Gainesboro’s own Grand Ole Opry star Jamie Dailey has a new “Tennessee Music Pathways” marker in his home town.
Dailey, Tennessee Department of Tourist Development Commissioner Mark Ezell, and local leaders unveiled the marker Saturday, Oct. 5 on Gainesboro’s downtown square during a community celebration.
Dailey & Vincent performed two intimate and exclusive sold-out concerts at The Bull & Thistle Pub. More than $9,500 raised from the concerts will benefit the Dailey & Vincent Helping Hands Fund, which provides financial assistance to meet nutritional, educational and medical needs to disadvantaged children of Jackson and DeKalb counties.
Dailey is working with community leaders to help revitalize Gainesboro. The Tennessee Music Pathways, launched by Tennessee Department of Tourist Development in September 2018, is an interactive guide that connects visitors to the state’s rich musical heritage. From the largest cities to the smallest communities, this statewide program features hundreds of landmarks and attractions from the seven genres of music that call Tennessee home: blues, bluegrass, country, gospel, soul, rockabilly, and rock n roll.
