Riley Green is bringing his new single, “If It Wasn’t For Trucks,” to life with a reflective new music video

Directed by Jim Wright, the clip finds the rising star looking back on pivotal moments in his life, from his first truck, to his first love. The sentimental music video follows the song’s storyline and even features Green as the main character.

“’If It Wasn’t For Trucks’ was written with a lot of life moments in mind,” ACM New Male Artist of the Year shares. “Young love. Getting away from the world. We did a flashback from current time to when I was younger, so I think fans will get a look at how reflective this song and video are for me.”
