Derek George (born in Philadelphia, Mississippi) is an American country music singer, songwriter, and guitarist. He is known for his work in Pearl River and Williams Riley, and his frequent collaborations with Bryan White.
In the 1990s, George was a member of the band Pearl River. After Pearl River lost its recording contract, George and some of the other band members were recruited for Bryan White's road band. At the time, White was a T-shirt vendor for the band and a roommate of George's who had just been beginning his singing career.
In 1996, George and White, along with Bryan Austin and Jeffrey Steele, appeared on the song "Brickyard Boogie" on Steve Wariner's No More Mr. Nice Guy. This song was nominated for the Best Country Instrumental at the 1997 Grammy Awards.
