Darryl Worley: Singer, Angler, Hunter and One Of The Good Guys
By Phil Bourjaily
One of the other guests in the Texas turkey camp where I hunted was singer Darryl Worley, who brought his guitar and did some picking at night.
Besides being a nice guy, being a genuine authority on coon hunting and catfishing, and having several hit records, Worley is devoted to entertaining our men and women in uniform. His next stop after Texas was South Korea, as seen in the video below.
That was Worley’s second trip to Korea. As he pointed out, “Our troops there are kind of forgotten, but that war never ended.” He and his band have also made nine trips to entertain the troops in the Middle East. He told me he has played in every FOB in Iraq and Afghanistan, including some it would have been much safer not to visit.
Anyway, I just thought you would like to know that Darryl Worley is one of the good guys.
