More on Darryl Worley

The rich, reedy tones and all-American, blue-collar themes in his No. 1 hits “I Miss My Friend,” “Awful, Beautiful Life” and “Have You Forgotten?” are reminders of the down-to-Earth, Haggard-like Worley you always knew. The island vibes and blue-eyed soul in new songs “It’s Good To Be Me,” “Lay It On Me” and “Lonely Alone” suggest there’s another, almost-funky, version of Worley that’s been kept under wraps. The alternate sides are both on display in “Second Wind: Latest and Greatest,” a project that mixes the traditional-country history he established in Nashville with the ragged soul that’s deep in the bones of Muscle Shoals, a musical Alabama hotbed where Worley got his start. The area hosted hit sessions for Aretha Franklin, Bob Seger, Wilson Pickett and The Rolling Stones, and the sweaty swagger of the region’s recording studios was a perfect fit for Worley as he recorded an album that reestablishes him in country culture.

More on Keith Anderson

Singer/Songwriter Anderson’s latest song, “I’ll Bring The Music,” sums him up to a T. That is one thing that you can always say about this academic athlete from Miami, Oklahoma, who has always excelled at anything he has put his mind to, is he will bring the music. Although he has co-written hits for other artists, most notably “Lost In This Moment,” the No. 1 smash for Big & Rich, which garnered him a CMA and ACM Song of the Year nomination, Anderson does not write with other artists in mind.

“I think I’ll always write about what I know and feel – and typically with myself in mind. However, I write a lot and I keep the songs that are really speaking to me when I’m recording, and pitch everything else to other artists,” he said.

Anderson also co-wrote the Grammy-nominated, “Beer Run (B Double E Double Are You In?)” for Garth Brooks and George Jones, “The Bed” for Gretchen Wilson, and “Barn Burner” for Jason Michael Carroll.
