Riley Green Reflects On His Growing Music Career 

During a January 2022 interview with Connect Savannah, Riley Green reflected on his music career in recent years.

“I think it’s really hard for a new artist to go from ‘Hey, I know this song, but I don’t know who sings it’ into ‘Oh, that’s a Riley Green song,’” The country artist stated. “I think that probably comes from maybe too much bouncing (around stylistically) with your first few singles.”

Green also spoke about how lucky he is to be working in the industry now. “Ten years ago, your average Joe couldn’t go into the studio and record something and put it out on Spotify or Amazon or iTunes. Now that you have so much music, this overflow of music, you’ve got to find a way to stand out, and I think that’s kind of by having your own sound.”

When speaking about his songs, Riley Green admitted that he doesn’t know exactly what makes him stand out from other country music artists. “I have no idea what it is about what I’m doing that’s working, but I just want to make sure I don’t mess it up.”

Meanwhile, Green discussed his early music works and how his fans respond to something in his music. “I mean, a great example is I’ve got this song called ‘Georgia Time’ that I wrote when I was 22 or 23, I guess. I recorded it and put it out myself. It’s a demo at the very best. I recorded it at like Bob’s garage or something and spent a few hundred bucks on it. But that song has got 30 something million streams, and it’s just like at every show they scream for it at the top of their lungs. And I don’t know what it is about the songs I’ve written.”
