DARRYL WORLEY will be putting the ROCK in ROTR ’19!
For the last year, when Darryl Worley has performed his No. 1 country hit, “I Miss My Friend,” in concert, he’s often dedicated it to late country singer Troy Gentry.
But when Worley showed up to perform at an all-star tribute to his friend Troy Gentry at Nashville’s Grand Ole Opry House on January 9th, he decided instead to play his determined anthem, “Second Wind.” Gentry – one half of the award-winnning duo Montgomery Gentry – was killed in a 2017 helicopter crash.
“I prayed about this, because in a situation like this, you want to do the right thing,” Worley said backstage. “And it was almost like I heard him say, ‘Hey, you know what? I’m OK. It’s good over here. But I’ve still got family and loved ones back there that are struggling. So don’t do a song for me tonight. Do a song for them.’
The “C-Ya On The Flipside” concert was co-hosted by country giant Blake Shelton and Storme Warren. Worley shared the stage with a dozen-plus performers including Gentry’s bandmate Eddie Montgomery, Rascal Flatts, Dierks Bentley, Chris Janson, Jimmie Allen and Dustin Lynch.
From the Flipside to Polk County Lakeside, ROTR can’t wait to introduce you to the Nashville recording artist on Friday, April 5th!
