After attending Jacksonville State University, Riley got his first big break on the CMT show Redneck Island. In 2013, he recorded his self-titled debut EP and found his audience in 2018 when it received a wide release.
Riley’s first full-length album “Different ‘Round Here” launched him onto the country music charts in 2019. “There Was This Girl” was the first hit followed by the sentimental favorite “I Wish Grandpas Never Died.” The album proved that there was an audience for all the songs Riley had labored over.
The album’s success landed Riley a headlining spot on the Outlaws Like Us tour with multiple sold-out stops. He’s also toured with Brad Paisley, Jason Aldean and Jon Pardi. Green was selected to be a member of the Opry’s NextStage Program, fulfilling his childhood dream of performing on the Grand Ole Opry stage.
