Country music stalwart Marty Stuart surprised bluegrass duo Dailey & Vincent with an esteemed honor during an appearance at the Ryman Auditorium on Dec. 30, when Stuart invited the duo to become the newest members of the Grand Ole Opry. Dailey & Vincent will be formally inducted on Saturday, March 11.

Jamie Dailey and Darrin Vincent were there to celebrate their 10th year as a duo, which began on the Opry at the Ryman stage in 2007. The evening also marked the duo’s 100th appearance on the Grand Ole Opry.

“Country music needs you. Country music loves you. And the Grand Ole Opry welcomes you,” Stuart said while extending the invitation.

“This is one of the most special things that has ever happened to us,” Dailey said. “We’re so thankful.”

Vincent added, “I have no words. I’m so honored. The Lord is so faithful to us.”

“Dailey & Vincent have thoroughly entertained thousands of fans on the Opry stage over the past decade,” said Opry Vice President and General Manager Pete Fisher. “Jamie Dailey and Darrin Vincent embody so much about what fans love about the Opry. They have a tremendous respect for tradition, and they’re also innovators committed to the future of the music they love. We’re excited to welcome them as official members of the family in March.”
