Rising country singer-songwriter and one of our 2018 Artists to Watch, Ryan Griffin has dropped his major-label debut single today. Titled “Right Here Right Now,” the Altadena/Warner Music Nashville artist, who inked his record deal in the third quarter of 2018, invites listeners and fans to celebrate the good times and being present to the joys of the present moment.
Sharing on posts across his social platforms, “Dibs” (Kelsea Ballerini) co-writer said, “It’s the most surreal, terrifying and exciting feeling knowing that something I have been working toward and pouring my heart into is finally out for the world to hear. I hope this message of living in the moment and choosing love over fear becomes just as much a part of your story as it is mine. #righthererightnow is out everywhere,” before concluding with a passionate invitational statement to “TURN IT UP!!”
And turning it up is exactly what we’ll do with this bop of a song. Penned by Griffin, Jason Massey, and Josh Landon, “Right Here Right Now” is truly about living in the present, in a moment filled with joy, admiration, and love overflowing. Tomorrow has enough problems of its own, and the better alternative is to enjoy the “right here right now.”
Produced by famed producer busbee (Maren Morris, Gwen Stefani, Carly Pearce), Griffin’s single leans strongly on the pop-country side, complete with a melodic hook that begs listeners to live in the “Right Here Right Now,” even if that means dancing their worries away to this song-cum-dance anthem. It is no surprise, too, that the Florida native cites country-pop superstar Keith Urban and R&B singer Brian McKnight as some of his main influences.
While Griffin has been working at his artistry for over a decade and experienced his fair share of ebbs and flows in the music industry, we believe “Right Here Right Now” is a hit that’s going to be on everyone’s playlist– country and non-country fans alike.
“Right Here Right Now” is now available everywhere you buy or stream music. Take a listen below and check out more new recently released music here on our ‘New Country Music’ playlist. Be sure to give the playlist a follow for your weekly new country music fix.
