Have You Forgotten?

In December 2002, Darryl Worley performed for United States soldiers in Afghanistan and Kuwait.

Worley debuted the song at the Grand Ole Opry one month later, on January 10, 2003.

Regarding his motivation for writing the song, Worley says, “I didn’t really care if I made a bunch of money from it. I did want the people that it was written for—the men and women that died in the tragedy of 9/11 and their families, the men and women that wore the uniforms here in our country and then last but not least, our military troops that were in Afghanistan takin’ care of business—I just wanted to do something to honor them.” Continue reading

I Just Came Back From A War

A musical tribute by Darryl Worley honoring those who have come back from the fighting.

The song was inspired by a war veteran Worley met who was having a difficult time adjusting to life back home after being in a war zone for many months.

The strain of war must be incredible.” He adds, “This song is from the soldier’s perspective and the message is, ‘Hey man, cut me a little slack if I need a little time to re-adjust here. I’ll get there but be a little patient with me – I just came back from a war.” Continue reading
