LEBANON, TENN – When Dailey and Vincent were named “Entertainer of the Year” at this year’s International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) awards ceremony, the celebrated bluegrass duo also received the appreciation and thanks of a whole lot of Cracker Barrel Old Country Store employees. The CD that Jamie and Darrin released exclusively through Cracker Barrel earlier this year, Dailey & Vincent Sing The Statler Brothers, was named “Album of the Year,” and the CD also won for “Best Graphic Design for a Recorded Project.”

“Recognition like this says so much about the quality and authenticity we strive to offer through Cracker Barrel’s exclusive music program,” said Marketing Vice President Peter Keiser. “We have greatly enjoyed working with Jamie and Darrin and visiting with them at our Home Office as well as in all the Cracker Barrel locations they have been to while on tour.” Keiser added, “It was thrilling when they were named ‘Entertainer of the Year’ – their third time for this! It’s wonderful for them to receive this recognition from their peers in the world of professional bluegrass music, and Cracker Barrel is humbled and honored to be part of this success.”

Jamie said, “We were delighted to work with Cracker Barrel on this project because we pull our bus into a Cracker Barrel every weekend; that’s where we have breakfast and lunch.” And Darrin added, “Bluegrass music is the roots of America, and we think Cracker Barrel is the roots of America, and combining the two is just a perfect match.” And Jamie added, “From the very first time we started including some Statler Brothers songs in our shows, the audience response was overwhelming. All it took was the first few bars of ‘Elizabeth’ or ‘Do You Know You Are My Sunshine?’ and the crowd was out of their seats and singing along. That’s a testament to the timeless quality of the Statlers’ songs, which is why we were so glad for the opportunity to work with Cracker Barrel to release this album.”
