Jamie Dailey and Darrin Vincent, the duo of Dailey & Vincent, are the reigning 3-time International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) Entertainers of the Year and Vocal Group of the Year. They were also the first act in the history of the IBMA Awards to win both Entertainer of the Year and Emerging Artist of the Year in the same year (2008). The feat was all the more impressive because they had released their debut album just a few months earlier.
Their version of "Elizabeth" from Dailey & Vincent Sing the Statler Brothers garnered their first GRAMMY nomination, for Best Country Performance By a Duo or Group With Vocals. Dailey & Vincent Sing the Statler Brothers was also named Album of the Year at the 2010 IBMA Awards and the 2011 SPBGMA Bluegrass Awards.
The New York Times has called them “the most celebrated new bluegrass act of the last few years.” The Wall Street Journal began a recent feature on Dailey & Vincent (“A Bluegrass Duo Reigns Again”) with, “A new dynasty may be taking shape in bluegrass music.”
