Gyth Rigdon, a native of Singer, will be the featured performer at 8 p.m. on Saturday, Apr. 11, at the 2020 Louisiana Railroad Days Festival.
Rigdon received nationwide fame with his second place finish on The Voice Season 16.
He started singing and playing music at the age of three. By the time he was eight he was singing in church, private parties, and talent shows. Throughout his school years there was never any rest; it was work by day and music by night. He graduated from high school in May 2012, and by November, he moved to Nashville with his guitar and a dream.
In 2016, his debut album “Where I Began,” and his first single “Body Language,” were both major successes, putting him on stage with major artists such as, Andy Grammar, Jake Owen, Chase Bryant, & Gary Allen. With over two million hits from across the globe, Gyth’s fan base is growing larger every day! “This is just a taste of what was to come,” Gyth said about his hot single “Body Language.” With the 2018 released album “When I’m Gone”, he is etching his name into Country Music at a rapid pace. For Rigdon, this project was inspired by a multitude of life experiences along with his family life. He says “People will relate to these songs, they will cry with them and they will party with them.”
In true southern fashion, American Pride is at the center of every Gyth Rigdon Show! You won’t see him perform without the American Flag present on stage, and he never finishes a set without paying honor to our flag and our great Country with the National Anthem. “It’s an honor to give back to those men and women who have given me my freedom, and taking a few minutes on stage to show them my appreciation is the least I can do.”
Rigdon was recently named top 10 National finalist for Cumulus Broadcasting’s NASH NEXT Competition and performed for the top names in the business, Scott Borchettta, Desmond Child, and Brantley Gilbert. With Desmond Child giving him the ultimate honor from his comment on Rigdon’s performance of Body Language saying, “If you have 10 more songs like that… you are headed to the Grammy’s!”
With his fans and followers growing by the thousands every day, Rigdon is set and ready to make his mark on the Country Music Scene. So get ready for the ride… because there is so much more to come.
