Worley runs the Tennessee River again

Tuesday, July 27, 2010 – Darryl Worley's 9th Annual Tennessee River Run will be held Sept. 16-18 near his hometown of Savannah, Tenn. The festival will feature three days of activities, including a concert with Danny Gokey and a golf tournament. All proceeds from the festival will benefit the Darryl Worley Foundation.

Highlights of the TRR include a memorable Evening With Darryl & Friends (Sept.16), golf (Sept. 17), a 5K run/walk (Sept. 18), a Motorcycle Poker Run (Sept. 18), a rock Concert with headliner Marshall Tucker Band (Sept. 17) and a country show with Worley and former American Idol contestant Gokey (Sept.18). All events will take place at various locations in West Tennessee including Pickwick, Adamsville, and Savannah.

Worley initially organized the TRR in 2001 to raise money for people of need in his community. Since its inception, TRR has raised more than a million dollars for foundation, which has honored grants to various charities throughout West Tennessee. Some of the beneficiaries include the American Red Cross, Boys and Girls Club of Iuka, MS, Hardin County Education Foundation, Le Bonheur Children's Medical Center, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, victims of Hurricane Katrina, and the newly created Darryl Worley Cancer Treatment Center scheduled to open early 2011.

Tickets to all events range in price from $10 to $35 and go on sale Monday, Aug. 2.

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").
