The Gospel Side of Dailey & Vincent

Available at Cracker Barrel.

The all-gospel country album—once an old standby—is far less common in the mainstream today, though inspirational music remains a logical move within the smaller sphere of traditional acoustic country, which has deep roots in the rural and the reverent.

For bluegrass duo Dailey & Vincent, whose weekday work regularly bears a strong Christian influence, an all-gospel album is a natural. This, the duo’s second consecutive set for Cracker Barrel, nods slightly to its predecessor, a Statler Brothers tribute, in terms of its healthy serving of bass-fortified quartet-style fare. But this one’s a Spirit-filled tour de force of hair-raising vocal harmony that crosses Bill Monroe with Bill Gaither and counts off various stripes of country-gospel like so many flowers on the wall, with Southern gospel, old-timey spirituals and mountain-music styles sharing a pew with tunes from Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton and Buck Owens.

If anyone at your church sounds like this, you truly are blessed; the rest of you will need to cross over to The Gospel Side of Dailey & Vincent.
