Bluegrass duo Dailey & Vincent recently made their Grand Ole Opry debut. Both Jamie Dailey and Darrin Vincent have played the Opry before as sidemen, but this was their first appearance while fronting their own band.
The duo performed three songs on the Opry December 29, 2007, By the Mark, Poor Boy Workin’ Blues and Don’t You Call My Name. All three songs can be heard on their self-titled CD due out January 29, 2008. In addition to their own material, the band performed the song Senses by special request of Opry legend Jeannie Seely.
I spoke briefly with Jamie Dailey yesterday about their appearance on the Opry. When I asked him what it was like to play the Opry as a front man instead of a sideman, he responded with this comment.
It was very humbling and exciting. We both were so thankful for that great opportunity.
The band’s publicist, Karen Byrd, passed along the two photos of the pair backstage that night. Thanks Karen!
