Riley Green and Travis Denning
Riley Green: 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 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. His 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.” The accompanying music video has amassed nearly 10 million views since its release, watch here. His follow-up single “In Love By Now” is currently ascending at Country radio. Rolling Stone Country, Taste of Country, Whiskey Riff, Sounds Like Nashville and iHeartRadio among others have all named Riley 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 Riley 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. In addition to his headlining dates, Riley joins Brad Paisley’s 2019 WORLD TOUR which will kick off this month. For a full list of tour dates and more information, visit RileyGreenMusic.com.
Travis Denning: A native of Warner Robins, Georgia, singer/songwriter Travis Denning just released his new single “After A Few,” which he co-wrote and follows his Top 40 debut single “David Ashley Parker From Powder Springs”. Denning, who has been spotlighted by Rolling Stone for his “everyman worldview that evokes his small-town, big-hearted upbringing and a sound that is a wide tent – fun, modern country with rock-guitar licks”, was recently selected as an Opry NextStage recipient and CMA KixStart Artist, as he makes his mark within the industry. Inspired at a young age, Denning developed a love for country, pop, rock and heavy metal and started playing local bars from the age of 16, as he built a strong following from his distinctive songs and raucous guitar solos. Denning moved to Nashville and secured outside cuts by Jason Aldean, Justin Moore, Michael Ray and Chase Rice. A prolific writer with an unquestionable stage presence, Denning caught the attention of Universal Music Group and signed a record deal in 2017. Denning has previously opened shows for Cole Swindell, Alan Jackson, LANCO and is set to play some of the country’s biggest festivals including CMA Fest, Faster Horses Festival, Watershed Festival, Country Thunder and more this summer. When Denning is not touring, he is in the studio working on his debut album. For more information, visit travisdenning.com.
