Riley Green is on cloud nine right now after notching his first career #1 single with “There Was This Girl.” He took to Instagram today to thank the fans with a throwback pic from his days in construction, coupled with a shot from his first time performing at the Grand Ole Opry.
“Just want to take a minute and thank everyone for the last year of my life. To go from framing houses back home to having the NUMBER 1 song in Country music is pretty amazing… and I have all of you to thank for it. Huge shout out to country radio for playing my song “there was this girl” thanks to @bigmachinelabelgroup for believing in a kid from Alabama, @erikdylanmusic for writing this song with me and thank you to all my fans that have supported me from day one! No way I can pay everybody back but I hope to see you all out on the road very soon so we can celebrate!!”
As co-writer Erik Dylan put it, “some things work out the way they are supposed to.”
