Rising country artist Riley Green has dropped an emotional new single, "Numbers On The Cars." Find out more about the singer's new tune here!

Country music artist Riley Green continues to pave his way to stardom as he has released another single, “Numbers On The Cars,” and its music video!

Written by Green himself and recorded alongside Dann Huff, the emotional new tune got its inspiration from the songster’s grandpa and his love for NASCAR, as well as conveying a unique take on Alzheimers.

“Growing up near the Talladega Superspeedway I used to go over to my Grandaddy’s house as a kid and watch the races. He knew every drivers name, number and sponsor and so as the racing season kicks into full gear, it seemed like a perfect time to debut this song, I hope y’all enjoy it!,” Green shared via press release.

“Numbers On The Cars” follows Riley’s current single “In Love By Now” and his No. 1 debut “There Was This Girl.”

Riley has a busy schedule ahead of him as he will be joining Brad Paisley on the road this summer for his 2019 WORLD TOUR and switching lanes in the fall on Jon Pardi’s Heartache Medication Tour.

“Numbers On The Cars” Lyrics

Stopped by that house on Esmond Lake
He’s sittin’ in his easy chair
Watchin’ a Sunday evenin’ race
Tells me my grandma’s in the other room
Guess he forgot we laid her down
It’ll be a year come June
Then he mumbles about Vietnam
He don’t know who the hell I am
But the drivers, he tells me who they are
He still knows the numbers on the cars

Try to get him out like we used to
Now I load the truck and I drive the boat
‘Cause there ain’t much he can do
Cast him a line and watched it as it sank
Thinkin’ how we used to talk for hours
Now he just stares at the bank
He used to know every stop in this fishin’ hole
Though he probably thinks we’re in Mexico
But he knows his way around that boat
Even in the dark
And he still knows the numbers on the cars

I know he ain’t all there but I don’t care
My mind’s still full of memories with him
And he may not know all the words to the songs
But he still knows Merle Haggard’s voice when he hears it

I stopped by that house on Esmond Lake
With a couple of tickets
To go see a Sunday evenin’ race
As we watched those cars fly around the track
I asked the Lord for just one more time he’d bring my old friend back
Then somewhere around lap 23
That old man turned and smiled at me
For a moment I know he knows where we are
‘Cause he still knows the numbers
He still knows the numbers
He still knows the numbers, the numbers on the cars
He still knows the numbers
