The full lineup for the Lynchburg Music Fest wasn’t revealed as expected Sept. 1, but two artists have been added in the past week.
Riley Green and Danielle Bradbery joined the roster of acts for the event Oct. 2-5 at Music Hollow in Moore County.
They join previously announced headliners Josh Turner, Justin Moore and Kip Moore – the Friday through Sunday closing acts – for the second annual event.
A native of Jacksonville, Alabama, Green grew up equally interested in sports and music. The latter he learned from his grandfather, Bufford Green, who ran a music joint while Riley was growing up. After attending Jacksonville State University, where he played quarterback for the Gamecocks football team, Green began pursuing a career in showbiz.
In 2013, he released a self-titled EP. The following year, he signed up for the fourth season of “Redneck Island,” CMT’s country spin on Survivor. The show raised Green‘s profile, bringing him to a wider audience.
He took advantage of these new listeners by releasing the “Bury Me in Dixie” EP in 2015 and the County Line EP in 2016. The next year brought “Outlaws Like Us.” In June 2018, Green issued the “In a Truck Right Now” EP, which included the title track and the hit single “There Was This Girl.” Another EP, “Get That Man a Beer,” appeared in June 2019, followed by his debut album, “Different ‘Round Here,” that September.
On Friday, he is scheduled to drop another EP, “If It Wasn’t For Trucks.” A top pick off that EP is “If I Didn’t Wear Boots.”
Bradbery won Season Four of “The Voice” in 2013. A Blake Shelton protégé, she signed with Big Machine Records the day after winning “The Voice.”
A single, “Never Have I Ever,” was released in June of this year, but there is no information on an upcoming album. It was a part of the “Stairwell Sessions,” songs performed a capella in – you guessed – a stairwell.
Bradbery is scheduled to perform on Saturday. On her Facebook page last week she posted, “Can’t wait to see y’all on October 3rd at the Lynchburg Music Fest!”
