It's funny how something as simple as a guitar can change someone's life completely; after all, it's only wood glued together and a set of strings. However, that is exactly what it did for a 17 year old, Riley Redding. Growing up he had the inspiration and support of his grandma who was exceptionally talented at piano, guitar, accordion and a vivid songwriter. She bought him his first guitar from a small local music shop called Victor's Music Exchange in Lindale, TX. That's where it all started. Night after night he began learning chord after chord and song after song. Practice became second nature. Summers were spent working, laying water line and sewer mains with his father during the day and learning the way of the troubadour by night.
