Riley Green Releases 2 New Tracks, ‘Wild Woman’ and ‘Miles on Main’

by Blake Ells

Riley Green released two new tracks on Friday, “Miles on Main” and “Wild Woman.”

“Wild Woman” first showed up in live performances in 2020. Green penned the track with Brent Cobb and Erik Dylan. Cobb, whose cousin is producer Dave Cobb, earned quite a reputation of his own as a songwriter. He wrote “Tailgate Blues” for Luke Bryan, “Don’t It” for Kenny Chesney and “Old Sh*t” by Miranda Lambert among many others.

Check out “Wild Woman” below.

“Miles on Main” and the Golden Saw Music Hall

Green debuted “Miles on Main” in 2021 during his Golden Saw Music Hall Series. The web shows began in quarantine and saw Green performing songs from the Golden Saw Music Hall in his hometown of Jacksonville, Ala. The music hall was originally his great-grandparents’ home that his family later converted into a music venue. Green also collaborated with Dylan to write the track. Check out the track below.

Last month, Green released “Hell of a Way to Go.” So this is the third recent track without a home.

Green released the Behind the Bar EP in 2021, but the Alabama native hasn’t released a full-length since 2019. (A live performance from Huntsville, Ala., We Out Here: Live, was released earlier this year.) While he hasn’t announced a new album, perhaps this is the beginning of a long-awaited sophomore studio effort.

Riley Green at CMA Fest

Earlier this week, Green participated in the Rock ‘N Jock celebrity softball game at Nashville’s First Horizon Park which is home to the Nashville Sounds.

They faced off against Team Budweiser, which was led by HARDY, Ernest, Mitchell Tenpenny and Chris Lane.
