NASHVILLE, TENN. – Ten years ago, on December 29th, 2007, Jamie Dailey and Darrin Vincent had their first paid gig as a duo with a performance on the Grand Ole Opry. The duo became official Opry members last spring, capping a remarkable decade of building an award-winning career that now encompasses an eclectic mix of country, folk, gospel and bluegrass music along with television and comedy.
Jeff Roberts, President of JRA Fine Arts, announced today that JRA Fine Arts is rebranding and changing its name to Ovation Artist Group effective immediately. For the past five years, JRA Fine Arts has been a leader among booking agencies specializing in performing arts centers and symphonies. Under its new banner, Ovation Artist Group is expanding its roster to include some of the leading names in Jazz, Bluegrass, Americana, Pop, Magic and Theatre. The agency has recently added GRAMMY winner Kurt Elling, the legendary Ramsey Lewis and soul icon Sam Moore to its roster.
Multi-GRAMMY® nominees and three-time International Bluegrass Music Association Entertainers of the Year Dailey & Vincent were formally inducted into the Grand Ole Opry last Saturday night by Opry members Old Crow Medicine Show and Jeannie Seely.
