With New Record Contract & Top 5 Debut Single, Riley Green Say His “Past Year Has Been a Blur”

After signing his record deal with Big Machine Label Group in February 2018, Alabama native Riley Green dropped his major-label debut EP, In a Truck Right Now, in June.

Every track on the four-song EP, which Dan Huff produced, was co-penned by Riley, including lead single, “There Was This Girl.” After 37 weeks on the charts, the tune is currently No. 4 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart.

As Riley told Kix Brooks of American Country Countdown, people across the country are “relating” to his lead single. That makes the Southern boy feel right at home when he’s touring, which he will be doing plenty of this spring and summer as part of Brad Paisley’s World Tour.

“It’s sort of hard to comprehend,” says Riley to Kix. “I signed my record deal, you know, right around a year ago, and this past year has been a blur. But I feel like I’ve been spoiled. I mean, the song—it’s just been so successful, you know? People really seem to be  enjoying the song and relating to it all over the place. The more I go across the country and get out of the Southeast that I played in for so long, the more I see that people kind of grew up the same way I did. They’re relating to these songs just like everybody in Alabama is.”
