Worley kicks off North Country Concert Series June 5 at casino


AKWESASNE – Akwesasne Mohawk Casino Resort’s North Country Concert Series officially kicks off June 5 with Darryl Worley.

He has topped the charts with singles including “I Miss My Friend,” “Awful, Beautiful Life” and “Have You Forgotten,” which accomplished the feat for one, two and an incredible seven weeks, respectively.

Throughout a career that has produced nearly 20 hit singles, including three #1s, as well as chart-topping albums and sales in the millions, Darryl Worley has set himself one primary goal.

“I’ve always set out to make sure every song on every album is a good one,” he says. “I want every cut to be a potential single.”

It is an approach that has helped to make Darryl a mainstay of modern country music. His unquestioned musical integrity earned him an enviable connection with the American public and a reputation as a genuinely traditional country artist who doesn’t follow trends or fads, but rather his own bedrock convictions as an artist and a person. It doesn’t hurt that he is a distinctive singer and first-rate songwriter whose music chronicles life, love and the world situation with equal facility.

Worley was recently interviewed on air by Johnny Taco of Wild Country 96.5FM. When asked if he’s ever been to the area, Worley said the north country has “some of the most beautiful places in the country.” Worley adds that acoustic concerts are “one of my favorite things to do because I’m a storyteller.”

Fans will get an up close and personal experience with Worley as he performs his acoustic concert at 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. June 5.

Ticket prices range from $30-$45 and are available for purchase online, in person at AMCR, or over the phone by calling 877-99CASINO.

Wild Country 96.5FM will also be hosting an official North Country Concert Series After Party in Cascades Lounge following each concert. Each After Party will feature a live country music DJ, Cascades drink specials, and official merchandise giveaways with Johnny Taco and the Wild Country team.
