Riley Green joined TikTok in March 2020 and since his debut on the social media platform he has shared behind-the-scenes clips and performance videos, but he hasn’t joined in on any of the TikTok dance crazes, and it doesn’t seem likely that he will. However, on Thursday (Jan. 6), the country superstar posted his first-ever video dancing on TikTok.
“Finally made my first tik tok dance…” Green captioned the video, alongside hashtags #bouttime, #hulahoop, #airguitar, #watchthis and #notforbeginners.
The clip features Green dancing to Eric Clapton’s “Cocaine” on his tour bus, while members of his touring team watch. One member of his touring personnel even joined Green as the Alabama native grabbed their leg to use as an air guitar.
Throughout the clip, Green dances and plays air guitar. One of the dances he called ‘the hula-hoop,’ which finds Green moving his hips in a circular motion, similar to what you would do if you were using a hula-hoop.
Since the video’s debut to the social media platform, it has amassed over 260k views.
Green recently performed alongside Chris Janson and Jon Pardi on New Year’s Eve Live: Nashville’s Big Bash, where the trio of superstars covered country hits by Hank Williams Jr and Dwight Yoakam.
The singer is currently in the midst of his headlining WE OUT HERE TOUR, which kicked off on November 3 in Athens, Georgia and is set to run through February 2022. Joining Green on the trek are special guests Corey Smith, Kameron Marlowe and Mike Ryan. For tickets and additional information on the tour, go to RileyGreenMusic.com.
