Dailey & Vincent, the three-time International Bluegrass Music Association's (IBMA) Entertainers of the Year, will bring their blend of bluegrass, country and gospel to the Franklin County High School auditorium on Saturday, March 23.
The show, which begins at 7:30 p.m., is sponsored by the Rocky Mount Lions Club.
In addition to the Entertainer of the Year awards, Dailey & Vincent have also captured IBMA awards for vocal group of the year (2008, 2009 and 2010), album of the year in 2008, and male vocalist of the year (Jamie Dailey) in 2008.
