Darryl Wade Worley (born October 31, 1964) is an American country music singer
In 2005, Worley signed with country singer
Neal McCoy's vanity
label 903 Music. His first release for 903 was the single, "Nothin' but a Love
Thang", which peaked at No. 35. This was the first of three singles from Here
and Now, his fourth studio album.
His interest in songwriting blossomed during his student years at Martin Methodist College and the University Of North Alabama. Darryl Worley funded his education by working at the local paper mill, in construction and as a commercial fisherman on the Tennessee River. He also formed his own country band and landed a regular job singing the songs of
Willie Nelson and
Dwight Yoakam at the Back Porch Restaurant in Shiloh, Tennessee.

"I 'graduated' from that to the Moose Lodge and the local American Legion Hall," Worley quips. "You name it, I played 'em all down there. I could make a list of beer joints as long as my arm. As soon as I graduated from college, I really started hammering away on songwriting."
With degree in hand, he went to work as a research biologist in Tuscumbia, Alabama, later returning to his home county to teach school and, briefly, sell cars. He next worked in chemical sales for a company in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Then he formed a partnership with some friends and launched his own chemical supply business. But all this time, music was tugging at his sleeve.

His song tapes led to a contract with FAME publishing in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, which found Darryl Worley chucking the life of a prospering businessman to roll the dice as a $150-a-week songwriter. At that point, his singing became a matter of survival. Fortunately, acts like Archer Park, The Hutchins and even
George Jones recorded his early tunes. And in 1994, on the strength of "A Good Day To Run," among other songs, Darryl Worley 'graduated' again, this time to EMI Publishing in Nashville.
The company's executives introduced him to producer Frank Rogers, who was then working on
Brad Paisley's debut disc. Worley and Rogers hit it off instantly and went into the studio together. The result pricked up ears at record labels up and down Music Row. DreamWorks Nashville principal executive James Stroud was so enthusiastic, he flew his private jet down to rural Tennessee to see Darryl in action at the Moose Lodge.
"Down home" is where Darryl Worley has remained. Although
his career is based in Music City, he is still a resident of Hardin County.
