Nashville, TN (April 5, 2010) - On Friday, May 14 country music starDarryl Worley will host the annual "Hitmakers on the Harbor" event at the exclusive Pier 57 boat dealership in Pickwick, TN. "Hitmakers on the Harbor" is sponsored by local restaurant and bar, Freddy T's. Doors for the event open at 6:30 p.m. and the show begins at 7:00 p.m. Tickets are $75 per person or $750 for a table of 10 which includes the performance and a fish fry dinner.

"Hitmakers on the Harbor" is an in-the-round songwriter event featuring top hit-makers discussing the stories behind their songs. Joining Worley will be Jim "Moose" Brown, best known for his Grammy Award-winning song "It's Five O'Clock Somewhere" recorded by Alan Jackson and Jimmy Buffet, along with Walt Aldridge, who has written several Top 10 hits including Heartland's "I Loved Her First and Ronnie Milsap's "No Getting Over Me."  Brown also served as co-producer on Worley's current album, Sounds Like Life. The album includes the Top 10 hit, "Sounds Like Life to Me," and Worley's latest single, "Best of Both Worlds."

"Hitmakers on the Harbor" is the first of five songwriter events this year leading up to Worley's annual Tennessee River Run (Sept. 16-18), a four-day festival established by Worley for various charities funded by his foundation. Additional "Hitmakers and Harleys" events are slated for Wednesday, June 16, Tuesday, June 22 and Tuesday, June 29.

"I always look forward to getting together with these great writers. We always have such a good time," says Worley. "Not only are you getting a chance to connect with the music you love and hear the stories behind your favorite songs, it's also a great opportunity to raise money and help a lot of people who need it."
