August has been a good month for Jamie Dailey and Darrin Vincent. They heard their names called several times when this year’s IBMA Award nominations were announced (Entertainer of the Year, Vocal Group of the Year and Male Vocalist of the Year), and they were invited to take part in the filming of a PBS special honoring Johnny Cash.
The show was shot in Jonesboro, AR where they guys shared the stage with George Jones, Kris Kristofferson, Gary Morris, Rosanne Cash, John Carter Cash and Laura Cash before a sold out house of 7,000 country music fans. A total of $310,000 was raised at the event which will go towards a complete restoration of Cash’s boyhood home in nearby Dyess.
Jamie and Darrin put together a little video from their visit to the land of Cash, designed to help spread the word about the special, for which no broadcast date has yet been established.
More details as they are announced.
