Megan Moroney might break the internet with the FBI hunt that she sent fans on after the soft launch of her new beau. After attending the SESAC Music Awards in Nashville on Sunday night, Moroney posted a picture of a man kissing her on the side of her head.
While it not only broke the hearts of men everywhere who had FAT crushes on the self-proclaimed emo cowgirl, it also led fans (shamelessly like myself) to pull out their best FBI skills on a hunt to find who this man is. From the side profile and the slicked-back hair on the image, first instinct led fans to believe it might be Riley Green.
While I made some severe comparisons of side profiles to see if this were true, after a closer look, it’s apparent that the “mystery man” is not Mr. Riley Green.
Which is GREAT news for the single ladies out there. Riley Green is still a bachelor; although he does not consider himself an “eligible bachelor,” single he still is.
To clear up the suspicion that he could be Moroney’s “mystery man,” Green posted an Instagram story to the song “It Ain’t Me, Babe” by Johnny Cash while sitting in a deer stand – proving that he’s out in the woods and not at the awards with Megan Moroney.
“But it ain’t me, babe No, no, no, it ain’t me babe It ain’t me you’re lookin’ for, babe.”
Side note: writing this article made me feel like I’m hosting an episode of Maury, but instead of a paternity test, it’s a dating test… Riley Green…(long dramatic pause) You are NOT THE SUITOR. Also, it’s good to know that Riley isn’t in hot water after he was flashedwhile singing “I Wish Grandpas Never Died.”
While it was all in good fun, Megan Moroney’s mystery man stays hidden (that is, if you haven’t dived into the Reddit groups). While some have their suspicions about who this man is, Moroney will keep him a secret a little longer.
With the CMA Awards a day away, Mornoney said she is taking her dad as her date. While I am sure fans were hoping for the soft launching to lead up to a red-carpet debut, this news can keep fans wishing for a full reveal at a later date.
