“All of us in the room get to feel like we’re just sitting around with friends, laughing and enjoying some music.” - Darryl Worley, country music artist

Country music star and songwriter Darryl Worley will host songwriters Andy Griggs, Wynn Varble and Mark Nesler for the Darryl Worley and Friends Songwriters’ Event at Bumpus Harley-Davidson of Murfreesboro (2250 NW Broad St.) at 6 p.m. Tuesday, July 21, 2015. Funds raised will benefit the Darryl Worley Foundation with its current and upcoming projects.

General admission is $75 at the door; corporate table sponsorships are $750 and will accommodate eight people. The price covers drink and meal tickets. Golden Circle table sponsorships are $1,500; they include table seating for 10 people, drinks, meal tickets and a meet-and-greet with the artists.

The artists will perform familiar hits, including Varble’s song, “Have You Forgotten,” a 2003 collaboration with Worley. Griggs, whose first single was “You Won’t Ever Be Lonely,” with Worley and Nesler, who wrote Worley’s hit single “I Miss My Friend,” will perform hits throughout the night, also.

Known for his patriotism and support for U.S. troops, Worley has had 20 hit singles and six albums. He said the songwriters’ event gives the audience a chance to listen to the artists’ stories behind their hit songs. “All of us in the room get to feel like we’re just sitting around with friends, laughing and enjoying some music,” Worley said.

The songwriters’ sessions kicks off the 14th annual Tennessee River Run schedule, which includes several activities planned through October including a boat poker run, golf tournament, bass tournament, motorcycle ride and a 5K. The Tennessee River Run concert will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 3, 2015, in downtown Savannah. Gates will open at noon beginning with children’s games and activities.

Tennessee River Run events have raised more than $1.4 million for the Darryl Worley Foundation, which has existed since 2002 to serve special needs for people in the Mid-South. The foundation supports several organizations such as the Carl Perkins Center in Jackson, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis and the Darryl Worley Cancer Treatment Center in Savannah.
