We've been friends for a long time and it was great to catch up and you get to hear it all! Also, May marks the 35th Anniversary of my hit song, "Darlene." I hope you will join us because it's gonna be good."

T. Graham Brown is currently celebrating the 35th anniversary of his #1 hit, "Darlene." As one of his most requested songs, "Darlene" was released in May 1988. Written by Mike Geiger, Woody Mullis, and Ricky Ray Rector and produced by Ron Chancey, "Darlene" was released as the first single from his album, 'Come As You Were.' The song was Brown's third #1 and spent a total of fourteen weeks on the country charts.

After a recent performance at the North American Country Music Association International's annual event in Pigeon Forge, T. Graham Brown was presented with NACMAI's LEGEND Award and was then surprised by Ken Reynolds, President of the Kentucky Country Music Association, with the first-ever Kentucky Country Music Association's Humanitarian Award for Brown's hard work and fundraising efforts for the 2022 flood victims of Eastern Kentucky, along with a framed letter from the Governor of Kentucky, Andy Beshear. Also during the event, a display case was designed with a special jacket and other personal items, which were included as a way to commemorate Brown's four-decade-long career in country music and a place for fans to appreciate some of his most memorable moments and achievements.
