It was this week we found out that a young Manitoba drummer has made some serious noise on social media.

After only 5 years of being on You Tube -- his videos have officially hit over 1,000,000 views!! That's A LOT!! You can find Riley Sobering on Facebook, Instagram, Google and You Tube... and people ARE!! They are watching -- from around the world! 

We invited Riley to the studio Wednesday to talk about this amazing feat and it was evident that he is hugely thankful to each and every person who has taken the time to watch even one of his video's -- that's just the kind of person he is.

Now, thanks to all of this social media business, Riley had the opportunity to head down to Nashville - what he called "a once in a lifetime" chance! 

From the sounds of it -- it won't just be "once in a lifetime".  Riley Sobering - Manitoba musician extraordinaire -- check out Riley Sobering Drumming -- just about anywhere!! Well done Riley -- over 1 million views!! Congratulations!!
