Riley Green
Riley Green
A Southern Gentleman with a love and passion for making people feel at home while entertained is what motivates Riley Green to write songs and perform every time he gets an opportunity.

Born in Jacksonville, Alabama on October 18th, 1988, Riley is the youngest of three children and has always been the entertainer of the family. Riley started playing guitar at age 10 and started writing music at age 14. He wrote his first song in 2007. “Escalade”, “Dream Girl” and “Sandy Beaches”, like many of his early songs, these were inspired by a young man’s quest to get girls.

One of Riley’s most inspiring songs, “God was in Bama This Year”, was written about his experiences and observations following the April 27th, 2011 tornadoes that devastated Alabama. Many people identified with the lyrics and requested that Riley perform it at home dedications and memorial services during the following Years. The opportunity to help his “neighbors” in their time of need is an honor that Riley took and takes Great Pride in.

Riley spent many days and nights playing guitar and singing with his grandfather, Bufford Green. Mr. Green opened a music hall in 2003, where the music goes from “The Bar Room to The Pulpit and back” each Friday Night. Granddaddy-Buford taught Riley a love for the sound of Old Traditional Country, Bluegrass and Southern Gospel Music. Riley performed at the Golden Saw Music Hall, singing songs like “Wreck on the
Highway” & “Precious Jewel” - by Roy Acuff, with his grandfather and other men of his generation. “My Best Friend” was written as a tribute to his Granddaddy-Buford and the influence he had on Riley’s life & music. Riley wrote “Line in the Water”, about fishing with his other grandfather, Granddaddy-Lendon, who also influenced him with his ability to
Truly Relax and Enjoy the “Southern Lifestyle”.

Many of Riley’s next generation of songs reflect on the experiences of a young southern man trying to find his place in the world. With a mixture of outlaw-rebellion and respect for tradition, Riley combined these values to create his own style. “A Little Hank” and “Almost” reflect the battle of values in the “Southern Society” and what his Grandfather referred to as “The fine line between Saturday night and Sunday Morning”. Riley has played a variety of venues since hitting the road that include locations from “Sea to Tennessee” as his line in “Bury Me in Dixie” says.

Outside of music, Riley always found time for athletics. Riley, a three sport athlete in high school and a walk-on quarterback at Jacksonville State University understands the importance that comes from playing sports and being part of a team. He continues to take great pride in both Alma Maters, and is always willing to help them when needed.

Riley’s Southern Roots show with his True Love of the Outdoors. Besides being onstage, Riley’s favorite place is being out in nature. Riley, enjoys all types of hunting and fishing but has a passion for duck & turkey hunting. One could say that Riley “Goes from One Wildlife to another”. He and his dog Sadie enjoy spending time at his primitive hunting cabins in Jacksonville, AL and Arkansas.

"God could you throw this dog a bone. Let me turn the corner and be home. I'm tired of being on this road alone." Real lyrics are what Channing Wilson is all about.

From a small town in Northwest Georgia, Channing learned about real life American good times and hardships. He's not afraid to tell you about it either. From his songs like "Poor Man's Cocaine" referring to methamphetamines taking over rural America, to songs like "Crazy Over You" which is a throwback love song to the era of Waylon Jennings and Merle Haggard, Channing's voice along with his lyrics stand alone in a time of mass produced "throwaway" singers and songwriters.

Brought up on the real side of the tracks by two hard working "dirt collar" parents, he had plenty of opportunities to learn real life at an early age. Channing says "I didn't have a musical family. My mother is a pretty good singer, but an even better worker. So, I found music later than most artists." Finding music later for Channing didn't slow down his passion for it. Learning guitar at 17 and starting writing shortly after. "I came across a book of short poems my mother had written before I was born, and after reading them I was so inspired to explore my own creative side."

By age 25, he had flunked out of college and quit more jobs than he applied for. "I never could accept the idea that I was supposed to work every day for someone else. I expected more than a paycheck. After a friend turned me on to Guy Clark and Steve Earle, I knew 2 things. I never wanted to punch a clock again, and I had to become a better writer and musician." That's exactly what he did at 26 years old, he started his first band and quickly learned the ropes as a very successful regional act. That venture lasted 6 years until he became a father and knew he had to step up his game if he was going to turn a dream into a way of life.

Selling a fishing boat and a decent guitar collection to finance trips from north Georgia to Nashville every week paid off in October of 2010 he was approached by EMI Music Publishing after playing a Tuesday night showcase called Alabama Line. After meeting with EMI a few times he was offered his first publishing deal. "I didn't know what I had to offer such a big corporate publishing company, but when I looked on the roster and saw Guy Clark I knew I was in." It didn't take long before he was in the room with his teacher. Learning from the master himself. "Just knowing Guy has made me a better man, but getting to share ideas and stories is a dream come true."

Channing got his first cut with a song titled "Living With The Blues." Sony recording artist Tyler Farr cut the song the same way he heard the demo. Acoustic and raw. Channing even played the guitar track on Tyler's upcoming album. He has been writing with some of Nashville's best writers such as Guy Clark, Ashley Monroe, Drake White, Dave Kennedy and more. All the while pursuing artist acknowledgment. When asked if he wanted to be an artist he replied "If you can't tell I'm an artist by listening to my songs, you're not listening."

He has shared bills with so many of his heroes such as Billy Joe Shaver, Steve Earle, Robert Earl Keen, Tony Joe White, Chris Knight, Dale Watson, and many more including getting invited to be on the 2012 Country Throwdown Tour.

Channing's love for country music history and the future of country music is second to none. "I came to Nashville to make a difference and I'll always work hard to earn respect from my peers. I owe them that at least. Hell, I've played their songs so many times for free."
