– Garth Fundis, who worked with Trisha Yearwood, will produce bluegrass duo Dailey & Vincent's next CD.
Dailey & Vincent, who recently claimed their third consecutive Entertainer of the Year title at the International Bluegrass Music Awards, will release their next album for Rounder Records in early 2011.
"We're incredibly excited to begin working with Garth on our new record," said Jamie Dailey. "He's produced some of the best music from artists we love and respect, like Don Williams, Trisha Yearwood and Keith Whitley."
Darrin Vincent said, "We're honored to welcome Garth to our team, and we can't wait to begin the song search and to work in the studio."
"I'm pleased and honored to have been invited aboard the Dailey & Vincent team for their next recording project," said Fundis. "I look forward to exploring the possibilities and building upon the substantial reputation they have quickly established. These are very talented people! Darrin, Jamie and I are putting our collective experiences into one great collaborative effort. Stay tuned."
"It's exciting for us to be working with Dailey & Vincent, who just keep coming up with new ideas for their next recording projects," said Rounder Founder Ken Irwin. "When they decided they wanted to work with a producer on their next album, Garth Fundis was the first name we all thought of. Garth has a well-deserved reputation for getting the best out of great singers and having a great ear for good songs, so working with him seemed like the logical next step forward for these guys."
The duo also received the Album of the Year award for their Cracker Barrel exclusive, "Dailey & Vincent Sing the Statler Brothers." They previously released three other CDs - "Dailey & Vincent," which was IBMA Album of the Year in 2008, "Brothers From Different Mothers" and "Singing From the Heart," an all a cappella collection benefiting the Tennessee Bible College.
