NASHVILLE, TENN. (February 2, 2016) – Music superstars Dailey & Vincent are excited to announce the release of their upcoming eighth album, Patriots & Poets on March 31. The star-studded project features collaborations with bluegrass music’s top musicians including Steve Martin, Doyle Lawson, Bela Fleck, and David Rawlings. The soon-to-be inducted Grand Ole Opry members will release the collection via Dreamlined Entertainment Group and BFD (distributed via RED).
The project features 16 all-new tracks that were all written or co-written by Jamie Dailey and Darrin Vincent, with a collection of energizing upbeat songs, along with slow sing-along anthems. Standout tracks on the project include the feel-good track “California” which features a very special verse by comedic and bluegrass enthusiast Steve Martin. Other highlights on the project include thought-provoking songs like, “Beautiful Scars” and “American We Love You,” all highlighting harmonies by 6-time “Male Vocalist of the Year” winner Jamie Dailey and 5-time Grammy® winner Darrin Vincent. Another feel-good moment on Patriots & Poets includes the track “Bill and Ole Elijah.”
Patriots & Poets will serve as the follow-up to the duo’s previous release, ALIVE!, which spent 15 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Bluegrass Albums chart. The DVD also debuted at No. 2 across all genres. Also, the hit RFD-TV program, “The Dailey & Vincent Show” is back with season one and season two of the popular variety series, now airing on Friday nights at 7:30pm ET, throughout all of 2017.

So far, 2017 has proven to be a career-defining year for the award-winning duo, who will be formally inducted into the Grand Ole Opry in March, becoming the newest members of the prestigious show that made country music famous. The IBMA award-winners were recently honored by the International Bluegrass Hall of Fame and Museum with the brand new exhibit, “A Decade of Dailey & Vincent: An American Music Journey,” which features artifacts and memorabilia from their decorated career as a duo and beyond. Dailey & Vincent will take the stage on February 13 in Nashville, Tennessee for a special free show at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum for museum members at The CMA Theater.
