With his genre-bending country, pop, and R&B style, Nashville singer Drew Green first garnered attention as a songwriter before catching the spotlight with his 2020 tracks "Little More Be Alright' and "Right Where I Be." Both cuts appeared on his debut EP, Dirt Boy, Vol. 1. His 2021 follow-up, Dirt Boy, Vol. 2, included the streaming hit "Hooch." The soulful standalone single "Good Ol' Man" arrived in early 2022.
Born in McMinnville, Tennessee, Green grew up on a tree farm where his family introduced him to country artists like Sammy Kershaw and Alan Jackson. During his teens he began expanding his ears as friends exposed him to a mix of hip-hop, pop, and R&B performers, including Usher, Craig David, Matchbox Twenty, and Dr. Dre. He played in bands in high school and continued to hone his songwriting skills at college. Following his graduation, Green based himself in Nashville, singing in the house band at Tootsie's Orchid Lounge and working a day job at a bank, all the while pursuing a songwriting career.
He eventually gained a foothold in the industry, co-penning songs like Florida Georgia Line's "Colorado" with Hardy and Hunter Phelps. In November 2018, he signed a publishing contract with Brett James' Cornman Music. More opportunities followed and in June 2020, Green signed a recording contract with Villa 40/Sony Music Nashville, debuting that same month with the song "Little More Be Alright."
A second song, "Right Where I Be," followed a month later, with both tracks appearing on the EP Dirt Boy, Vol. 1. 2021 saw the release of the twangy single "Hooch," ahead of the arrival of Dirt Boy, Vol. 2. Green started out strong in early 2022 with the country-pop and R&B-leaning viral hit "Good Ol' Man." ~ Matt Collar
In 2023, Drew has spent the year writing, recording and releasing songs “Prayer List”, “Yep” and “Best Ex I Ever Had” whilst playing shows across the US. He’s gearing up to release his next single “Lotta Bit Of You”, after the song hitting virality on TikTok.
