Riley Green Preaches the Importance of Family With ‘I Wish Grandpas Never Died’ Performance at the 2020 ACM Awards

ACM new male artist winner, Riley Green, delivered a stirring performance of his single “I Wish Grandpas Never Died” Wednesday night (Sept. 16) at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium. 

The touching record is a reflective one, speaking on how good things ultimately come and go. “I wish honky-tonks didn’t have no closing time, And I wish grandpas never died,” he sing on the song’s chorus. “Winning ACM’s new male artist of the year was something that I honestly never dreamed of,” he told Billboard last week in advance of the show. “Just being nominated was an accomplishment to me.” 

Green recently released his new EP If It Wasn’t For Trucks on Friday (Sept. 11), which houses powerful tunes such as “Better Than Me” and “Behind the Times.”

“Growing up where I did and having family as close as I did definitely helped shape me not only as a person but as a songwriter,” he explained. “I think you hear that in a lot of my music.”

The ACM Awards are produced by dick clark productions, which is owned by MRC Media, the parent company of Billboard.
