Catch Daryl Today on WSMV TV’s “Today In Nashville” & Tomorrow On Circle TV/WSM Radio’s “Coffee, Country & Cody” Show
CD Celebration Show Set For July 21 In Waverly, TN @ The Songs of Humphreys County
Nashville, Tenn. – Award-winning songwriter Daryl Mosley’s third solo album, A LIFE WELL LIVED (Pinecastle Records), delivers an 11-song collection of heartfelt hometown stories. Available tomorrow, the disc offers reflections on family, faith, and friendship – all in Mosley’s singular voice, which Americana Highways calls “a blessing that just might come from another world.”
Three of the album’s tracks have premiered this week: The Bluegrass Situation featured “Nobody But Her,” The Country Note highlighted “The Bible In The Drawer,” and Roughstock re-lived the good ol’ days with the premiere of “Back When We Were Boys. AIM Country TV began spotlighting Daryl last week with an interview and one-song performance that wraps tomorrow.
Produced by Daryl and The Grascals’ Danny Roberts, the project showcases superb musicianship that Country Music People Magazine (UK) notes is “top notch.” Mosley thumps the bass throughout, while Roberts brings his usual flawless mandolin work to every track. Tony Wray rules on guitar and banjo, while Adam Haynes rips the fiddle, and various special guest background vocalists round out the magic.
Tastemakers are already praising A LIFE WELL LIVED, with Alan Cackett Reviews saying, “this album has a compelling and entrancing beauty, both in sound and lyrical content.” Cross Country Magazine (UK) notes that “This is a story song album that makes for great listening … Bluegrass just how it should be.” Stacy’s Music Row Report describes the collection as a “carefully crafted, memorable contribution” for Bluegrass and Country music lovers.” Wheel Country Music calls the outing simply, “the finest music.”
The project has also enjoyed early commercial success, with the title track receiving an enthusiastic response at Bluegrass radio when released earlier this year. “Big God” (featuring Ronnie Booth of the award-winning The Booth Brothers) has also made inroads; it was issued exclusively to Gospel outlets and reached the #1 spot on that genre’s chart in April. Daryl’s current single/video is “Mayberry State Of Mind.”
