Born in Jacksonville, Alabama, Riley Green was raised on the sounds of traditional Country, Bluegrass, and Southern Gospel music. He 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. Riley shared the stage with him and other men of his generation, laying a foundation for the songs he’d craft in the years to come. His full-length debut album DIFFERENT ‘ROUND HERE was released in 2019 via BMLG Records and has produced GOLD-certified No. 1 hit “There Was This Girl” and PLATINUM-certified single “I Wish Grandpa’s Never Died” – a song People praised “might take him to a whole new stratosphere,” and one he shares co-writing credits posthumously alongside his two grandfathers. Highlighting his Southern roots and relatability, he co-wrote each track offering a perspective Rolling Stone describes as "Drinks-in-the-air Nineties country at an Alabama vs. Auburn tailgate." Riley recently released BEHIND THE BAR, a seven song collection which features current single “If It Wasn’t For Trucks” which MusicRow praises saying “Riley’s great country vocal, honest presentation and true-to-life lyrics raise this one head and shoulders above the rest.” Named 2020 ACM Awards New Male Artist of the Year, Billboard describes Riley’s music as “accessible, winning songs” while American Songwriter proclaims his “storytelling talents shine bright.” Named a CMT “Listen Up Artist” and one of MusicRow’s 2019 “Next Big Things he was also voted as one of CRS’ 2020 New Faces and was named MusicRow’s Breakout Artist of the Year at their Country Breakout Awards. In addition to his own successful headline dates, he has previously hit the road with Jason Aldean, Brad Paisley and Jon Pardi.
