9/11 anthem ‘Have You Forgotten?’ singer re-releases song with message of unity in divided America

Darryl Worley is calling for Americans to come together amid the country’s division with a revamped version of his post-9/11 anthem, “Have You Forgotten?”

To mark the 20th anniversary of the 2003 mega-hit, the 58-year-old country singer teamed up with the original song’s co-writer, Wynn Varble, to pose a new question to the nation with the recently released “Have We Forgotten?”

While “Have You Forgotten?” was intended to serve as a reminder of the devastation wrought by the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the follow-up features retooled lyrics that promote a message of unity. 

In an interview with Fox News Digital, Worley explained that singer-songwriter Noah Gordon first approached him with the idea to offer a modern-day take on divisions ripping the country apart.

Worley told Fox News Digital he is focused on promoting “Have We Forgotten?” so the song’s message is heard by as many people as possible.

“It’s really not a project that is about trying to gain fame or fortune or any of that,” he said. “We just want people to hear this. We want it to get a chance to get out there, you know, whether it be through country radio cycles and circuits or if it’s just digital, it doesn’t matter. We just want people to hear the message.”
