About Darryl Worley
In his 15-year career in country music, Darryl Worley has seen nearly 20 hit singles and three chart-topping hits, including "Awful, Beautiful Life" and "I Miss My Friend." Following the tragic events of 9/11, Worley penned "Have You Forgotten," which became the biggest hit of his career after spending seven weeks at No. 1. Worley has also spent much of his career supporting the U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan and has made a tradition of visiting them each year. Outside of music, Worley gives back every opportunity he can. In 2002, Worley founded the Darryl Worley Foundation, to help serve the needs of the people of Hardin and McNairy counties in West Tennessee and the surrounding areas.
