Neighbors

There are certain days, that I am the most energetic person in the world. The kind of days where I believe that I can do almost anything. Of course you have to remember, I am a musician. That being said you have to realize that I’ve been doing so much with so little for so long, I can dang near do anything with nothing.

Today was one of those days. After a grand total of about 2 hours sleep, considering I was up all night watching the weather, I jumped right out of b...

Bills-Bills-Bills

Posted by Terry Wooley on Thursday, April 21, 2011, In : Words By Terry 
I have decided to write a letter to postmaster general in Washington D.C., and request another postal carrier to deliver my mail. It is not I dislike the carrier that I have, and it is not that they have done anything physically, emotionally, or personally to me, it is simply that they don’t know how to deliver anything to my mailbox other than BILLS.

Every day when I retrieve my mail, there are handfuls of past due notices, collection notices, disconnect notices, well you get the pi...

Trouble with Traffic

Posted by Terry Wooley on Wednesday, April 20, 2011, In : Words By Terry 
With all the traffic on the highway these days, you would think some folks would actually learn how to drive. There are just to many people who don’t pay attention
when they are behind the wheel.


Just today I was driving down the interstate when out of nowhere a big truck almost ran me over. Now if I hadn’t looked up from my cell phone when I did, I would have been the rear bumper on this 18 wheeler. It caused me to completely loose the text I had started. Now I had been working o...

It's all in His hands

Posted by Terry Wooley on Tuesday, April 19, 2011, In : Words By Terry 
It was January the 8th of 2008, and I was on my way from my home in Central Ky, to Nashville for a business meeting that I had scheduled regarding several up and coming shows, for myself and the band that I had assembled. The weather was nice, the sun was shining, the birds were singing, all in all it was a beautiful day. Kind of strange for it to be that warm and that nice in January, but I wasn’t about to question it or complain about it. Lord knows I complain about enough. I stoppe...

The whole truth and nothing but the Cyber-truth

Posted by Terry Wooley on Monday, April 18, 2011, In : Words By Terry 
I woke up this morning to the sound of a cell phone beep, alerting me to the fact that I had an e-mail telling me that my on-line farm that I had worked on for so many hours, cultivating, planting, harvesting, decorating all while seated at my desk slaving over my keyboard had been repossessed because I had failed to make my imaginary payment to the off-shore cyberspace banker in charge of controlling all internet properties.

I lost it all. The golden chicken that lays the beautifully ...

I know what my problem is.

Posted by Terry Wooley on Monday, April 18, 2011, In : Words By Terry 
I was standing in line at a major retailer, that I won't mention the name, and it suddenly hit me like a ton of bricks why I am like I am. I'm not saying that's a bad thing, cause I definitely have my moments, but the very reason I turned out the way that I turned out is because I didn't have an x-box or a play station when I was growing up. Forget the fact that the bathroom was in a little house in the backyard, that made for an interesting trip in the middle of the night when the snow...

It's all about the song

Posted by Terry Wooley on Monday, April 18, 2011, In : Words By Terry 

It’s almost midnight, and I’ve been trying to finish this new song I’m working on for what seems like days. When I sat down with my guitar in my hand a little over 4 hours ago, I really thought it would be a quick write. I had the idea, I had the music, had the beginning guitar riffs, had the perfect ending, and then I realized there was a big hole in the middle where the rest of the song ought to go. It started great, first couple lines, and I was sure this was going to be a sma...

About Me


Terry Wooley Born on a small family farm in central Kentucky to hard working God fearing parents, Terry learned the meaning of responsibility at a very early age. While most of his schoolmates were playing and having fun, Terry was busy tending to the crops and cattle and polishing his guitar and songwriting talents. With the nearest neighbor almost a mile away and very few friends to pass the time with, he spent most of his spare time perfecting his craft, always dreaming of creating music. At the ripe old age of 8, he persuaded his parents to allow him to enter a local talent contest. They agreed and Terry walked away with all the hardware, performing a solo with only himself and a guitar almost as big as he was. A few years passed and he decided to set out and make his mark in the music world, traveling all over the world fronting and playing guitar for many legends and current and future superstars, and in 1982 became one of the few acts chosen to perform the entire run of the World’s Fair in Knoxville, Tennessee. Terry’s guitar playing always left him in great demand as a session player, and traveling musician, playing on countless albums and road shows. Known as one of the most prolific songwriters to ever pick up a pen, his songs have always been highly sought after by major stars and beginning artist alike. Well respected and admired by musicians and entertainers the world over, he has branched out into other areas of the entertainment business. Terry founded One BAR Records, an independent label to help further the careers of young artist, Lexie Rae Music, a publishing company to handle the many songs he has written, and Flip Flop Productions, a production company to produce young talent and help guide them along the path to stardom. His greatest passion has always been writing, producing and creating music that he feels will last for many years. With all of his many accomplishments and awards, Terry has somehow managed to remain in the background. However with his uncanny writing ability, his unequaled vocal talent, and his superb musicianship, he is quickly being pulled into the limelight. With the release of his critically acclaimed gospel album “SOLID GROUND” and his tribute album "ANY GIVEN DAY" and his tribute album to truck drivers "HIGHWAY FEVER" it is unlikely he will be able to stay out of the spotlight for long. Terry was honored to be able to write some music and lyrics for The World Global Peace Concert. With all of his many awards and accomplishments Terry still remains an unassuming man who is thankful and grateful for all that he has and all that has been given to him. “ I give the Lord all the credit and all the thanks” says Terry. And blessed he has been as many of today’s jingles, commercials, popular music and hit songs are influenced by the creative genius of the one and only Terry Wooley. Terry Wooley
