Riley Green Takes ‘There Was This Girl’ to No.1 at Country Radio

‘There Was This Girl’ that Riley Green decided to write a song about and that song earned him his first No.1 single. Landing in the top spot on the Mediabase Airplay chart this week marks a momentous occasion in Green’s burgeoning career.

“I just want to thank everyone for the last year of my life,” says Green in a press release. “To go from framing houses back home to having the NUMBER ONE song in Country Music is pretty amazing. Huge shoutout to Country radio for playing my song, BMLG for believing in a kid from Alabama and Erik Dylan for writing this song with me. And I can’t thank my fans enough for supporting me from day one – hope to see you all on the road soon!”

Keeping with the momentum of “There Was This Girl,” the Alabama native has announced his follow-up single, “In Love By Now.” A crowd favorite during his live shows, the song is already making spins on country radio.

Green will take his No.1 debut single out on the road as he joins Brad Paisley’s 2019 World Tour in May. The trek begins on May 30 in Albuquerque, NM and covers cities across the United States.
