"A Good Day to Run" is a song co-written and recorded by American country music artist Darryl Worley. It was released in September 2000 as the second single from his debut album Hard Rain Don't Last. It peaked at number 12 on the United States Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart and at number 76 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100.[1] The song was written by Worley and Bobby Tomberlin.


The song is an uptempo and the narrator is a blue-collar worker who breaks free of his day job. He states it looks like "a good day to run".


In one positive review, Chuck Taylor for Billboard Magazine called Worley's phrasing "undeniably country and as appealing as his performance was on the ballad 'When You Need My Love'", and said he "demonstrates more vocal personality."[2] Billboard magazine also called "A Good Day to Run" a "free-wheeling, light-spirited cut" and a "strong single."[3]

Music video[edit]

The music video was directed by Trey Fanjoy, and features Worley singing the song on a stage outside, and on the road in a Jeep Wrangler. The video was filmed near Worley's hometown in Savannah, Tennessee.
