Darryl Worley to perform at Ice Breaker Reception.

Born and raised in southern Tennessee by a Methodist minister and a church-choir mom he describes as a “prayer warrior,” Country music singer and songwriter Darryl Worley started his musical career at the FAME Studio in Muscle Shoals. Worley visited Kuwait and Afghanistan during the Christmas season of 2002, and he was inspired by the dedication and sacrifice of soldiers who put their lives on the line for their beliefs. Shortly after his return, he co-wrote “Have You Forgotten?” with Wynn Varble, practically demanding that America keep its focus in its battle against terrorists. The song spent seven weeks at #1 on the Billboard country singles chart, one of only five titles to reign that long during the 21st century’s first decade. He will perform at the opening Ice Breaker Reception for the Symposium.
