Bluegrass Duo Dailey & Vincent Inducted Into the Grand Ole Opry

On Jan. 30, bluegrass duo Dailey & Vincent got an unexpected surprise during their 100th appearance on the Grand Ole Opry when Marty Stuart invited them to officially join the Opry.

Last night (March 11), the celebration continued as the duo was formally inducted into the Opry by members Jeannie Seely and Old Crow Medicine Show.

Comprised of Jamie Dailey (guitar, bass, vocals) and Darrin Vincent (mandolin, guitar, bass, vocals), the duo formed in 2007 and has earned a number of honors over their decade-long career, including multiple International Bluegrass Music Association awards and three Grammy nominations.

“I had the honor of introducing Dailey & Vincent for their first Opry appearance,” said Jeannie Seely. “I thought to myself that night, ‘I hope one day I get to see them become members of the Opry . . . because they epitomize everything the Opry is onstage and off.’”

“They honor the traditions and respect their elders, but most of all they entertain,” said Old Crow Medicine Show frontman Ketch Secor. “Tonight they join the ranks of country music’s greatest entertainers . . . Welcome Dailey & Vincent to the first family of country music.”

“We love the Grand Ole Opry. It’s in our DNA,” Dailey said as he and Vincent recognized family, friends and their band before closing the celebration with “I’ll Go to My Grave Loving You,” a hit by one of their musical heroes, The Statler Brothers.

Brian Kelley Finds A Solo Home

Earlier this year Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard announced that while Florida Georgia Line would continue, both guys would also be venturing out to do their own musical projects. As their FGL song “Long Live” is knocking on the door to number-1, Tyler is also climbing the chart with Tim McGraw and their duet “Undivided.”

Now, Brian is giving fans a taste of what’s to come with his solo project – he shared, “There’s a new kind of cowboy in town…who’s ready to ride this wave? Can’t wait for y’all to hear this new music.”

Brian also made some news in announcing that he’s partnering with Warner Music Nashville when it comes to any future solo projects he has, “I couldn’t be more grateful for everyone who has helped me on my journey to get here. I’m humbled to team up with Warner Music Nashville to take the music I’ve been dreamin’ and schemin’ up to the next level. This is just the beginning of a whole new adventure. My vision for what’s next is a vibe and state of mind – get ready to ride the wave with ya Beach Cowboy, y’all!”
