Dailey & Vincent will release their first-ever Christmas record, Dailey & Vincent: The Sounds of Christmas, on Oct. 12 with BMG. Additionally, the duo plans to release a nationally broadcast television Christmas concert special, four all-new Christmas episodes of The Dailey & Vincent Show on RFD-TV and a 15-city Christmas tour, which launches Nov. 24.
Dailey & Vincent: The Sounds of Christmas features Christmas classics like “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree,” “Carol of the Bells” and “Go Tell It On The Mountain” as well as never-before-heard holiday tunes such as “Road To Bethlehem” featuring Dolly Parton, written by Country Music Hall of Fame and Gospel Music Hall of Fame member Jimmy Fortune and Jeff Bates. Ricky Skaggs also joins Dailey & Vincent on a cut of Alabama’s “Tonight It’s Christmas,” which is one of two bonus tracks available exclusively when fans purchase the Christmas record at Cracker Barrel Old Country Store locations.
“I’ve wanted to record a Christmas record my whole life, so to say I’m unhinged with excitement over the release of The Sounds of Christmas is an understatement!” expressed Jamie Dailey.
“It’s been a dream of ours the past 10 years. Timing is everything, and we’re very happy we waited. The song selection on this album takes you through a journey from childhood to adulthood, laughs, memories and the true meaning of Christmas,” added Darrin Vincent.
To coincide with the record’s release, the Grand Ole Opry stars recently taped The Sounds of Christmas, a broadcast television concert special, at The Franklin Theatre. During the sold-out special, which was produced by BMG Filmed Entertainment and directed by BMG’s Joe Thomas, Dailey & Vincent were joined by fellow entertainers, including CeCe Winans and Béla Fleck.
