When you hang out with a veteran of country music, there is never a lack of conversation. Darryl Worley is that person who no matter how many times we visit we gain insight into his music, his career, along with his proud love and respect for our Nations military. CMA Fest this year allowed us that time at his Fan Club party, which he sure knows how to throw.
Throughout his career he has mixed a blend of music that showcases two sides of his talent, the rich, tones and all-American, blue-collar themes in his #1 hits “I Miss My Friend,” “Awful, Beautiful Life” and “Have You Forgotten?” are reminders of the down-to-Earth, Haggard-like Darryl Worley you always knew. Then we come to the island vibes and blue-eyed soul in new songs “It’s Good To Be Me,” “Lay It On Me” and “Lonely Alone.”
Darryl continues to work on his current project, “Second Wind: Latest and Greatest,” that mixes the traditional-country history he established in Nashville with the ragged soul that’s deep in the bones of Muscle Shoals. He was hoping to have it out this year, but to get the perfection just right it takes time.
This is one guy we never tire of listening to, he always makes us feel welcomed, gives us some laughs and tells it like it is. To me that is a strong quality, one that I admire. So, sit back and catch up with the latest details on one of country music legends, Darryl Worley.
