Riley Green recently celebrated the RIAA Gold certification for his latest single “I Wish Grandpas Never Died,” which is currently approaching Top 10 at country radio. He marked the milestone alongside Big Machine Label Group President/CEO Scott Borchetta and BMLG Records President/CEO Jimmy Harnen as they commemorated the special achievement with a plaque.

Along with his first ACM Nomination, Riley also recently received an iHeartRadio Music Award nomination for Best New Country Artist, was recently named as part of the CRS 2020 New Faces Class, and received MusicRow’s Breakout Artist of the Year at the CountryBreakout Awards. “I Wish Grandpas Never Died” follows his Gold-certified No. 1 “There Was This Girl,” both of which appear on his debut album Different ‘Round Here. Green is spending the summer touring across the country with Jason Aldean on his We Back tour.
