Grand Ole Opry vet Daryl Mosley comes to area

The community is invited to attend one of two concerts by singer, songwriter and storyteller Daryl Mosley Sunday in Morgantown.

He will perform at 9 a.m. at Woodland United Methodist Church, 1846 Mileground Road, and at 11 a.m. at Avery United Methodist Church, 1152 Cheat Road.

From countless appearances on “The Grand Ole Opry” to classic shows at the famous Bluebird Cafe to a touring schedule of over 150 concerts per year, Mosley has been sharing his songs and his stories with America for over 30 years.

He has written three Song of the Year award winners, eight of his songs have made it to number one, and he has twice been named Songwriter of the Year.

Mosley’s songs have been recorded by dozens of artists ranging from bluegrass legend Bobby Osborne to country star Lynn Anderson to Southern Gospel’s The Booth Brothers, and have been featured on television shows ranging from “American Idol” to “The View.”

One of his best-known songs, “(Ask the Blind Man) He Saw It All,” was named one of the top Southern Gospel songs of all time.

Gospel music legend Bill Gaither calls Mosley “a poet — and we don’t have many poets left.”

“I just write and sing songs about real life and real people; songs about faith and home and community are the foundation of my music because those are the things that are most precious to me,” Mosley said.

The concerts are free to the public but a love offering will be taken at each.
