey penned “Girl in the Valley” and “When I Reach That Home Up There.” “Love is Like a Flower,” by Michael Hazelwood, hasn’t been heard on a bluegrass recording since 1991. Jamie Dailey says, “By adding styles that are a little different from our first record, we hope to please the fans we have, while reaching out to those people who don’t know yet that they’re bluegrass fans.”
