Darryl Worley’s 8th Annual Tennessee River Run, which took place Sept. 10-13 near Savannah, Tennessee, raised $175,000 for the Darryl Worley Foundation. The benefit included numerous events spread over four days, and benefited the building of a cancer treatment center at the Hardin County (Tennessee) Medical Center.

Tennessee River Run 2009 kicked off with an “Evening with Darryl Worley & Friends Fish Fry,” which featured a sold-out acoustic in-the-round concert and dinner with Worley and hit tunesmiths Walt Aldridge, Jim “Moose” Brown, Steve Leslie and Wynn Varble. Performers at the country concert on Saturday (9/12) included Coon Dog Funeral, Jonathan Singleton & the Grove, Caitlin & Will, Craig Morgan and Worley. Sunday’s community sing and picnic featured perennial favorites Geron Davis & Kindred Souls and Jason Crabb of The Crabb Family.

The next event to benefit the Darryl Worley Foundation is the Tennessee River Run Bass Fishing Tournament, Saturday, November 7 on Pickwick Lake. Interested anglers and sponsors can contact www.fishteamtrails.com for registration information, entrance fees, rules and payouts.
