Patrick Craven “Pat” Green, born April 5, 1972 in San Antonio, Texas, is an American Texas Country artist. Green drew the attention of Willie Nelson and joined a tour featuring Nelson and several other famous country musicians. Green’s appearance at the 1998 Willie Nelson 4 July Picnic was his first step towards nationwide recognition and he was soon playing sold out shows in Texas. Green was sponsored by Miller Lite and sold more than 250,000 albums, even without signing a major label recording contract. 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.
