Here's some more detail.
Thrilling audiences since age 10 with John Michael Montgomery's “Sold”, Levi, now 29 years old, proves every show that he is one of country music's brightest and fastest rising stars. With his non-stop energy, enthusiasm, and a smile that just won't quit...Levi creates a style of country music all on his own!
Levi and his band have opened for many national acts including - The Band Perry, Justin Moore, Tyler Farr, Jason Aldean, Easton Corbin, Travis Tritt, Bret Michaels, Colt Ford, Jo Dee Messina, and others. Levi has gained attention in Nashville...Music Row Magazine reports, “This young man is a strong, STRONG, singer." One event in particular that Levi is very proud of, was being invited to play for Manuel...the famous Nashville country music clothing designer's 79th birthday party! Best Friend to Johnny Cash (one of Levi's biggest music influences, along with Elvis Presley and Harry Chapin) Levi was floored with the response Manuel gave when asked what kind of look he thought Levi should have on stage...his answer....”I see you wearing black like the young Johnny Cash....no black coats though...and be humble about it.” You can imagine the heart-felt emotion Levi had after hearing this comment!
Having spent his entire collegiate career on stages all over the world with the famous Purdue Varsity Glee Club, Riggs has learned to craft his recordings to fit his live show. His first single, “My Best Friend's A Girl” ran up the charts as an indie label at a rapid pace, peaking at #52 on Billboard Indicator. But THEN, the song he released last year, "I'm Good", hit TOP 40 on Billboard Indicator... a huge accomplishment for an independent!
Like Johnny, Levi sings and writes about what's true to him...even if it means having to sing on the heavier side of subjects. “I don't write songs just to write...I write about what I have passion for, what I'm growing through, and what's real to me....and if I don't write it, I pick songs that sound like I did!” Riggs wants songs his fans can sing along to and go home with a piece of him and what he has experienced in life. His passion for his music and his fans shines through when he stands and signs autographs and takes pictures after his concerts at his “meet & greet” ....visiting until the last fan leaves.
When it comes to authenticity, Levi truly lives the country lifestyle he sings about, working with country music fans every day, selling corn and soybean seed to farmers in the state of Indiana. “I spend my weekdays visiting with growers and providing seed recommendations on their farms. They are my audience...That's who I am,” he says. Clearly one of the most ambitious country music artists, Riggs founded his own label Windridge Records, and named it after his family's Jersey dairy cattle farm.
