WATERTOWN — When fans of Riley Green attend his outdoor concert at 7 p.m. Friday at the Watertown Fairgrounds, they will likely hear a preview of his new album set for release next month.
The new album was heavily inspired by Green’s experiences, values, pastimes and love of family. It was named after a poignant track on the album, “My Last Rodeo,” which Green wrote following one of the final conversations he had with his late grandfather.
“We’ve been playing some of these new songs out on the road this summer and I’m excited to finally share them all with the fans,” Green said in a news release. “My grandaddies were huge inspirations on me, my songwriting, and what is most important to me. It means a lot to honor them by raising money for and supporting some great charities that they would have been proud to support.”
A day before his new album’s release, Green will host a concert at Walk of Fame Park in Nashville. The show, sponsored by Crown Royal, will benefit the artist’s new Buford Bonds Charitable Fund — Green’s philanthropic endeavor created in honor of his late grandfathers, Buford Green and Lendon Bonds.
Green’s 12-track album, “Ain’t My Last Rodeo,” will be released Friday, Oct. 13 and features numerous previously released songs including a cover of Tim McGraw’s “Damn Country Music” and the singer’s current top 25-and-climbing single with his former tourmate “Different ‘Round Here” (featuring Luke Combs).
