The best songs often come from the heart and specifically from the hearts of the greatest songwriters in the land. For our money, the songwriters on Riley Green’s newest unreleased track are some of the finest in the land. Erik Dylan (Co-writer of “Outlaws Like Us”, “There Was This Girl”, and a host of hits by other artists), Brent Cobb (Grammy nominated artist and co-writer to Luke Combs timely hit “Six Feet Apart”) and Riley Green himself just penned another song we think is going to be a hit.
Riley’s distinctive voice on a track like “Wild Woman” is the perfect complement to the emotion in the song. It’s earnest and a little rough around the edges, but what could be better for an ode to a woman who has those same qualities? Even from just hearing the opening verse (“you were born a heartbreaker/the let ’em down easy kind/you don’t know how to fake it/more whiskey than wine”) it’s evident that this song is going to be a smash.
If you know the writers’ work you can hear a little bit of each in this track, and the interweaving of all their styles is what makes this song and Country music in general so great. The video below shows Riley playing it for the first time at his grandpa’s place in his hometown in Alabama – The Golden Saw. It’s a truly special place for a truly special song – give this one a listen or 100.
