Pat Green


Patrick Craven "Pat" Green (born April 5, 1972 in San Antonio, Texas) is an American Texas Country artist. Active since 1995, he has recorded a total of ten studio albums, including several independent works, three for Republic Records and two for BNA. Fifteen of his singles have charted on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts, of which the highest-peaking is the No. 3 "Wave on Wave" from his gold-certified album of the same name.

Green's first major-label recorded album, Three Days was released in 2001. "Wave on Wave" was released in 2003, with the title track reaching number 3 on the charts by the end of the year. In late 2004 "Lucky Ones" was Green's 3rd and final CD release on the Universal/Republic label. After spending many years playing to young audiences in college towns across America, Green joined popular country music artists including Keith Urban, Gretchen Wilson and Kenny Chesney on major tours.

Green released his album Cannonball in 2006. Later that year, he toured with labelmate Kenny Chesney. In February 2008, Green released a coffee table book containing photos of dance halls that he had frequented throughout his career entitled "Pat Green's Dance Halls & Dreamers". The book includes locations such a Gruene Hall, Luckenbach and Floore's Country Store as well as interviews with musicians Willie Nelson, Jack Ingram, Cross Canadian Ragweed, and Robert Earl Keen.

In 2008, Green released "Let Me", as the first single from his album What I'm For. The single reached 12 on the country charts, giving Green his first Top 20 single since "Feels Just Like It Should" reached No. 13 in 2006. Initially, "Country Star" was released as the second single, but it was withdrawn shortly after the title track ("What I'm For") began receiving airplay. "Country Star" peaked at 32, and "What I'm For" peaked at 28 on the country charts in July 2009. Green parted ways with BNA shortly after this.

Green started out releasing "Texas country music" with songs such as "I Like Texas" and "Southbound 35." His career has taken a significant turn since the release of his major label albums and big act tours. Now striving for more mainstream pop country stardom, Green continued to climb the Nashville charts and build a national fan base as he smoothed out his sound with contemporary country releases. As of 2011, Green has announced his return to Texas and independent music.

On September 2, 2014, Taste of Country premiered the official lyric video for a new song, "Girls from Texas", featuring Lyle Lovett. On September 16, 2014, "Girls from Texas" was made available on iTunes.

Green is an ardent fan of Major League Baseball's Texas Rangers. "I Like Texas," a song from his 1995 self-released album, Dancehall Dreamer, has been adopted as the Rangers' victory song.

Pat Green was born in San Antonio and raised in Waco, Texas, the eighth of nine siblings. His father was a stage actor, and Green fell in love with the musicals his father acted in.
Green began his musical career when he was 18 and in college at Texas Tech in Lubbock.
During those college years, Green started playing clubs and opening shows for other artists. In 1995, he put out his first independent record.
As a result of his hard work, Green had his first major label record in 2001, Three Days, on Republic/Universal.
The album Wave On Wave followed in 2003, and debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard country albums chart, and the title track cracked the Top 5 on the singles chart.
