Green was raised on the sounds of traditional country, bluegrass and southern gospel music. His full-length debut album DIFFERENT ‘ROUND HERE  was released in 2019 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.”

Named ACM’s 2020 New Male Artist of the Year Green recently released his latest EP IF IT WASN’T FOR TRUCKS with Billboard noting the “accessible, winning songs” and American Songwriter proclaiming 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.  For more information and upcoming tour dates visit RileyGreenMusic.com.
