  1. Hey Riley, i doubt you remember me, but im Stacy reeders son. Love your songs man.

    You and my dad were at the fish camp when i met you i shook your hand and looked at you for a moment and was like " holy crap, i just shook the mans hand".

  2. THIS SONG MADE ME CRY😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭πŸ˜₯πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜…πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­

  3. YESSS!! As Riley should be … live…acoustic .. as is .. just him being him! The β€œhell yeah” version of this should be the official video , honestly lol … it’s hands down my favorite performance of it .
    Man he’s so good
    πŸ¦†πŸ’ͺπŸΌπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ¦…β€οΈ

  4. October 20th my my grandad passed he was everything from hunting, fishing to loving and huggin to jokin and laughing! I don’t think I’ll ever become anything like him.

  5. This is good. But. The first acoustic version you did that is on YT… grabs my heart & pisses me off at the same time πŸ’™πŸ˜’ that’s how good it is

  6. I found this guy here about a year ago… Bury Me in Dixie was my Riley's Green first. He's been struggling in the country world for a while… so I bet this felt amazing to him!!! Wtg! You made it!

  7. I lived in Alabama for 17 years before moving to Florida. Definitely got homesick when I heard this song! I looked up the song Moma Tried and couldn’t find it on here.

  8. I think this guy has a great voice but the song really is sorta silly you know… I mean the words… i wish cars had truck beds? Come on Nashville! We can do better! Give this guy a song that will show case his gift, his voice!

  9. He keeps it as close to real country as it gets. Why hasn't he blown up yet like some of these other pop country artist.

  10. Bud Light is not American, it's owned by In-Bev. Please do not use Budweiser or Bud Light in any song lyrics. Just call it an Ice Cold Beer. In-Bev is a Belgium company that stole Budweiser in a hostile take over in 2008. They spun off the Busch Gardens and Sea World Parks to Blackstone like trash. Do not drink any In-Bev beers, drink your local craft beers instead from your local brewery. The problem is, In-Bev was buying up all the major craft breweries, so you have to check the beer you are buying to see if it's owned by In-Bev. When I hear Bud Light in the chorus of this song, I cringe. Please go back and re-record the chorus, punch in, and change the lyric to Ice Cold Beer.

  11. I know you probably don’t read these comments Riley, but I love your music. I did 11 years in the Marine Corps and now live in Virginia. Still in the National Guard. I’m from Jacksonville. I miss my dad and home. This video and Bury me in Dixie give me chills and remind me of what I love and keep me humble. Thank you brother for my escape to back home.it keeps me going.

  12. Lost my grandfather my jr year of high school …. Got the call he was in bad shape two days before first football game of season and put him to rest that next Friday night

  13. I lost my grandpa and in bad terms. I was performing Mexican music in Mexico and last time I saw him I refused to hug him. I lost him and this song destroys me every time I listen to it. Sometimes we let things get to our heads and we forget that family is always first

  14. Not sure if this video makes me want to crush beers and sing along at a concert or pick up a guitar and teach myself to make music like this

  15. 157k views, One hundred and Fifty Seven are mine and I might even be underestimating my guess! Badass song brother, Keep Grinding, see you down the road πŸ’ͺπŸ»πŸ‘ŠπŸ»πŸ™πŸ»

  16. I have a lake house that’s been in our family since the 40s and it’s on brickyard road in Phenix City, AL! I love going down there all the time! RG thank you for putting Phenix City on the spotlight! We are all wild eyed southern boys!

  17. And let’s not forget to say people got offended by the line β€œI wish country music still got played on country radio”! I love itπŸ˜‚

  18. Riley inlove this song it makes me cry and remember my grandpa i wish they never dided .bit love this song and all your music good work.

  19. What he doesn’t say in this video was his grandmas were in the front and this was the first time playing this song live for them… so moving!

  20. I wish girls you love never gave back diamond rings
    I wish every porch had a swing
    Wish kids still learn to say "sir" and "ma'am", how to shake a hand
    I wish every state had a Birmingham

    I wish everybody knew all the words to Mama Tried
    I wish Monday mornings felt just like Friday nights

    And I wish even cars had truck beds
    And every road was named Copperhead
    And coolers never ran out of cold Bud Light
    And I wish high school home teams never lost
    And back road drinking kids never got caught
    I wish the price of gas was low and cotton was high
    I wish honkytonks didn't have no closing time
    And I wish grandpas never died

    I wish Sundays on a creek bank would never end
    Wish I could learn to drive again
    I wish the first time, seventeen, she was my everything
    Kiss in a Chevrolet, could happen every day

    I wish everybody overseas was gonna make it home
    I wish Country music still got played on Country radio

    And I wish even cars had truck beds
    And every road was named Copperhead
    And coolers never run out of cold Bud Light
    And I wish high school home teams never lost
    And back road drinking kids never got caught
    I wish the price of gas was low and cotton was high
    I wish honkytonks didn't have no closing time
    And I wish grandpas never died
    Never died

    And I wish good dogs never got grey and old
    I wish farms never got sold

    And I wish even cars had truck beds
    And every road was named Copperhead
    And coolers never run out of cold Bud Light
    I wish high school home teams never lost
    And back road drinking kids never got caught
    I wish the price of gas was low and cotton was high
    I wish honkytonks didn't have no closing time
    And I wish grandpas never died
    I wish grandpas never died

  21. Imagine writing a lick like this…..it takes FOREVER 2 hit the radio wave, takes FOREVER to make a few bucks off it, takes FOREVER to play your final verse…..on acoustic, and have 40,000 people scream YOUR lyrics at YOU while u just strum it for them……..

  22. HI Riley, Ellen Tibbetts Hurst suggested I reach out to you as I just spoke at here conference last week. Ellen told me a little about your tie to dementia with your Grandfather and said how proud your community is of you and I can see why. I host a radio show called Alzheimer's Speaks Radio and have been interviewing people all around the world since 2011, as people share their stories, music, movies, research… I would love to have you on the show! Please contact me through www.AlzheimersSpeaks.com Looking forward to chatting. Let's for sure talk about a world wide movement called the World Rocks Against Dementia or WRAD. I love your music. Keep up the great work. Lori La Bey
