Levi Riggs will headline a free concert Saturday, Aug. 10, at Rushville’s Riverside Park Amphitheater.
The free concert will begin at 7 p.m. with opener Amish Open Mic Band.
Riggs, a Danville native, has performed all over the world and has opened for country stars such as The Band Perry, Easton Corbin, Colt Ford, Justin Moore and Brett Eldredge.
Rocketing on the momentum of singles “My Best Friend’s A Girl” and “There’s Still A Place For That,” Levi Riggs’ newest CD “I’m Good” is expected to be released on iTunes Aug. 20.
Swooning audiences since age 10 with John Michael Montgomery’s “Sold,” Levi, now 27 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.
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.
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, a huge accomplishment for an independent! This single exploded with excitement from new fans begging to hear it at Riggs’ concerts. Originally released January of 2012, the excitement of this single continued as fans drove from New York to Minnesota just to hear Levi sing the single at the 2012 WE Fest (arguably the largest outdoor country music festival in the United States).
