PLEASANT VIEW, Tenn. – Veteran-owned and veteran-operated Leatherwood Distillery has partnered with country music hitmaker Darryl Worley to launch a limited-edition spirits line to help raise money and awareness for veteran and military organizations on the heels of the 20th anniversary of 9/11. Known for his patriotic anthem, “Have You Forgotten?,” Worley has been a staunch supporter of the US military having traveled abroad on multiple Stars for Stripes and USO tours to perform on bases in war zones.
“Darryl is the perfect promotional partner for this endeavor as we are coming upon the 20th anniversary of the horrific tragedy of 9/11 and his song ‘Have You Forgotten’ really makes us think of how many have forgotten what took place that day,” says Andy Lang, President of Leatherwood Distillery. “September 11 is nothing to celebrate, it’s a time to remember how all our lives changed and those who lost their lives for no reason.”
Leatherwood Distillery has created 2021 bottles of Darryl Worley Bourbon, Darryl Worley Rye Whiskey, and Darryl Worley Sweet Feed Whiskey as well as 2021 bottles of Have You Forgotten Darryl Worley Moonshine in Peach, Apple Pie, and Elderberry flavors.
About Darryl Worley:
Worley debuted on the country charts with a trio of top-15 hits in 2000-01, “When You Need My Love,” “A Good Day to Run” and “Second Wind.” His breakthrough year was 2002 when Worley’s touching ballad “I Miss My Friend,” the title tune to his second CD, became his first No. 1 hit. After he spent Christmas 2002 entertaining America’s troops in Afghanistan, Kuwait, and Uzbekistan, he came home and wrote the patriotic anthem “Have You Forgotten?,” which became his second No. 1 song and remained at the top of the charts for six weeks. In the summer of 2004, “Awful Beautiful Life” was released and soon rocketed up the country music charts to become a multi-week No. 1. Darryl has continued to release albums and participate in philanthropic endeavors. For more information on Darryl Worley, visit darrylworley.com.
