Riley Green recently announced he is releasing a new album, Ain’t My Last Rodeo, on October 13 on BMLG Records. The 12-track project is named after a song on the album, “My Last Rodeo,” which the singer wrote following one of the final conversations he had with his late Grandaddy Buford while in the hospital.
Riley attributes his Grandaddy Buford for his musical appreciation, education, and inspiration. He said in a statement, “I was fortunate enough to grow up within about three miles of my grandparents, so they were a huge part of my growing up and who I am—and this album is a lot of who I am. This is really the first time I was able to really take my time, write, and record songs that really felt like a cohesive album.”
He added, “I’m really proud of it and want to thank the fans for all of their encouragement—I hope y’all enjoy it.”
Green recently dropped a new song from the project called “They Don’t Make ‘Em Like That Anymore” that he co-wrote. The chorus of the new song includes the lyrics, “‘Cause they don’t make ’em like that no more / Some things you can’t find in the discount store / There’s just something ’bout bein’ handmade / And bought with cash on a firm handshake / Like old Zebcos and pocket knives / Shotguns, rifles, four-wheel drives / And this worn-out pair of boots that my daddy wore / Well, they don’t make ’em like that no more.”
Riley also has a song with Jelly Roll on the project and a cover of Tim McGraw’s “Damn Country Music.”
The new album includes his current single, “Different ‘Round Here,” which features Luke Combs.
Green posted to Instagram, “My new album “Ain’t My Last Rodeo” will be out October 13. The album preorder and a new song will be out this Friday. #newmusic #aintmylastrodeo #countrymusic #weouthere.”
