The multi-talented and award winning bluegrass duo.
The chance to perform live is always thrilling for Dailey & Vincent. Amp up the experience by adding a 50-piece orchestra and a choral group 100 strong - as they did for the towering centerpiece of their new Cracker Barrel Old Country Store exclusive CD Dailey & Vincent - ALIVE! In Concert. Even critically acclaimed veterans like Jamie Dailey and Darrin Vincent can be overcome by the moment. “That’s what I enjoyed more than anything – the big production of it,” Dailey said.
“When you’ve got that many great singers and players around you, it’s like there’s really no way you can mess up because they carry you so easily and they make your job so much easier to showcase your entertainer abilities, your vocal abilities, your instrumental abilities. Just having those guys around you kind of gives it an old feel. I almost felt like Frank Sinatra sometimes having those orchestras around us and those choral groups around us. It was one of the most wonderful feelings on earth. I hope that makes its way over to the people who buy it and watch it. I hope they feel the same way.”
The album’s meant to capture the songs fans request most often, but also to share a connection over themes that are universal for the band and its fans.
“I would like for the listener to listen with open mind and open ears and live inside these songs,” Dailey said. “Let their minds live these songs like I’ll Leave My Heart in Tennessee and American Pride when they hear them, let the songs carry them on a trip with beautiful lyrics that tell a story. To me that’s what music should do. To me as a singer, writer and producer, that’s what it should be all about.”
