Rolling Stone hailed his musical perspective as “Drinks-in-the-air Nineties Country at an Alabama vs. Auburn tailgate,” and that is just the type of energy fans have come to expect from Riley Green. Raised on the sounds of traditional country, bluegrass and southern gospel music, the Jacksonville, Ala. native learned the spirit of songwriting and performing at a young age while spending time with his grandfather, Bufford Green, who ran the Golden Saw Music Hall. That stage laid a foundation for the songs Green would craft in the years to come and values learned from another generation. He fittingly shares co-writing credits posthumously alongside his two grandfathers on the two-time platinum-certified "I Wish Grandpas Never Died,” which People praised “might take him to a whole new stratosphere.”
Evident on his debut album “Different ‘Round Here” (BMLG Records), featuring the platinum-certified hit No. 1 “There Was This Girl,” MusicRow noted his “great Country vocal, honest presentation and true-to-life lyrics.” Green’s “Behind the Bar” collection with gold-certified “If It Wasn’t for Trucks” and “We Out Here: Live” followed by the 2020 ACM Awards “New Male Artist of the Year” has “brought the country back to its roots: the blue-collar sounds for the working man, by the working man” (Whiskey Riff).
Green recently released two new singles “God Made a Good Ole Boy,” and “Raised Up Right,” as eager fans await Green’s next single “Different ‘Round Here (featuring Luke Combs)” on Thursday, May 11. His collaboration with Thomas Rhett on "Half of Me" earned Green his second No. 1 at Country radio as he continues to deliver tracks directly to his loyal following with the recent release of “Hell of A Way to Go,” “Miles on Main” and “I Hope She’s Drinking Tonight.” Named a CMT “Listen Up Artist,” Green was also voted as one of the CRS “2020 New Faces” and earned MusicRow’s “Breakout Artist of the Year.” In addition to his headline dates, Green is currently on the road in support of the Luke Combs World Tour, which began in March. He has previously hit the road with Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean, Brad Paisley, Jon Pardi and Dierks Bentley.
