Jamie, Darin and Katy

And speaking of Dailey & Vincent

They will be featured Tuesday morning (12/14) on Katy Daley’s morning show on WAMU’s Bluegrass Country. The celebrated duo sat for an interview with Katy last week, which she dedicated primarily to the business plan they developed and all the hard work they put in before setting foot on stage together for the first time.

This lengthy interview will air starting at 8:00 a.m. (EST) and running through to 9:30. Katy told us that she wanted people to know how seriously Jamie and Darin took this venture to go out on their own, from the relative comfort of positions with Doyle Lawson and Ricky Skaggs.

“Everyone knows what a great show they put on, but not so much about the 4 years of planning and saving money before they got started. Bands at any level should take note of what these two serious business pros have to say about their work.

Overall it’s a serious interview – but you’ll still get to hear Darin’s trademark laugh!”

Katy also mentioned how embarrassed she was when the guys first arrived at the studio..

“They showed up early one morning, in their nice suits and pressed shirts – and were starving to death. I didn’t think to have them something for lunch, and all I had was two cans of soup!”

Catch the interview on the Bluegrass Country bluegrass audio stream 24/7 at www.bluegrasscountry.org. After airing on Tuesday at 8:00, it will run again on Sunday January 2 and 9 from 3:00-4:30 p.m. (EST), and in an edited version during the Editor’s Picks slot from December 18-31.

  • While waiting around at home this morning for the HVAC guy to come and service our furnace I was able to hear a good portion of this interview on the radio. My first thought is humorous: these guys are having way too much fun to call it work. My second thought is that these guys have put their families and their relationship to God first in their lives in what they do and it shows. I applaud their stand for what, or more accurately, who they believe in, their behavior of not hiding it, and their music.
    Katie did a great interview and she appeared to be having a genuinely good time doing what she calls work. Good job Dailey & Vincent. Good job Katie. Good job WAMU.
