DARRYL LABEL-LESS, BUT HAPPY

The recent closing of DreamWorks left Darryl Worley without a record label—and he's just fine with that. Darryl told the Maryville Daily Times that he's been reassessing his musical direction and writing new songs. Of those new tunes, he says, "It's different for me. It's pretty edgy and funky and a little more upbeat and fun. I think country music has gone back to that sound—that honky-tonk stuff, with everybody drinking and partying and doing their thing." Darryl's new material is quite different from his biggest hit, the serious-minded "Have You Forgotten?"—but he says he's just going with the musical flow. "People don't want to hear about hard times; they want to have a good time," he states. "And if the audience is moving in that direction, you have to move with them. I'm perfectly capable of doing that; I did it for 15 years before I got a record deal, so I'm having a blast writing these new songs."
