Riley Green Delivers Acoustic Cover Of Sammy Kershaw’s ’90s Country Heartbreaker, “Yard Sale”

Riley Green country music

’90s country or bust…

And there aren’t many artists who cover the ’90s country classics we all know and love as well as Riley Green does it.

From Joe Diffie’s “John Deere Green” to Deana Carter’s “Strawberry Wine”, he simply doesn’t miss when it comes to this glorious era of country music.

And today, Riley’s blessing us with an acoustic rendition of Sammy Kershaw’s ’90s heartbreaker, “Yard Sale”.

Written by Larry Bastian and Dewayne Blackwell, Sammy included it as the third single from his 1991 debut album Don’t Go Near the Water. The song only peaked at #17 on the Billboard U.S. Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart in 1992.

I mean, what’s more brilliant than the metaphor of a yard sale to represent the end of a relationship and how all his ex’s old stuff has to go, as he watches people sort through the last of what they had, both literally and figuratively?

I’m getting emotional just thinking about it… do yourself a favor and check out Riley’s version.

“In the spirit of Kershaw……here is one of my favorites.”

Sammy is opening a show for Riley in Southaven, Mississippi on Friday, so it was only fitting that he paid tribute to the legend with a kickass cover of his song.

If we don’t get a live rendition or duet of “Queen of My Double Wide Trailer” from the concert this weekend, I just give up…

“This is how I feel about @sammykershaw opening the show for me this weekend.”

And of course, the original:
