Dailey & Vincent Add Two New Band Members

Coinciding with the release of their Statler Brothers tribute album (see review elsewhere in this issue), Dailey & Vincent announced two new additions to their band in Christian Davis on bass vocals and guitar and Jesse Stockman on fiddle. 

Born June 17, 1977, in Deming, NM, Stockman started playing fiddle at age eight and went on to become New Mexico State Fiddle Champion four years in a row.  After marrying, Jesse moved to Arizona to play with a local band, Patti Bell and the Arizona Jamboree.  He entered and won the Arizona State Fiddle Championship, Four Corners Mandolin Championship, and Four Corners Regional Flat Pick Guitar Championship. While in Arizona he and his good friend, Jess Barry, formed a bluegrass band called Crucial County. It was while performing with Crucial County in Arizona that Jesse was approached by Doyle Lawson and offered a fiddle job with Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver.  Jesse moved to Tennessee in March 2002 and stayed with Lawson for the next three-and-a-half years. In August 2005, he began playing fiddle with The Isaacs. While with The Isaacs, Stockman performed on many Gaither videos, traveled to Africa, Germany, Norway, the Netherlands, Ireland, and performed on several cruises. He also accompanied Vince Gill, George Jones, Josh Turner and a host of other top-level country artist. He and his wife Amanda have three children—Hannah, 10; James, six; and Oliver, who just turned one year old.

Christian Davis was singing at age three, and learning to play multiple instruments throughout his childhood. He began singing professionally in 1998 while attending Liberty University, as bass vocalist with The Sounds of Liberty, traveling to many churches and venues around the country. Later that year Dr. Jerry Falwell, with Christian's persuasion, formed the Old Time Gospel Hour Quartet, which Christian began as the original bass singer. He has since sung with other quartets such as the Old Friends Quartet (while George Younce was ill), Christian Brothers Quartet and Mercy's Mark. In addition to his music career, Christian served as the Assistant Director of Recruiting for Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, TX, in 2006. Christian and his wife, Sophia, have three children, Shelby, Richard and Anneliese.

Jeff Parker on mandolin and vocals; and Joe Dean, Jr. on banjo, guitar and vocals remain with Dailey & Vincent’s band. For more information visit
