Raised in the Golden Saw Music Hall
Riley Green's grandfather, Buford Green, regularly hosted a gathering of pickers and grinners on Friday nights outside of Jacksonville, Ala. In an old wood house known as the Golden Saw Music Hall, Green grew up listening to local bluegrass, country and gospel musicians, and he was invited to join from an early age. This experience is evident in his traditional country songwriting approach and the often-raucous jams of the three guitarists in his band. For all his old-fashioned roots, Green's early career was fueled by social media. Long before having a record deal or a publishing contract, he had millions of streams on social media and loyal fans singing his songs at every concert.
