Dailey & Vincent‘s rendition of the Karen Staley song “I’ll Leave My Heart in Tennessee” has been signed in as an official state song by Tennessee Governor Bill Lee.
The honor came just a few days ahead of the Grammy-nominated duo’s fifth anniversary as members of the Grand Ole Opry.
“We’ve played ‘I’ll Leave My Heart in Tennessee’ on the road for quite some time, and every time it’s gotten an overwhelming reaction,” shares Darrin Vincent. “We recently recorded it, and we’re honored the recording has made history and become an official state song.”
“We’d especially like to thank Senator Paul Bailey and Brandy Foust, Representative John Mark Windle, Representative Terry Lynn Weaver, and the entire House and Senate for their interest in and support of this song,” adds Jamie Dailey.
The busy duo recently announced the expansion and rebrand of their festival, The American Made Music Festival. The festival series will include five dates and four locations in 2022, kicking off in June with a two-day festival at The Sand Mountain Amphitheater in Albertville, Alabama on June 10-11.
