Angie Dawn's Not So Secret Diary: Derryl Perry

by Angie Dawn / 965 days ago / Comments

Derryl Perry... I am not even sure where to begin. I fly into WUCZ 104.1 The Ranch radio station in Carthage, TN on two wheels. I fumble with my equipment bags and the tray of coffee that I had grabbed on my way through town for everyone at the station. I finally get in the door to start my quiet journey handing out cups when I hear this amazing guitar playing coming from another room. I peek inside and see this giant tall man (he was even sitting on a stool.) As he begins to put words with the music I hustle to grab my camera. Not wanting to miss anything I lean against the wall and claim my spot. What an amazing talent that I had right there in front of me. After his live radio performance, he came out of the room and I was right.. he towered over me.

Through his career, he has shared the stage with many artists including Derks Bently, Gary Allen, Montgomery Gentry, Joe Nichols, and Darius Rucker. In the brief time, I had to speak with him he had given me some great advice and pointers to help me out with a few things I have been working on. I had just met a true Texan gentleman, one that I will never forget. Y'all go check out his music but I am gonna warn ya beforehand that when you do I bet by the end of the second song you will have popped the top on a good ol' Coors light and started two-stepping. ~Angie

About Angie Dawn

Angie Dawn Journalist | Photographer

As a young child, our house was constantly filled with the good ol' country music. My grandma was a singer and songwriter.. she actually had a record and had written for the likes of Patsy Cline. I loved hearing that woman sing.. it was angelic. That old country music runs deep in my soul. I remember watching t.v. telling everyone that I would be on that grand ol' Opry stage one day. The fact that I can't carry a tune in a bucket wasn't gonna stop me. Lol... so the chance that I've been given to work with Center Stage Magazine is God sent.
