About the Band

Jeff Parker

Jeff is a proud Kentucky native who learned to play guitar from his father, Vester, when he was just 6 years old. After tackling the guitar, he moved on to other instruments, until at age 12 he was inspired by Harold Russell of the Russell Brothers to play mandolin. Soon after, Jeff joined his dad and other family members, playing at area churches and radio stations, and they became known as the Sounds of Gospel.

When he was 19, Jeff left the Sounds of Gospel and joined Train 45, The Bluegrass Drifters, and other acts. He then became a member of Renfro Valley Entertainment Center, where he played mandolin, guitar, banjo and fiddle and sang harmony vocals in the staff band from 1986 to 1994.  He also performed with The Parker Brothers, a featured bluegrass act at Renfro Valley.  They were named Best Bluegrass Band at Renfro in 1992.  In 1994 Jeff was awarded Best Harmony Singer, and in 1991 he was named Best Instrumentalist.  After leaving Renfro Valley, Jeff spent five years in the group Wilderness Trail, which he formed with his brother Mike.

In October 2001 Jeff joined The Lonesome River Band as mandolin player and tenor singer.  He spent the next five years with LRB and recorded three albums with them.

Jeff has recorded two solo albums. The latest, Go Parker! released in 2012 and Two Roads to Travel, both on Lonesome Day Records.  Jeff has performed or recorded with other acts including Dale Ann Bradley, Steve Gulley, Rick Bartley, Aaron McDaris, Wildfire, David Marshall, Jason Davis, Linda Lay, Larry Sparks, Tony Rice and the late Larry Rice.  He joined Dailey & Vincent in January 2007. 

Christian Davis

Christian began to sing at age three, and throughout his childhood he learned to play various instruments.  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, Texas in 2006. Christian and his wife, Sophia, are the proud parents of Shelby, Richard and Anneliese.

B.J. Cherryholmes

B.J. Cherryholmes began playing with his family at age 11. Due to a family tragedy in 1999, B.J., his brother, two sisters, and mom and dad started a family jam as a way to get closer as a family. Little did they know that this would spark and eventually skyrocket to a highly successful 12 year musical career as the internationally touring band " Cherryholmes ". B.J. would play an intricate part in the band's five Grammy nominations, composing both "Sumatra" and "Tattoo of A Smudge" that were nominees for Country Instrumental Performance of The Year. He also contributed to the winning of one and the nomination of two IBMA Entertainers of the Year awards, and several other nominations for organizations like Dove, SPBGMA, and GMA.

Being with one of Bluegrass' and acoustic music's more successful bands in recent years, B.J. has become a proficient multi-instrumentalist and musical visionary. Having been an important part of not only the tracking, but also the producing of Cherryholmes' last two Skaggs Family Records releases, he has continued to grow in both musical and technical understanding of the music industry.

In July of 2011, B.J. joined the Bluegrass super duo of Dailey and Vincent, where his debut was at the Ryman Auditorium for Bluegrass Nights At The Ryman. Since then, he has been a full-time member of the group, touring actively across the U.S., as well as around the world, including appearances with the group on the Grand Old Opry and other high profile venues and tv shows. Performing with this group has contributed to his overall musical growth, and continues to present him with more opportunities to sharpen and display his skills.
