Darryl Worley Weathers The Storm
May 15, 2009 at 1:56 PM (PT)
STROUDAVARIOUS RECORDS artist DARRYL WORLEY proved that some days ain't no picnic, even when you're a celebrity. Yesterday morning (05/14), DARRYL was scheduled to fly to BILLINGS, MT and then ride 140 miles to MILES CITY for a show at the SOUTHEASTERN MONTANA FAIRGROUNDS.
When he arrived at the NASHVILLE airport, he was informed his plane had been struck by lightning and the flight was canceled. Never one to miss a show, a private jet was arranged to fly him straight to MILES CITY. From that point things went smoothly enough and he hit the stage in MILES CITY on time, but just as he hit the stage a large wind storm blew in.
As DARRYL started the second song a 40-50 mph gust of wind lifted the lid off a road case, which flew directly at his microphone stand, and then hit him in the head. Emergency personnel rushed to the stage and bandaged a gash in his head as well as they could. As he was being transported to the emergency room, DARRYL was coherent enough to tell his tour manager, JOE MORRIS, he would come back and finish the show for any fans who stayed.
True to his word, after getting bandaged up, WORLEY returned and played another 50 minutes for the 800 people who stayed. For the latest on DARRYL, visit www.DarrylWorley.com.
