Nashville, Tenn. — Rounder Records duo Dailey & Vincent won six awards at the 35th Annual SPBGMA Bluegrass Music Awards, held Sunday, February 15, 2009 at the Sheraton Music City Hotel.
Together they were honored for Bluegrass Band of the Year (Overall), Vocal Group of the Year, Gospel Group of the Year (Contemporary) and Song of the Year ("By the Mark"), while Jamie Dailey was named Male Vocalist of the Year (Contemporary) and Darrin Vincent was named Bass Fiddle Performer of the Year.
Dailey & Vincent were not present for the awards show due to a prior commitment to perform at the Joe Val Bluegrass Festival in Framingham, Massachusetts, on the same day. When they learned about the awards they received, Vincent said, "We continue to be overwhelmed and humbled by how much we've been blessed. Thank you to everyone who voted. This means the world to us!"
Dailey & Vincent will perform at Joe's Pub in Manhattan on February 17, celebrating the forthcoming release of their second album for Rounder, Brothers From Different Mothers (in stores March 31).
On Monday, February 23, they will be in Lexington, Kentucky, to tape Michael Johnathon's WoodSongs Old-Time Radio Hour.
