Riley Green’s “There Was a Girl” Reaches No. 1 on Mediabase Chart

Even More Music News - Mon, 04/15/2019 - 10:54

After 40 weeks at country radio, Riley Green’s debut single, “There Was a Girl,” has reached No. 1 on the Mediabase chart.

Co-penned by Riley and Erik Dylan, “There Was a Girl” is featured on Riley’s major-label debut EP, In a Truck Right Now, which was released in June 2018 by Big Machine. Every track on the four-song EP, which Dan Huff produced, was co-penned by Riley.

“I just want to thank everyone for the last year of my life,” says Riley. “To go from framing houses back home to having the number one song in country music is pretty amazing. Huge shoutout to country radio for playing my song, BMLG for believing in a kid from Alabama and Erik Dylan for writing this song with me. And I can’t thank my fans enough for supporting me from day one—hope to see you all on the road soon.”

Hal Ketchum Suffering From Alzheimer’s Disease

Even More Music News - Mon, 04/15/2019 - 08:49

Hal Ketchum is suffering from Alzheimer’s disease/dementia, according to a post made by his wife Andrea on Hal’s official Facebook page.

Hal, 66, had a string of hits in the 1990s, including “Small Town Saturday Night,” “Sure Love,” “Hearts Are Gonna Roll” and more.

Andrea shared the news via Facebook to quell speculation related to Hal’s lack of future tour dates.

“Unfortunately, Hal is suffering from Alzheimer’s/ Dementia,” said Andrea, in part. “He has been battling this for some time now, but because of his love for his fans, he continued performing as long as it was possible. Dementia is an exhausting and confusing illness and now it’s time for Hal to stay home with loved ones. Hal is otherwise healthy and happy, enjoying time with his family and friends.”
