Franchi Announces Academy of Country Music Artist Riley Green as Brand Ambassador
POKOMOKE, Md. (December 13, 2021) – Franchi has announced 2020 Academy of Country Music® (ACM®) Awards New Male Artist of the Year and avid hunter, Riley “Duckman” Green, has joined Franchi’s ambassador network.
Green will represent Franchi and shoot exclusively Franchi rifles and shotguns, while he balances his vigorous touring and recording schedule with his hunting exploits. Riley is an avid outdoorsman and hunter when he is not on stage and making music for his fans he longs to be in the field. He has managed to collect trophy bucks and longbeards from all over nation but his passion is waterfowl hunting which is indicative by his social media handle “@Rileyduckman”. Additionally, Green has been the featured guest on numerous hunting programs, podcasts and television shows.
“We are excited to announce this partnership with Riley and have him join our ambassador network,” said Bret Maffett, Product Manager for Franchi USA. “Riley is passionate about music and shooting and is a great advocate for hunting. His fans are too, which makes him a perfect fit for the Franchi brand.”
“There is a huge correlation between my hunting and music; my fans are hunters,” said Green. “I play every weekend and look at the people I’m writing songs for, they like to be outside, they like to wear camouflage. For me, it all goes hand in hand and is ultimately my lifestyle. If I’m not on the road playing, I want to be in the woods somewhere. I am thrilled to partner with Franchi and share their enthusiasm for shooting, hunting and the outdoors with friends and family”
Green’s “We Out Here” tour continues in January 2022 with stops across the South including his home state of Alabama. Green will showcase fan favorites such as the Platinum-certified “I Wish Grandpas Never Died,” the No. 1 Gold hit “There Was This Girl,” and the latest music from his new album, Behind The Bar.
