Pro-golfer John Daly has traded in his golf clubs, at least temporarily for a guitar an a microphone. Daly is releasing an album of heartfelt and semi-autobiographical songs through Nashville-based digital label, GMV Nashville.
This effort, affectionately titled "I Only Know One Way", is Daly’s second album release and features a mix of Country and blues-infused rockers, contemplative ballads and the occasional cover song (Bob Dylan’s “Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door”). Why did he not stop at one album is a question for the future.
The insightful “I Only Know One Way” features chart-topping former Hootie and the Blowfish front man and current LowCountry superstar, Darius Rucker. Rucker also helped Daly co-write the title track. So how bad can it be?
“All of the songs have a meaning to them. Most of the record is happening – or has happened in my life. I hope people can relate to some of the troubles I have had along the way. Everyone around the world has problems, and I want to connect with those people.”
-John Daly in an interview with Airplay Direct
I Only Know One Way is currently available as a digital album throughGMV Nashville , an online record label that specializes in releases from classic and contemporary Country artists, such as Charlie Daniels, Toy Caldwell, Lane Brody and more. Much of the label’s catalog is out-of-print or hard to find titles. GMV also features special projects like Daly’s I Only Know One Way and the epic three-disc patriotic collection, This Is My America.
Following his debut release, My Life, Daly was encouraged to record a follow-up album by friend and Nashville industry veteran, Herky Williams. Williams connected Daly with songwriter and record producer David Malloy who produced the 11-track collection in Nashville.
