When you tune into the *American Idol 14 premiere on Wednesday January 7, you will meet 18 year old Riley Bria. He plays a pretty mean guitar and is a pretty big Keith Urban fan! In order to impress, Riley sings a Keith deep cut, “Georgia Woods.”
Keith and Riley had previously met when the younger musician played with the country star on an awards show in 2012. Riley got the gig via the Grammy Band camp, which he had previously been a participant. Riley played guitar (Pretty well, I might add–you’ll see a clip) in Keith’s band. The audition is the first time he’s heard Riley sing!
In this interview, Ryan runs a quick Keith Urban quiz by Riley, and gets MOST of the questions correct!
*I’ve already seen the premiere. I’ll be writing up a preview soon!
