Big Machine signs new artist

Thursday, February 22, 2018 – Big Machine Label Group signed Alabama artist Riley Greene to its label, it was announced Thursday.

"As the industry shifts and musical tastes change, we will continue to stay on the cutting edge of how artists connect and break through" said label head Scott Borchetta. "Understanding all media and opening new doors is essential. Riley has great natural instincts on how to connect in our multimedia world and is perfectly suited to take full advantage of BMLG's entire platform."

"I signed with BMLG Records because they truly love my music," said Greene. "They are very passionate about what they do and understand what I'm trying to do. I felt like I was a part of their team as soon as I met (label Executive Vice President) Jimmy Harnen. His love for music and the artist is obvious. I'm confident they will be able to get my message out to country music fans everywhere."

Greene has toured in the southeast over the past five years. Greene also has started in his own hunting show on DirtRoadTV.
