Riley Green is performing at The St. Augustine Amphitheatre on Thursday, July 6, 2023 with special guests Corey Smith and Channing Wilson.
His musical perspective is hailed by Rolling Stone as “Drinks-in-the-air Nineties Country at an Alabama vs. Auburn tailgate”. And, that’s just the type of energy fans have come to expect from Riley Green.
The Jacksonville, AL native 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. That stage laid a foundation for the songs Riley would craft in the years to come and values learned from another generation.
Riley fittingly shares co-writing credits posthumously alongside his two grandfathers on the 2xPLATINUM 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” featuring the PLATINUM-certified hit No. 1 “There Was This Girl”. MusicRow noted his “great Country vocal, honest presentation and true-to-life lyrics”.
His “Behind the Bar” collection with GOLD-certified “If It Wasn’t For Trucks” and “We Out Here: Live” followed as the 2020 ACM Awards New Male Artist of the Year has “brought Country back to its roots: the blue collar sounds for the working man, by the working man” (Whiskey Riff). His collaboration with Thomas Rhett on “Half Of Me” earned Riley his second No. 1 at Country radio as he continues to deliver tracks directly to his loyal following.
Named a CMT ‘Listen Up Artist’, Riley was also voted as one of the CRS 2020 New Faces. And he earned MusicRow’s Breakout Artist of the Year.
