Art Green is a native of Santa Barbara County. In 1992, along with his brother Marv Green, the Green Brothers band won the True Value/GMC Country Showdown for the Northwest. They went on to Branson, Missouri for the national finals and placed in the top five in the competition. Art has had success as a solo musician as well, winning Male Vocalist of the Year in 2002 for the North American Country Music Association International. And his solo CD, “Ride for the Brand” was named Album of the Year in 2001 by the California Country Music Association.
Art moved to Thompson Station, Tennessee in 1998, where he helped build a cutting horse ranch with trainer Brad Mitchell. This move renewed his love for raising cattle that he had shared with his father Arthur Sr., as a young man.
In 2004, Art returned to Solvang to manage the Alisal Ranch. He is currently involved with his own cow/calf operation where he and his wife Marina raise club calves for 4H, Grange and FFA students. In his spare time, Art enjoys collecting vintage guitars and performs occasionally at local events.
