Darryl Worley to Perform Seven Free Concerts on Army Posts
While many country singers show their support for U.S. troops at home and abroad, Darryl Worley is taking the extra step to honor not only those who serve, but the families who stay behind. He'll embark on the seven-city '2010 God & Country Tour' October 15, performing free concerts on Army posts for military families.
Darryl will precede every performance with an appearance at each post's Exchange to sign autographs and visit with servicemen and women and their families. In addition, a free download of Darryl's song 'Unsung Heroes' will be available to members of the Armed Forces here. 'Unsung Heroes' and Darryl's 2002 No.1 'Have You Forgotten' will also be featured on the seven-song 'God & Country' EP, which will be sold at each stop.
"I have never had anything affect my life in such a huge way as I have performing for troops both here and overseas," Darryl says. "It's affected me physically, spiritually and emotionally. At times it's been overwhelming, but it's also one of the most rewarding things I've ever done."
Darryl most recently visited Iraq in April on his 'Stars For Stripes' tour, playing acoustic shows at several Forward Operating Bases. He's also received the VFW's Americanism Award, the USO Merit Award and the U.S. Army Appreciation Award for his work and dedication to our Armed Forces.
"This may have been the best year we've ever had," Darryl says. "I thank God for this awesome opportunity to help people who have nowhere else to turn, and I'm truly honored and humbled by these responsibilities."
The Foundation supports funding for the Darryl Worley Cancer Treatment Center, which is currently being built at Hardin Medical Center in Darryl's hometown of Savannah, Tenn. While it was previously scheduled to open in 2011, the facility is ahead of schedule and will now open later this year.
The 10th annual 'Tennessee River Run' will be held September 15-17, 2011.
