Dailey & Vincent raise $32K to help children

Tuesday, October 12, 2010 – Dailey & Vincent's first Homecoming Concert, held in Gainesboro, Tenn. on Oct. 2, raised almost $32,000 for the Dailey & Vincent Helping Hands Fund.

The Dailey & Vincent Helping Hands Fund, administered through the Cookeville Regional Medical Center Foundation, provides financial help to disadvantaged children of Tennessee's Jackson and DeKalb Counties to meet immediate medical, nutritional and educational needs not covered by insurance or other means. Funds raised at the concert, attended by more than 2,000 people, will be divided evenly for use in Jackson and DeKalb Counties.

The Quebe Sisters Band opened the show, which was emceed by WSM air personality and Opry announcer Eddie Stubbs.

"We want to thank everyone who supported the concert by buying a ticket or making a donation," said Jamie Dailey.

"Because of their generosity, 100 percent of the ticket sales and other donations went directly into the fund," said Darrin Vincent. "And we couldn't have staged an event like this without the help of a dedicated team of volunteers, so we want to thank them, as well."

Prior to the concert, Jackson County Mayor John Cason and Gainesboro Mayor John Fox read a proclamation declaring Oct. 2 as Dailey & Vincent Day in Jackson County and the town of Gainesboro.

CD review - Patriots & Poets From time to time an album comes along with exactly the right message and meaning at exactly the right time - "Patriots & Poets" is one of those albums. Dailey and Vincent initially set out to create a project full of songs they had written independently, together and with close friends. While succeeding mightily in that regard, they also created a beautiful love letter to America and her people in a time when many need to be reminded, that while perhaps flawed, we are all still one. ...
CD review - Brothers of the Highway Some six years and counting after their spectacular debut on the bluegrass scene, with a couple of handfuls of IBMA awards garnered along the way, Jamie Dailey and Darrin Vincent continue to avoid the trap of sputtering out after using up their best material on the first couple of albums. The primary reason is, although they are adept at writing some of their own material (and two of the tracks on this new release, Steel Drivin' Man and Back To Jackson County are nice efforts by Dailey), ...
