Daryl Mosley - Mayberry State of Mind
Daryl writes and sings about small town life, faith in God, family, and the best parts of how life once was and still could be. For over three decades, the combination of these exquisitely crafted songs along with his understated delivery and warm, gentle personality has been engaging music lovers in a way that few artists can.
When not on the road touring, Mosley resides in his hometown of Waverly, Tennessee - the small, Mayberryesque hamlet just west of Nashville where he grew up. The experiences of life, work, faith, and love that resonate so strongly in this community are the very foundation of his songwriting. Daryl writes about real, salt-of-the-earth people and their personal struggles and victories on life's journey. And when he sings those songs, the characters and scenes come alive as if they were sitting on the front porch with you. Music legends from Tom T. Hall and Ronnie Milsap to Bill Gaither and Dave Loggins have praised both Mosley's singing prowess and his gifts as a songwriter. Mosley's songsmith abilities have led to him being honored as Songwriter of the Year three times, nine #1 songs, and three Song of the Year awards. Other artists who have recorded his songs include - Lynn Anderson, Bobby Osborne, Les Butler, the Booth Brothers, and The Grascals. Songwriting legend Jerry Salley says Mosley is “easily one of the finest songwriters in our business.”
Throughout the 1990s, Mosley toured as the lead vocalist with the much-celebrated Bluegrass group New Tradition. In 2001, he joined the legendary Osborne Brothers. In 2010, he formed the band The Farm Hands who quickly became one of the most awarded acts in Bluegrass. Yet, the common thread throughout his career has been the union of Mosley's picturesque songs and his easy vocal delivery. This marriage has taken him to the pinnacle of musical stages and venues ranging from the Grand Ole Opry to the legendary Bluebird Cafe to even West Point Military Academy. In 2020, Mosley stepped more directly into the spotlight with the release of his first solo project for Pinecastle Records -The Secret Of Life. It was a collection of eleven songs written or co-written by Mosley that were both plain spoken and lyrically clever. The album reached #1 on the Roots Music Report as did the first single, “A Few Years Ago” and the spiritual “Do What The Good Book Says.” Critically-acclaimed by both the media and industry peers, The Secret Of Life was praised by American Songwriter, SiriusXM, Bluegrass Today, Country Music People, Bluegrass Unlimited, MusicRow, Country Standard Time, No Depression, and more.
