When Bluegrass takes a walk on the Gospel side . . .
The Gospel Side of Dailey & Vincent
Nominated for Best Bluegrass Album
at the 55th GRAMMY® Awards
“The duo of Jamie Dailey and Darrin Vincent has cracked open the formalism of religious string-band music by reaching out to mainstream country and even some humor to create an irresistible album. Of course, it helps that their duet singing is prettier than just about anyone’s.”
-The Washington Post
“ . . . a Spirit-filled tour de force of hair-raising vocal harmony that crosses Bill Monroe with Bill Gaither and counts off various stripes of country-gospel like so many flowers on the wall, with Southern gospel, old-timey spirituals and mountain-music styles sharing a pew with tunes from Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton and Buck Owens.”
“ . . . built around the exquisite harmonies that Jamie and Darrin seem to bring to everything they sing.”
“ . . . the music lacks nothing in the way of excellent performance and good spirit.”
“ . . . their strength is the kind of close harmony that made the Louvins and McReynolds household names in country music . . .”
