Friday night will also feature Jacksonville, Alabama’s own accomplished musician, Riley Green, who will
open for Bret Michaels. Green has released three popular EP’s, starred in two TV shows (Winner of
CMT’s Redneck Island and his own hunting show on DirtRoadTV) boasts thousands of social media
fans/followers, and has played across the southeast to hordes of music lovers singing the words of his
Alabama anthem “Bury Me in Dixie” back to him. Performing to two sold out crowds at the highly
sought after Iron City Event Venue in Birmingham, to name just a few sold out performances this year,
and landing a spot in this past weekend’s lineup at mega fest “Rock the South” in Cullman, Green has
not only found his place in the music world, but is making a unique and original mark on it in the
Southern Region. Outside of music and the outdoors, Riley always found time for athletics as a former
three sport athlete in high school and a walk-on quarterback at Jacksonville State University. He is
considered “one of us” and will most definitely receive the warmest of welcomes in his home state as he
serenades the Main Street Music Festival Crowd with his own adaptations of what “Southern Living”
truly is, and what it means to call Alabama home.

His 2016 EP “Up In Smoke” debuted at #7 on the ITunes Country Chart and the video for his single “A
Woman’s Touch”, debuted at #1 on CMT’s 12 pack countdown above Blake Shelton’s “Every Time I Hear
That Song” and Miranda Lambert’s “We Should Be Friends”, staying in the top 5 for 7 weeks. Bryant, an
accomplished songwriter recently penned a tune called, “Out There”, with fellow country newcomer,
Luke Combs, who is taking country music radio by storm all across the Nation. This year marks the debut
of his first full length record (after four EP’s) due out in November. “I’m really proud and excited for my
fans about the new record” says Bryant. “We recorded a couple of my most requested songs from our
live show along with a number of new songs I can’t wait to share.” We hope to hear many of those new
songs right here at home in August before Jacob’s album is released in November and know he will be a
dynamic and exhilarating addition to Saturday night’s show.
