Riley Green brings old country to DC

GREENVILLE — Riley Green brought his country roots to Darke County.

The number one Nashville Recording Artist, Green with special guest Laine Hardy, took the stage on Sunday, Aug. 21 to bring the love of country music to those in attendance at The Great Darke County Fair.

Green is an American country music singer and songwriter who saw his first success with the single “There Was This Girl” in 2018. He released the album Different ‘Round Here, in Sept. 2019, and has been on the rise ever since.

The Alabama born native likes to stay close to his roots and write songs that embody who he is and the life he lives. Like any true country man, Green loves a good truck. He told fans his song “If It Wasn’t for Trucks” was inspired by his anger towards there not being a good country song about trucks, so he decided to write one himself.

The lyrics embody the idea of an American Dream where you work hard, save your money, and earn what you have. In return, you have a place of comfort and a lifetime of memories. The lyrics are relatable to all audiences due to the nature of why the truck is important from “talking to God all by yourself, crying when your granddaddy died, or hauling the deer, drinking a beer, and falling in and out of love.” Green’s lyrics say he wouldn’t have a place to do all of that, “if it wasn’t for trucks.”
