Why do we still root for Superman? He is stronger than any of us. He didn’t earn his powers. He always wins and is a more than a little sanctimonious. In his new book Our Hero: Superman on Earth Professor Tom DeHaven argues Superman continues to win our devotion because he exemplifies the classic American immigrant success story. Then, Jamie Dailey and Darrin Vincent had already gained acclaim in the bluegrass world long before teaming up to record their first album as a duo. In 2008 they released their debut album, Dailey & Vincent, which was named album of the year, one of seven awards the group took home in an unprecedented feat at the International Bluegrass Music Awards Show. Now the duo has just released their new CD titled Dailey & Vincent Sing The Statler Brothers.
