Country music star Darryl Worley will be the celebrity guest on the Santa Train when it makes its 74th journey, on Saturday, Nov. 19. He will accompany Santa and event sponsors CSX,  Dignity U Wear, Food City and the Kingsport Chamber of Commerce on the 110-mile trek.

“I’m honored to accompany the Santa Train as the celebrity guest this year,” Worley said. “The opportunity to give back and to be a part of a 74-year-old holiday tradition is one that I couldn’t pass up, and I look forward to being a part of it.”

Worley, who has three No. 1 singles on the Billboard U.S. country chart during his career, has been on the country music scene since 2000. Worley has released six albums during his career and as well as 18 singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts. 2017 is a big year for Worley, as the singer is planning to release his first-ever gospel album.

“We are thrilled to have Darryl Worley join us on this year’s Santa Train,” said Tori Kaplan, assistant vice president, corporate social responsibility, CSX. “The support we receive each year from celebrity guests is humbling, and we know Darryl will add to the holiday spirit of the Santa Train.”

The Santa Train makes 14 stops in Kentucky, Virginia and Tennessee and delivers toys, food and winter clothing to hundreds of children and families along the way. Fans can use the hashtag #santatrain16 to follow the train online and engage in the Santa Train conversation on social media.

Darryl Worley Gives Back to Fiji with “Rainmaker”

darryl worely

Last February when Cyclone Winston stormed the island nation of Fiji, country star Darryl Worley and his wife Kimberly were on the island to perform at “Tunes in the Tropics.” Had this been a storm that hit in the US, it would have been a Category 5 Hurricane.

Worley and his wife weathered the storm safely but the island of Fiji wasn’t as fortunate. According to reports, 44 people lost their lives. The estimated damage from the cyclone is around $485 million.

“This storm has changed the island nation of Fiji forever… it also changed our lives forever,” says Worley. “These are defining moments in our lives and, prayerfully, we take what we should from them. I believe that I live a fuller life because of my experiences. This experience has reminded me of why we are put here; to do all we can to help those less fortunate than we are and to live every moment like it is a precious gift, because it is. This event brought a whole new meaning to ‘count your blessings.'”

Worley wrote and recorded a new song, “Rainmaker,” after surviving Cyclone Winston.

“This song is a little outside the box for me but thanks to my co-writers, Jay Brunswick and Brock Berryhill, we got something that sounds great and different,” notes Worley. “The song itself is not exactly what I thought might come out of this experience and that’s a good thing. I think this song might make people take notice and help us help the people of Fiji.”

“Rainmaker” is available for download today on iTunes and With funds generated from the single downloads, Worley will make donations to the Cyclone Winston relief fund.

Worley adds, “Help us help Fiji by downloading ‘Rainmaker’ today!”
