America's Compassionate Army

America's Compassionate Army

I am a firm believer that things come our way, problems arise just to tempt us and either make us stronger or help us to find our weaknesses.  The good Lord knows I have many weakness.  I can't walk by a candy dish without filling my hands and pockets with sweets.  I am the poster child for potato chips, because I can not eat just one.  Really I can eat just one as long as it is one whole bag.  I drink coffee and softdrinks like they are water.  But o...

Friday The 13th

Friday the 13th

Friday the 13th is considered by many to be an unlucky day.  To me it is just another day but I'm sure it has in the past been considered by some as the day that everything could go wrong.  I guess I look at things somewhat different than most folks because in my case I try to find the good and humorous in everything.  Now don't get me wrong everything is not funny, everything is not humorous, and most of the time these ramblings are just that. Some truth mixed wi...

Nap Time

Nap Time

I spent last evening doing exactly what I should have been doing.  I went to church.  Now occasionally I have been known to nod off in the service, and I really don't know why.  The preacher is plenty loud enough, the seats are very uncomfortable, and his fire and brimstone messages usually leave me sweating bullets, and pretty convinced that he spent the entire week following me around taking notes on all the things I had done wrong, and then he prepared his sermon acc...

Political Aspirations

Political Aspirations

I am thinking seriously of going into politics. It really can’t be that hard. First I need to learn how to lie, cheat, steal, and spend my huge salaries while the rest of the civilized world goes hungry or starves. I also need to learn how to spend other people’s money with absolutely no concern of the hardships that it might put on any other human being. I also have to learn two words. NO COMMENT. Almost like when I got married for the first time. I onl...

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
