Capitol CMG’s multi-talented artist and one of People Magazine’s Emerging Artists, Riley Clemmons has accumulated over half a billion global streams and 85 million YouTube video views since the beginning of her career. After spending years refining her craft in writers’ rooms, Riley sky-rocketed onto the scene with her 2017 Capitol CMG debut single “Broken Prayers,” which has generated over 56 million global streams since its release. Her 2018 self-titled album debut quickly entered the Billboard Heatseekers chart, debuting at No. 13 and resulting in a New Artist Of the Year nomination and coveted performance spot at the 50th GMA Dove Awards. Riley released her much-anticipated sophomore, Godsend, in 2021 which cemented her place as an artist to watch. The Gold Certified lead single, “Fighting for Me,” became her top performing song with 160 million worldwide streams and “For The Good” has received over 40 million global streams to date. In 2021, Riley was nominated as Female Artist of the Year at the 9th Annual K-LOVE Fan Awards making her the youngest nominee in the show’s history and Billboard named her one of the top Christian Artists for the year ending 2022.

In this TCB exclusive, Riley talks about the creation of her recently released and highly-anticipated third album, Church Pewand how it stemmed from a time of rest to rediscover her creativity and identity. Riley shares the track that is most descriptive of her current season, and the song she did not expect to have as much listener impact as it has shown to date. She discusses the opportunity realized when debuting some of her new songs at the Grand Ole Opry, and teases some of the tracks she will share on tour this fall and winter with Zach Williams. Finally, Riley reflects on the accomplishment of “Fighting For Me” earning RIAA Certified Gold and closes with her message to those who will come in contact with her music.
