Sounds Like Life (Stroudavarious, 2009)

Darryl Worley

Reviewed by Michael Sudhalter

Never taking anything for granted. That's the point of Darryl Worley's song, You Never Know. The song might have a heavy theme about treating every day as if its your last. But that's the exception on a disc filled with fun-loving songs with a recurring theme of having a good ol' time.

Fellow country artists Jamey Johnson, Mel Tillis and Bill Anderson lend their voices on Don't Show Up (If You Can't Get Down).

But the highlight is definitely, Honkytonk Life - which truly describes life on the road from an artist's perspective - from his misspelled name on the marquee to wondering if the club managers are going to provide food and drinks for the band.

The first single, Sounds Like Life To Me, develops a heart-to-heart conversation between the narrator and a friend who's struggling with life situations. Kenny Chesney fans, beware. Worley steps into his territory on a song called Tequila on Ice. It has a relaxing theme that would fit in with that type of sound.
