Worley & Friends to make a stop at Bumpus
Country music star and songwriter Darryl Worley will play host to hit songwriters Walt Aldridge, Brett Jones and Jim "Moose" Brown in Murfreesboro on Tuesday, July 10, for the Darryl Worley and Friends Songwriters' Event.
Held at Bumpus Harley-Davidson at 2250 N.W. Broad St., the show will begin at 7 p.m., with doors opening at 6:30 p.m.
The performance will benefit the Darryl Worley Foundation, which supports a variety of organizations, including St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Le Bonheur Children's Medical Center and the Darryl Worley Cancer Treatment Center.
"This is a night where we have a rare opportunity hear the songwriters perform their hits and tell the stories behind them," Worley said. "All of us in the room get to feel like we're just sitting around with friends, laughing and enjoying some music. So many people give to make this evening a great one that's all about helping others — from the songwriters to the Bumpus family to the auction donors to the guests."
Guests at the event will have an opportunity to purchase several valuable items at auction. For more information, contact Bumpus Harley-Davidson of Murfreesboro at 615-849-8025.
