It’s no secret that Riley Green is a fan of Jamey Johnson.
Riley’s known to cover Jamey’s iconic top 10 hit, “In Color”, pretty often out on the road.
And, back in 2014, he covered a different song of Jamey’s, “Can’t Cash My Checks”, at the Soul Kitchen in Mobile, Alabama where he was opening for Chris Cagle.
The song is from Jamey’s 2010 double-album The Guitar Song, and he wrote it with his late band-member Jason “Rowdy” Cope, Shannon Lawson and James Otto.
Riley told Billboard he’s always been a fan of Jamey:
After hearing Jamey might be working on a new album, only to find out it probably isn’t happening any time soon, I guess this is the next best thing.
I had to do a double-take when I first watched this video, wondering if the man singing was Riley or a member of Duck Dynasty.
Just look at that beard…
