Memory Lane Mondays: Darryl Worley, Paul Overstreet

Mike Sudhalter  |  September 19, 2011


Darryl Worley has consistently had good songs, on and off the Country Top 40 Charts

I still remember the first time hearing Darryl Worley. He was singing "When You Need My Love," and the song struck a chord with me back in 2000.

At the time, I was dating and the song just made sense.

"A Good Day To Run" was also on that CD, and it made me think about doing something fun to get out of the monotony of going to classes every day during my second year of college.

Later on, Worley cut "Tennessee River Run," which was just a straight-up fun song that comes close to "Chattahoochee" in terms of Country Party Songs.

And "I Miss My Friend" is such a poignant song.

It's too bad that the radio doesn't play much Worley anymore, but such is the radio game, unless your name is George Strait.

Listening to Paul Overstreet always makes me happy.

Would you believe that he wrote, "She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy," for Kenny Chesney? Well, he did.

And there's few collaboration songs better than "I Won't Take Less Than Your Love" with Tanya Tucker and Paul Davis.

But for solo Overstreet, you've got to love "Take Another Run." Doesn't that song just improve your mood automatically and make you want to try harder at whatever it is you're doing?
