University graduate Darryl Worley has made the most of his biology
degree in changes of his imagery from singer of war songs to lover.
The Tennessee preacher's son recently posed naked for Playgirl.
That was before he courted a sultry model named Magdalena in the video
for Nothing But A Love Thang from his fifth album Here And
"I'm gonna be honest with you," Worley revealed recently,
"it's an exciting thought to know you're gonna be rolling around
in bed with a supermodel chick. But both of us are married. It's kind
of an uncomfortable position."
Quite so - but not the reason Worley split with wife Beverley who
ran the Worleybird café in his hometown.
Worley once topped charts for seven weeks in 2003 with Have You
Forgotten and I Just Came Back From A War.
did a series of shows in Kuwait, Iraq and Afghanistan with fellow country
artist Mark Wills from December 13-24, 2006.
It was his
fourth tour of Iraq.
The singer has long ago broadened his musical palate from analysing military
battles to affairs of the heart.
Worley, 42 and 6 ft 6 in, acts out passion - not pain - in his video.
The singer lost his deal in the collapse of DreamWorks Records and surfaced
on much smaller 903 Music.
The label, owned by singer Neal McCoy, also collapsed in May this year
after having hits with McCoy song Billy's Got His Beer Goggles On
and Worley tune I Just Came Back From A War.

Peck, daughter of a U.S. Marine, shares charts but not themes with
Peck, 28, performs in a video for her reality rooted original Isn't
That Everything - one of four hits from her first self-titled
The North Carolina-born, Ohio-raised Peck wrote 8 of the 11 songs
on her debut disc.
She previously released several singles on DreamWorks Nashville, but
an album was shelved.
"Isn't That Everything really speaks very clearly to who
I am, where I came from and who I'll always be," Peck revealed
"It's a feel good song. It talks about what matters most in life
to me, the little things, the roof over your head, the food on your
table, the friends around you, good family, just the smallest things
in life that mean the biggest things to someone who's very grateful.
I am very grateful, and this song really captures it. It's upbeat,
it's tempo, it's a whole lot of fun to listen to and it really captures
who I am.
When I finished
writing this song with Tommy Lee James and Blair Daily, I was so excited!
We wrote this song about three and a half years ago and I've held onto
it for quite a while. I'm so glad it's on the record because it really
means a lot to me, and if you're wondering who I am, if you'll just listen
to this song, you'll get a really good idea."
the song's simple message.
"The lyrics are really clean and simple, and it's the type of a song
that's easy to listen to," she added.
"You understand when you hear it. It comes out like "I don't
have a million dollars in the bank (well I don't) but I've got food on
my table and gas in my tank sometimes!" When people say less is more,
I think that's true. It's the little things in life that mean the most."
