Riley Green Talks Southern Values & Being Criticized For Being Polite

During a recent interview with PEOPLE, Riley Green looked back at the beginnings of his music career and how he received criticism for being polite. 

“If you didn’t say ‘sir’ or ‘ma’am’, you risked getting a whipping when I was a kid,” Green stated. “That’s just how I was brought up. There have been places since signing my record deal where people tell me that it’s rude.”

Green proclaimed that he couldn’t go back on the politeness because that is how he was raised. “There are things about being from the South that I think people don’t understand if you’re not from there,” he further explained. He also said he wants to pain a “true light” on what it means to be from what he calls “Dixie” and the values from there. 

“People are proud that we can get along and that everybody does have that same level of respect for each other,” Green then said. “Even when everybody grew up in different places, in different ways.”

Riley Greens Talks About the Importance of Storytelling in Music 

Also during his interview with People, Riley Green discussed the importance of storytelling in music. “The storytelling part of it is what’s special about country music. When I sit down and write a song, I always am looking for something that’s going to tell a story and give somebody some type of emotion.”

Despite the past year and the health crisis, Riley does admit that things weren’t all that bad for him. “There was a lot of positives that came out of it for me. I had time at home and a great hunting season. I got to spend a lot of time with family.”

Green goes on to add that having a break was also a great time to not only enjoy songwriting but give him time to gather some new ideas “I wrote ‘Behind the Bar’ probably two years ago. But it had just fallen through the cracks. It can be cool to visit an abandoned song.”
