Darryl Worley’s Tennessee River Run Lineup Announced

Darryl Worley’s Tennessee River Run, presented by Bumpus Harley-Davidson, will bring David Lee Murphy, John Anderson, Badfinger, Black Oak Arkansas and special guest Zoe Z to the stage with Worley in downtown Savannah on Saturday, September 15. The 2012 Battle of the Bands winner will kick off the concert at 3:00 p.m.; gates will open at 2:00 p.m.

Worley established the Tennessee River Run to serve the region he calls home. The Tennessee River Run benefits 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. In commenting on the festival’s 11th year, Worley said, “I think it speaks volumes about the people involved in Tennessee River Run that this event has made it past the 10-year mark and we’re still going strong!”

Tickets are $30 until the day of the show and $35 at the gate. They are available at the Darryl Worley Foundation Office at 325 Main St. in Downtown Savannah, Hardin County Convention and Visitors Bureau and all banks in Hardin County. Individuals also can click HERE or call 866-484-3877 to pay by credit card. Admission for middle and high school students is $20, children ages 7-12 is $15, and children 6 and younger enter free with a paying adult. Gold Circle Seating is $100 and is available in advance only.

A few days of events make up the Tennessee River Run celebration. The Cowboy Boots, Cocktail Dresses and Country Music Songwriters in the Round will be held Thursday, Sept. 13, on the lawn of the historic home of Savannah Mayor, Bob Shutt and his wife. Dinner will be at 6:30 p.m., with music beginning at 7:00 p.m. Sponsorship tables for 10 people are available for $5,000, $2,500 and $1,500. Individual tickets are $100 per person. This event is the fourth and final in the 2012 series of Darryl Worley and Friends Songwriters’ Events, which have been sponsored by Bumpus Harley-Davidson in Collierville, Murfreesboro and Jackson. To date, the songwriters’ events have raised more than $113,000 for the foundation.

The TRR Golf Tournament will be Friday, Sept.14, at Shiloh Golf Course in Adamsville, and the Battle of the Bands finale will be that night at 8:00 p.m. at Freddy T’s in Pickwick. The bass tournament will begin on Saturday, Sept. 15, and conclude on Sunday, Sept. 16. Saturday also will bring a 5K run, a motorcycle poker run, a youth fishing tournament and an arts and crafts fair. The final event of the Tennessee River Run will be the concert in downtown Savannah Saturday evening with Worley, Murphy, Anderson, Badfinger, Black Oak Arkansas, Zoe Z (vocalist and cellist) and the 2012 Battle of the Bands winner.

Proceeds from the Tennessee River Run fund the Darryl Worley Foundation. The foundation, a 501c3 public benefit corporation, has existed since 2001 to serve special needs for people in the Mid-South.
