Darryl Worley puts the "traditional" back in new traditional country music. A nontraditional country singer himself, Worley honed his singer-songwriter skills while earning a biology degree with a minor in organic chemistry. All the while he was allegedly running a moonshine racket and playing at various honky-tonks. Rumor has it that Worley even broke off his wedding engagement to become a full-time country crooner. His songs are marinated in the warm old tones that birthed country music -- the same tones most folks on the top of the country charts don't seem to embrace any more. His voice is strong in soul, and his love songs showcase heartfelt inflections that really let you in and realize the amazing amount of control this man has over his voice.
