We are met with scenes of Riley and his band rocking out on the stage of their “home bar” interspersed with shots of people having fun together. Playing pool and sword fighting with the cues is just one of the many amusing scenes from this playful music video, and it definitely makes it all the more memorable. Low lighting and dancing crowds also contribute to how this video makes the song come to life, as it really feels like a close hangout at everyone’s favorite bar. Overall, this music video is a great accompaniment to “Home Bar,” and definitely compels the viewer to find a home bar of their own.
“I wanted to create a video that represents my vision for what a Home Bar is like. I got to have a bunch of my friends in the video, so it was a blast shooting the music video for Home Bar!” -Douglas Riley

Rising Country Artist, Douglas Riley, originally from Goshen, Indiana, currently resides in Nashville where he performs regularly with his band in honky tonk venues on Broadway and in towns across the Southeast. After high school, Riley attended Ball State University where he helped form his first band. “After a show in September 2001, I remember getting ready to make the drive back to Goshen,” recalls Riley. “I was driving up to the entrance ramp to Interstate 69 near Fairmount, Indiana where we had performed the night before. The highway runs north and south there. North would have meant returning home to Goshen, and south would have meant heading to Nashville. I was at a crossroads in my life – literally. At the last minute, I turned the truck onto the entrance ramp to I-69 South and headed to Nashville. I did not tell my parents. I remember having about $200, a change of clothes, and to top it all off, the fuel gauge in the truck did not work.
Eventually, I told my parents about my decision and with the help of some relatives, I was able to find an apartment and not long after that I got a job. I was excited to be in Nashville. I had finally made the move I dreamt of making for most of my life." Soon after arriving in Nashville, Riley began to perform at some of the top legendary honky tonks on Lower Broadway including Layla’s Nashville, The Stage On Broadway, Legend’s Corner and others. He has also branched out and currently plays at many venues throughout the states of Alabama, Tennessee, and Kentucky. While honing his live performance chops, Riley turned his attention to his songwriting. The honesty and truth of his life experiences are reflected in the songs on his latest album, A Love Like That, of which Riley penned all thirteen songs. The accompanying music video for the song, “That Muddy Water,” was directed by well-known Nashville videographer, Flick Wiltshire. It is currently receiving and/or has recently received airplay on TCN-The Country Network and The Country Fix show which airs on Heartland TV, Circle TV, Z Living TV, StrykTV, The Family Channel, Rightnow TV, and Country TV – New Zealand, as well as The Heartland Network, Music Mix USA, Lovin’ Lyrics, New Country Buzz and CMT Australia.
Riley continues to inspire fans with his unique and personal approach to songwriting, as well as his high-energy, heart-felt live performances. He loves to be out playing shows and making a positive impact in the world with his music. “The best way to experience my music is at a show- in person,” explains Riley. “From songwriting to playing live shows, music is my passion. I look forward to many more years of growing as an artist, continuing to write my best material and performing the best show possible for audiences near and far alike.”
