NASHVILLE, TN (August 31, 2020) – ACM Awards New Male Artist of the Year RILEY GREEN takes fans on a virtual journey to his hometown in Jacksonville, AL with the premiere of “The Golden Saw Series”, supported through a partnership with Busch. Proceeds from the series will benefit musicians out of work due to the global pandemic through Green’s #GetThatBandABeer and ACM Lifting Lives COVID-19 Response Fund disbursed to individuals in the Country Music community who are currently on the waitlist for pandemic relief assistance. The four-part series will air bi-weekly on YouTube beginning Thursday (9/3) with each episode featuring different guests performing alongside Green as well as surprise duets between artists.
“The Golden Saw is a special place to me,” explains Green. “I learned how to sing and play guitar in that old house. I wanted to share the way those rough cut pine walls made me feel as a kid so I decided to do a concert series. I have some amazing singers and songwriters joining me and I can’t wait for y’all to see it.”
When Green was a teenager, his great-grandparents’ former home was turned into The Golden Saw Music Hall as a performance venue – named after the family’s nearby sawmill – for local musicians to play their favorite classic Country hits on Saturday nights. That sacred ground provided the inspiration for Riley to learn the craft of songwriting to the sound of an acoustic guitar.
Guests for the four-part series include singer-songwriters Drake White and Brent Cobb, and songwriters Jessi Alexander (“The Climb”, “I Drive Your Truck”), Randy Montana (“Beer Never Broke My Heart”, “I Hope You’re Happy Now”), Erik Dylan (“There Was This Girl”, “Outlaws Like Us”), Adam Hood (“Good Ol’ Days”), Dave Kennedy and Channing Wilson (“She Got The Best of Me”).
Green began releasing self-penned songs independently in 2013 before signing to BMLG Records in 2018. Since then he has continued co-writing each of his releases, including GOLD-certified No. 1 “There Was This Girl”, “In Love By Now” and all five songs on his upcoming EP “IF IT WASN’T FOR TRUCKS” due September 11 via BMLG Records. Riley posthumously added his Grandfathers Lendon Bonds and Buford Green as co-writers on his GOLD-certified self-penned, “I Wish Grandpas Never Died.” To learn more about Riley Green visit RileyGreenMusic.com and to learn more about ACM Lifting Lives COVID-19 Response Fund, visit ACMLiftingLives.org.
