Riley Green

A Southern Gentleman with a love and passion for making people feel at home while entertained is what motivates Riley Green to write songs and perform every time he gets an opportunity.

Born in Jacksonville, Alabama on October 18th, 1988, Riley is the youngest of three children and has always been the entertainer of the family. Riley started playing guitar at age 10 and started writing music at age 14. He wrote his first song in 2007. “Escalade”, “Dream Girl” and “Sandy Beaches”, like many of his early songs, these were inspired by a young man’s quest to get girls.

One of Riley’s most inspiring songs, “God was in Bama This Year”, was written about his experiences and observations following the April 27th, 2011 tornadoes that devastated Alabama. Many people identified with the lyrics and requested that Riley perform it at home dedications and memorial services during the following Years. The opportunity to help his “neighbors” in their time of need is an honor that Riley took and takes Great Pride in.

Riley spent many days and nights playing guitar and singing with his grandfather, Bufford Green. Mr. Green opened a music hall in 2003, where the music goes from “The Bar Room to The Pulpit and back” each Friday Night. Granddaddy-Buford taught Riley a love for the sound of Old Traditional Country, Bluegrass and Southern Gospel Music. Riley performed at the Golden Saw Music Hall, singing songs like “Wreck on the
Highway” & “Precious Jewel” - by Roy Acuff, with his grandfather and other men of his generation. “My Best Friend” was written as a tribute to his Granddaddy-Buford and the influence he had on Riley’s life & music. Riley wrote “Line in the Water”, about fishing with his other grandfather, Granddaddy-Lendon, who also influenced him with his ability to
Truly Relax and Enjoy the “Southern Lifestyle”.

Many of Riley’s next generation of songs reflect on the experiences of a young southern man trying to find his place in the world. With a mixture of outlaw-rebellion and respect for tradition, Riley combined these values to create his own style. “A Little Hank” and “Almost” reflect the battle of values in the “Southern Society” and what his Grandfather referred to as “The fine line between Saturday night and Sunday Morning”. Riley has played a variety of venues since hitting the road that include locations from “Sea to Tennessee” as his line in “Bury Me in Dixie” says.

Outside of music, Riley always found time for athletics. Riley, a three sport athlete in high school and a walk-on quarterback at Jacksonville State University understands the importance that comes from playing sports and being part of a team. He continues to take great pride in both Alma Maters, and is always willing to help them when needed.

Riley’s Southern Roots show with his True Love of the Outdoors. Besides being onstage, Riley’s favorite place is being out in nature. Riley, enjoys all types of hunting and fishing but has a passion for duck & turkey hunting. One could say that Riley “Goes from One Wildlife to another”. He and his dog Sadie enjoy spending time at his primitive hunting cabins in Jacksonville, AL and Arkansas.
