Darryl Worley’s new single, “Rainmaker,” was written by Darryl after he and his wife Kimberly survived Cyclone Winston that ripped through the island of Fiji earlier this year. But the new song isn’t quite what you’d expect to hear from someone who witnessed complete destruction and escaped with his life – it’s actually quite the opposite. “Rainmaker” is about a relationship. Huh?

The “Have You Forgotten Singer” explained the connection to Nash Country Daily. “When you go through something significant, something you know you’re not going to forget, you always think ‘how can I write about this?’ and really move people? The title “Rainmaker” came to me from the storm, but I didn’t try to recreate my story. What if I just wrote a song with this title however it comes out? Between the good Lord and the island they gave me the title. But I wanted to write something that got in people’s heads and was contagious.”

Darryl did just that, even though he says it’s “a little bit outside of the box” for him. “Rainmaker” is a feel-good song about a passion and fondness for someone that you want to be their everything. And so far fan reaction has been tremendous.

Darryl adds, “Of course there are elements of the storm in the song, but it’s kind of sexy. That was my thought process. I wasn’t going to try to write a song that told people how my life was changed by the storm. That’d be very difficult to put into words.”

“Rainmaker” is available for download on iTunes and Amazon and proceeds from the song will benefit Cyclone Winston relief efforts.

Earlier this year Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard announced that while Florida Georgia Line would continue, both guys would also be venturing out to do their own musical projects. As their FGL song “Long Live” is knocking on the door to number-1, Tyler is also climbing the chart with Tim McGraw and their duet “Undivided.”

Now, Brian is giving fans a taste of what’s to come with his solo project – he shared, “There’s a new kind of cowboy in town…who’s ready to ride this wave? Can’t wait for y’all to hear this new music.”

Brian also made some news in announcing that he’s partnering with Warner Music Nashville when it comes to any future solo projects he has, “I couldn’t be more grateful for everyone who has helped me on my journey to get here. I’m humbled to team up with Warner Music Nashville to take the music I’ve been dreamin’ and schemin’ up to the next level. This is just the beginning of a whole new adventure. My vision for what’s next is a vibe and state of mind – get ready to ride the wave with ya Beach Cowboy, y’all!”
