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.

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.
