This is one of my very favorite songs from the album. I love that it brings my small town roots front and center but it’s more than just a tribute to where I grew up. In A Country Town is an anthem for anyone who has country and rural living in their heart. It’s a celebration of the simple things in life that made us who we are – Daryl Mosley.
Following the success of the first two singles, A Few Years Ago and the title-track, the singer/songwriter looks to showcase another side of the record. The upbeat down-home feel of In A Country Town spotlights Mosley’s world-class vocals, combined with his one-of-a-kind ability to tell a compelling story. The cut was written by the Waverly, Tennessee native, who also wrote (or co-wrote) every song on the album. If you listen close, you can also hear IBMA award winning vocalist Jeanette Williams singing harmony. It was co-produced by Grascals’ member Danny Roberts.

About Daryl Mosley:
Daryl is a gifted songwriter and storyteller who paints vivid pictures of life as it could be, used to be, or might have been. He’s not flashy; just a man with a guitar, a voice as smooth as molasses in winter, and some exquisitely-crafted songs that resonate deeply with people of all ages and backgrounds. Whether performing at an auditorium, festival, church, or songwriting venue, Mosley’s affable personality and remarkable songs engage the listener in a way that few artists can.
Mosley has traveled extensively in his professional career but has remained a resident 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.
Country music legend Ronnie Milsap has called himself “a real fan” of both Mosley’s songs and singing prowess. Legendary songwriters from Tom T. Hall to Tony Arata to Dave Loggins are among those who have sung his praises. Gospel music legend Bill Gaither said “Daryl is a poet-and we don’t have many poets left.” Mosley’s musical poetry has led to him being twice honored as Songwriter of the Year, seven #1 songs, and three Song of the Year awards. Other artists including Lynn Anderson, Bobby Osborne, Josh Williams, the Booth Brothers, and Marty Raybon are among the many who have recorded Daryl Mosley songs.
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 that quickly became one of the most awarded acts in bluegrass music. 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’s talents step brighter into the spotlight with the release of his first solo album. “The Secret of Life” on Pinecastle Records is an impressive collection of Daryl Mosley originals delivered pure and honest. From the retrospective “A Few Years Ago” to the eerie sales pitch of The Deal to the classic bluegrass attack on A Piece At A Time the album delivers nothing less than musical short stories. Each song stands alone and at the same time weaves together with the others like a tapestry of insight into the life and the heart of writer. Whether you hear Daryl on the radio, on television, or on the humblest or most renowned of concert stages, the message is always the same. Songs touting old school values, faith, slowing down and appreciating the things in life that truly matter are what he writes and what he sings. Because that’s just who he is.
