Worley shoots video with a little help
Friday, April 3, 2009
– Darryl Worley shot the music video for his single Sounds Like Life To Me
this week. Tennessee Titans quarterback Kerry Collins and Jamey Johnson lent their acting skills as bartender and a bar patron at Miss Fran's in Columbia, Tenn., where part of the clip was filmed.
"To look behind the bar, and see this amazing athlete I watch on TV every week cleaning glasses and serving up beers was so cool," said Worley of Collins' appearance. "And to have my buddy Jamey take a day out of his exploding career meant the world to me...though he did get some free beer out of the deal."
Worley co-wrote the song with Wynn Varble and Phil O'Donnell. The video was directed by Birmingham-based duo The Erwin Brothers for Revolution Pictures, and it should be hitting the airwaves within three weeks.
Worley's new album, "Sounds Like Life," is due June 9 as the first release of Stroudavarious Records.

"I Just Came Back from a War" is written from the perspective of an Iraqi war veteran returning home and how he deals with everyone around him saying he's a changed person. It's a powerful message, and it's pro-war sentiment is much more ...
Darryl Worley gets dark on his fourth and deepest album. The dozen songs often focus on the hardscrabble small town Southern life, murder, facing death and difficult relationships. This is not easy subject matter to digest even when Worley applies a lighter side musically (the well done "I Love Her, She Hates Me").
"If Something Should Happen" is sung in the voice of a cancer victim who may not survive. Not exactly the typical major label country fare these days. "Facing Death" describes the ...
