I love this one.
Riley Green is back to teasing more new music over on Instagram, as he shared a little acoustic video of a new one called “Raised Up Right” last night.
The subject matter is right in his wheelhouse, as he sings about his mom in Sunday morning church, his dad drinking beer, being baptized many years ago, and how all of that shaped the man he is today:
“Raised up right like my momma’s hands in Sunday morning church
Raised up right like my daddy’s can of beer right after work
Like the flag outside of the courthouse every morning at sunrise
I was raised up right
When they pulled me from that water on the day I got baptized
Yeah I was raised up right”
Riley also shared in the caption that he found himself reflecting some on his raising in Alabama while back home spending time with family over Easter weekend, which makes it feel all the more personal and meaningful when you hear the song:
“Gettin to spend a little time with the family over Easter Weekend had me thinkin about this song.
Here’s a little bit of one I wrote called ‘Raised Up Right’ hope y’all like it. #frontporchpickin #farmlife #weouthere #raisedupright #countrymusic #newtunes”
Check it out:
Riley released his debut studio album Different ‘Round Here way back in 2019, so I’d say we’re well overdue for a sophomore record or some sort of project any day now… and I’m hoping that all of the new music he’s been teasing lately means something might be coming soon.
He put out a few one-off singles last year, which included “Miles on Main,” “Wild Woman,” “I Hope She’s Drinkin’ Tonight,” and “Get Back Home,” in addition to his We Out Here: Live album.
Plus, he has so many more great unreleased songs fans have been begging to hear on a record for quite a while now, like “They Don’t Make Them Like That No More” and “Mississippi Or Me” just to name a few…
Riley did announce a few weeks ago that he has a collab coming with Luke Combs in May, as the two are teaming up for a reimagined version of his song ‘Different ‘Round Here,” which I can’t wait to hear.
He also just teamed up with Justin Moore for a song called “Everybody Get Along”:
