On September 5, Riley Green will launch his much-anticipated Get That Man A Beer Tour with his good buddy Travis Denning. The tour will bring the guitar slingers to a number of cities around the Southeast as well as Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Philadelphia.
The opportunity to tour with Green is something Denning has been “fired up” about for quite some time.
“It’s going to be killer,” the Georgia native assures Country Now.
Not only is Denning looking forward to getting back on the road, he’s also excited for the chance to share the stage with one of his longtime friends.
“Riley and I have been buddies since a drunken night in Madison, Wisconsin,” the “After A Few” singer recalls with a laugh. “He’s a great friend. I love that guy and I’m a huge fan of what he does. He gets on stage and just does him. There’s no smoke and mirrors. There’s no bullshit. I feel like we both do that in our own kind of unique ways.”
Denning says the tour was put together after two conversations he and Green previously shared. After agreeing they “should play some shows together,” the pair solidified their plans earlier this year when they were both scheduled to play one of country music’s most hallowed stages.
“One night at the Opry we were sitting there and we finally said, ‘Hey, let’s do this.’ I was like, ‘what are you doing this fall?’ He said, ‘Well, I’ve got some dates coming.’ I’m like, ‘Alright, I’m in if you want to.’”
Tickets for the Get That Man A Beer Tour are on sale now.
