Grand Ole Opry Veteran Daryl Mosley comes to Murphysboro!             Waverly, TN – The community is invited to attend a concert by singer, songwriter, and storyteller Daryl Mosley on Sunday, November 3 at 5:00pm at Murphysboro United Methodist Church, 1500 Pine Street, Murphysboro, IL. From countless appearances on “The Grand Ole Opry” to classic shows at the famous Bluebird Cafe to a touring schedule of over 150 concerts per year, singer/songwriter Daryl Mosley has been sharing his songs and his stories with America for over 30 years.  Daryl has written three Song of the Year award winners, six of his songs have made it to number one, and he has twice been named Songwriter of the Year! His songs have been recorded by dozens of artists ranging from bluegrass legend Bobby Osborne to country star Lynn Anderson to Southern Gospel’s The Booth Brothers, and have been featured on television shows ranging from “American Idol” to “The View.”  One of his best-known songs, “(Ask the Blind Man) He Saw It All,” was named one of the top Southern Gospel songs of all time! Gospel music legend Bill Gaither calls Daryl “a poet-and we don’t have many poets left!” Daryl says he just writes and sings songs about real life and real people; songs about faith and home and community are the foundation of his music because those are the things that are most precious to him. He says, “I love songs about how it used to be, or could be still, or might have been.” Daryl is also a gifted storyteller, and he shares entertaining tales of the inspiration behind his songs, his years at the Grand Ole Opry, and his faith. The concert is part of the church’s Bluegrass and Barbeque Youth Fundraiser, which includes a barbeque dinner with all the trimmings from 3pm – 5pm with the concert beginning at 5pm.  Tickets are $20.00 per person or $50.00 for a family up to six.  Tickets are available at the church office or may be purchased at the event.  For additional information, contact Patty Lindley at 502 262-0428 or the church at 618 687-2317. ____________________________________________________________________________________________
