Lynch's latest album, "Tullahoma," was released in January 2020. That record came after the release in 2019 of the highly anticipated "Ridin' Roads" EP, which featured Top 30-and-charging single "Ridin' Roads." After making his UK performance debut last spring, Tennessee native Lynch spent summer 2019 on the road with Thomas Rhett's VERY HOT SUMMER TOUR.

He has earned industry recognition with Billboard Music Awards, iHeartRadio Music Awards and CMT Music Awards nominations, and has made high-profile appearances at the ACM Awards, CMA Awards, CMA Fest and on "Good Morning America," "Jimmy Kimmel Live!," "Late Night with Seth Meyers," "Lip Sync Battle," Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, "TODAY" and more.

Born in Jacksonville, Alabama, Riley Green was raised on the sounds of traditional Country, Bluegrass and Southern Gospel music. He learned the spirit of songwriting and performing at a young age while spending time with his grandfather, Bufford Green, who ran the Golden Saw Music Hall. Riley Green shared the stage with him and other men of his generation, laying a foundation for the songs he'd craft in the years to come, reflecting on the experiences of a young Southern man trying to find his place in the world.
Green's 2018 "In A Truck Right Now" EP (BMLG Records) introduced his mixture of outlaw rebellion and respect for tradition across his self-penned four tracks, including his debut No. 1 hit single "There Was This Girl." His follow-up single "In Love By Now" ascended Country radio from his newly released "Get That Man a Beer" EP (BMLG Records). Released last June, the EP served as a second collection of songs, co-written by Green and produced by Dann Huff, that gave fans a preview of his September 2019 debut album, "Different 'Round Here."
Rolling Stone Country, Taste of Country, Whiskey Riff, Sounds Like Nashville and iHeartRadio, among others, have named Green an "Artist to Watch," in addition to being selected as a CMT "Listen Up Artist" and one of MusicRow's 2019 "Next Big Things."
The past year has been a whirlwind of firsts for Green as he was selected to be a member of the Opry's NextStage Program, fulfilling his childhood dream of performing on the Grand Ole Opry, and made his national TV debut on NBC's "TODAY," all while headlining his OUTLAWS LIKE US TOUR, which included multiple sold-out stops. Green was on the road in 2019 with with Brad Paisley's 2019 WORLD TOUR, with Jon Pardi for his HEARTACHE MEDICATION Tour and on his own for his GET THAT MAN A BEER TOUR.
