Lane burst onto the scene with his breakout No. 1 smash “Fix,” and the star continues to rise with Gold and Platinum level single certifications, two Top 10 albums and 850 million+ combined streams. Out of the gate, his irresistible new single “I Don’t Know About You” is climbing the country radio charts and follows the success of his hit collaboration “Take Back Home Girl” with Tori Kelly. Both songs are on Lane's album Laps Around the Sun, which made a chart-topping debut landing at No. 1 on the iTunes Top Country Albums chart and inside the Top 10 of Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart for the second time in his career.

Gaining recognition, Lane was named one of MusicRow Magazine’s 2017 Next Big Thing Artists, has scored nominations at the iHeartRadio Music Awards, ACM Awards and Radio Disney Music Awards and appeared on “TODAY,” “The Bachelor,” “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” “Late Night With Seth Meyers” and “CONAN.” Previously landing coveted opening slots on tours with Florida Georgia Line, Dustin Lynch, Garth Brooks, Tim McGraw + Faith Hill and Rascal Flatts, the Kernersville, N.C.-native closed out his second headline run in the Laps Around the Sun Tour in January.

Green was born in Jacksonville, Ala. and raised on the sounds of old 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 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, reflecting 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’s original music has already tallied over 71 million streams to date. Recently wrapping his headlining Outlaws Like Us Tour, he has built fierce support traveling the southeast for the last six years growing his fan-base on social media.

His current single “There Was This Girl” is Top 15 and rising on country radio and he recently made his national TV debut on NBC’s “Today” and fulfilled a childhood dream making his debut on the Grand Ole Opry stage last December. Additionally, he was selected as a member of the Opry’s NextStage Program and has been named for both CMT’s Listen Up Artists as well as MusicRow’s 2019 Next Big Things. Named one of Rolling Stone Country’s “Artists You Need to Know,” his In A Truck Right Now EP on BMLG Records was produced by Dann Huff and features four songs he co-wrote: “There Was This Girl,” “Same Old Song,” “Break Up More Often” and “In A Truck Right Now.” For more tour dates and more information on Riley Green visit rileygreenmusic.com.
